Back in 2001 two surfers visited the small fishing village of Pucatrihue in Southern Chile and for the first time, the local kids witnessed the sport of surfing.
The 2015/2016 Big Wave Tour got underway yesterday at Punta de Lobos in Chile, but due to the late arrival of the predicted huge swell, the organisers only managed to complete the first round of the competition.
24 of the worlds best big wave surfers will now be steaming their way to Chile to throw themselves down the monstrous waves being driven by a huge weather system off of Antarctica
The good news for Bodyboard fans is that you will be able to watch the action from La Punta Uno via a live webcast
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.
