Praia Grande, Sintra, Portugal (Sunday, Aug 21, 2011) – The Sintra Portugal Pro is event 5 of 8 on this years Mens GSS, marking the start to the second semester of the 2011 World Title race.

Gastao Entrudo is the new rider for the Grand Flavour in Europe

Grandflavour investing in European riders – great news and probably a good sign for europe, meaning there are more and more talents out of the old continent, more riders, a strong bodyboard scene and hopefully good things coming in the future with euro bodyboarding.

Excerpt from the GF website:
“Gastão Entrudo is the new rider for the Grand Flavour in Europe. Right now, the Portuguese are preparing for the BOX PRO and being one of the 24 on the IBA Tour is going to fight for the best result. These are some pictures from Gastão surfing in Western Australian waters since he got here no more then 1 week ago…”
