Iain Campbell and Joana Schenker win the 2017 Sintra Pro

Iain Campbell and Joana Schenker have taken out the 2017 Sintra Pro, in Praia Grande, Portugal.

With the Portuguese bodyboarding contest celebrating its 22nd year, there was certainly no shortage of drama in the water. The event tested the athlete’s fitness levels by delivering all sorts of ocean conditions.

In the first days of competition, men, women and young riders had to battle powerful onshore wind and wave conditions, as well as strong currents and shifting peaks.
