THE ARICA CHILEAN CHALLENGE, CHILE 2015 – An APB Bodyboarding World Tour Contest.

16th July 2015

            On the eve of what is shaping up to be an incredible historic event in Chile, the solid 8-12 feet swell started to hit the coastline of northern Chile which saw “Flopos” turn on today with some huge waves and the top Bodyboarder’s of the world didn’t hesitate to get amongst the action.

            Mike Stewart, Uri Valadao, Iain Campbell, Jose Otavio, Ryan Hardy, Amaury Lavernhe and most of the top 32 were on show today at “Flopos” warming up in the huge swell and the guys delivered a great show for early spectators.


Mike Stewart quoted – “This contest is going to be insane and the forecast looks mental!”

The ACC will commence tomorrow morning at 8:00am (Chile Time) with Round 1 of the Mens Division. If the waves are contestable and conditions prevail then the APB Tour will kick off the 2nd event this year in mind-blowing conditions and we should expect to see the best Bodyboarder’s in the world putting themselves in some of the scariest situations which in turn will be a spectacle not to miss.

Stay tuned to for all the action.
