The forecast is for an air show at Praia Brava in Itajaí this weekend. This is the expectation for the second Air Festival Brava Beach , which will bring together 24 of the country's best aerialists on the Brava waves on Saturday and Sunday, in front of the Hike.
To raise the bar and test the limits, each heat will be drawn which aerial should be carried out by the competitors. The draw will be done through a roulette wheel with the options of the aerial maneuvers. If no athlete can make the aerial draw, the athlete who gets closer to completing will be the winner.
Among the many talents that will be at the Air Festival, the highlights are Matheus Navarro , Petterson Thomaz, Alan Fendrich , Daniel Kuerten, Gustavo Schlikman, Guilherme Tranquili , Pamplona Aminantes, Michelangelo Bernardoni and Yuri Castro. To judge this galley were invited Augustin Mica, Victor Drews and Vinicius D'avila. The championship is supervised by the Surfing Association of Itajaí Beaches - ASPI, which will also assist in the trial.
Before the grand finale, the Expression Session will be held with the participation of 24 athletes. According to the organization, at this time there will be no interference. It will be the moment of fraternization of surfers.
The prizes will be distributed to the winners R $ 2,000, as well as kits and a Snapy board for the champion. The public can also win several gifts that will be drawn through the Instagram of the event @airfestivalpraiabrava.
