Miss Bikini Hang Loose Santa Catarina Pro

With another lay day on tap for the Hang Loose Santa Catarina Pro in Brazil, there’s got to be something to keep the top 45 entertained in the harsh 65-degree winter weather. Due to the ASP World Tour schedule change this year, the Brazil contest is currently being run in Brazil’s winter instead of their summer – which means the beaches of Santa Catarina are missing their typical g-string clad crowds.

Why not have a bikini contest then? That’ll make up for the missing piece in the draw to Brazil – we’re surely not complaining. I wonder who Miss Bikini Hang Loose Santa Catarina Pro’s favorite surfer is? Hopefully she got to meet him as part of her prize package…
