Small waves put riders to the test at La Cupula

It’s almost finals’ day at Playa Llacolén. The 2018 Antofagasta Bodyboard Festival (ABF) continues in La Cupula, one of the finest boogie waves in Chile.

Despite a slight decrease in wave height, the world’s best bodyboarders were able to adapt to the conditions on offer and delivered exciting acrobatic performances.

Spectators on the beach and thousands of viewers who follow the live online broadcast witnessed the 2017 ABP champion, Neymara Carvalho, being eliminated in the quarterfinals at the hands of the Japanese powerhouse Ayaka Suzuki.
