Today we see the start of the next stage on the A.P.B World Tour get underway in Chile, with a decent swell expected on the beaches of Arica. The heavy slab break is set to see Surf in the 6 foot range and with a 16 second period we are surely in for a dazzling display as Tour leader, Jared Houston fights of challenges from P.L.C, Uri Valadao and 2013 Champion Ben Player.
This morning we have seen the release of the Arica Draft Draw by the A.P.B and also the announcement that Keahi Parker has secured the Wild Card slot at the Chilean challenge. Heat 21 is already shaping up to be an exciting round as Houston finds himself up against Jacob Romero, who will no doubt be aiming to go big following his ridiculous invert last year.
