BBC Cornwall Surfing Correspondent Simon Alexander reports from the line-up.

Alan Stokes' decision not to defend his English title nearly paid dividends for the Cornishman in Portugal.

Stokes narrowly missed out on a quarter-final place at the 1star World Qualifying Series Buondi Caparica Pro.

The Newquay surfer finished third behind Portugal's Joao Antunes at Costa da Caprica but still finished as the top Briton at the contest.

Stokes, who also lost to Antunes in the previous round, picked up 100 world tour points for his equal 17th finish.

Welshman Nathan Phillips and Cornish pair Mark Harris and Jake Boex bowed out in round two, Phillips looking the most impressive of the trio.

France's dominated the final with Patrick Bevan and Frederic Robin taking the top two places on the winners rostrum.

Spaniard Pablo Guitierrez was third.

Current WQS standings after 10 events:

1 Shane Beschen (USA), 3,605 points
2 Neco Padaratz (Brazil), 3,027
3 Michael Campbell (Australia), 2,751
4 Chris Ward (USA), 2,521
5 Bobby Martinez (USA), 2,325
54 Russell Winter (GB), 1,120
77 Llewellyn Whittaker (GB), 886.
