Iain Campbell clinches the 2017 Viana World Bodyboard Championship

Iain Campbell has taken out the 2017 Viana World Bodyboard Championship, at Praia da Arda, Viana do Castelo, in the north of Portugal.

The South African bodyboarder won his second consecutive APB World Tour event and cemented his reputation in the Portuguese beach breaks. Campbell displayed a solid and confident performance in Sintra and Viana.

For the Viana final, Pierre-Louis Costes and Iain Campbell met in wind-affected, three-to-six-foot waves. Despite the tricky ocean conditions, both riders found a few opportunities in a shifty lineup.
