The world’s best bodyboarders are set to assemble on the Brazilian coastline for the first event on the 2015 APB World Tour, The Itacoatiara Pro.
Itacoatiara provides a classic beach break wedge set up that lends itself to high performance riding.
“This place is definitely one of Brazils most iconic locations,” said APB CEO Alex Leon.
“I’m confident looking at the forecast, that we’ll see some amazing performances from our competitors who are vying for their chance to be crowned the Itacoatiara Champ and gain points to win the 2015 APB World Championship.”
Over 100 competitors are set to travel from around the globe for what is shaping up to be a massive gathering of the tribes with a solid mix of talent across all the two divisions, including Men & Pro Junior.
The 4 wildcards that have been chosen for the Pro Men’s event include 4 of the best Brazilian riders of all time.
At the top of the list is multiple World Champion Guilherme Tamega.
Despite stepping off the APB World Tour to enjoy some down time, Tamega will pull on the vest in front of his home crowd in the coming days.
” I am very happy to have been granted the wild card in Itacoatiara so I can retire at my home, performing for my people.,” said Tamega.
Joining Tamgea will be big wave chargers Dudu Pedra, Kalani Latanzi and Jose Otavio who have successfully received the other three wildcards .
“ I am very happy to receive the wild card to compete at home! I’m sure that the waves will be there , and I’m ready to do my job!! “ – Dudu Pedra.
