PRAIA DAS MACAS, SINTRA, PORTUGAL-  The 3rd Annual Sintra Fest which included live music, giveaways, and the 5th Annual International Bodyboarding Film Festival drew a crowd of 5000 people for two nights of fun and films on September 26th and 27th, during the competition window for the 19th annual running of the Sintra Portugal Pro.  Check out the official press releases (in Portuguese and English)  along with photos from Sintra Fest below!

Portugues:

A 3ª edição do Sintra Fest foi um sucesso, um Festival marcado pela boa "vibe", ambiente e música e que retrata o Verão, praia e o Bodyboard. Foram cerca de 5 mil pessoas que passaram no Sintra Fest para ouvir Valete, Blaya, Dj Ride, Dj Slimcutz&Ace (Mind da Gap), Spitfyah Sound, Nubai Sound, The StoneWolf Band e Urbanvibsz.

As 5 mil pessoas tiveram também oportunidade de ver o 5º Festival Internacional de Cinema Bodyboard, apresentado pela Ride It! Magazine e organizado pelo brasileiro Elmo Ramos.
Foram 4 filmes de Bodyboard, imagens fantásticas que passavam ao som das bandas e que chamavam a atenção, pois foram 4 filmes com grande destaque, o Passing Trough, The Mexican Mirage, Alambre e The Hubboards, todos enquadrados no 5º Festival de Cinema de Bodyboard.

Este conceito é inovador e permite a divulgação do verdadeiro Bodyboard para um público jovem, que gosta de praia e boa música. Nas palavras do organizador João Grego “um feito inédito na Europa e que despertou a atenção aos jovens que passaram no Festival!”.
Um obrigado pelo suporte das marcas GT boards, Hubboards, Pride e Kpaloa. E todo o staff da revista Ride It! que fizeram possível a realização desse evento que foi um sucesso.
