EDP Surf Pro Estoril 2012 Results

EDP Surf Pro Estoril 2012 presented by Billabong, the ASP 6 Star Women's Event taking place at Praia de Carcavelos, in Cascais, Portugal ended with an action packed final in two to three waves and windy conditions. The final brought together Justine Dupont from France and Nage Melamed from Hawaii. Both of the girls staged an impressive show, but it was Justine who manages to score better and claim the title.

It was a rough season for Justine Dupont this year, due to an injury that kept her away from the podium for some while, but the win at Estoril shows that she gained her confidence back and she is ready to reach her top level of performance in the near future. The title at Estoriol marks her first Star event win. First out of many to come.
At the end of the event she said: “I’m just s it’s the first time I win a Star event and I think it’s the first time a European wins a 6-Star so I’m just over the moon right now!! I’m so happy to have such a great team in France all the girls were rooting for me so I’m super happy to make that final and I want to thank everyone who helped me and gave me great advices that’s what I needed!! O happy.”

Although she finished runner up in the Estoril event, Nage Melamed is not unhappy with her performance: “I’m ecstatic right now! Mean it would have been great to take the whole thing out but it’s my best result of the year, first time making a final in a 6-Star so I’m just really happy right now and it’s a great contest! It was really exciting to surf against such great surfers and be able to beat them, it definitely puts my confidence at a higher level and makes me think I can do it forever aha!”
