It is not every day that I get to see some of my favourite professional bodyboarding riders along with my friends and a bunch of great local riders sharing waves in one of my favourite waves spot in Puerto Rico.
That was the case this last Sunday 15 2015 at Margara, Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
A lot of the professional riders that came for the Encanto Pro Cultura, including new world champion Jared Houston, Encanto Pro Champion Jeff Hubbard, Dave Hubbard and Pierre-Louis Costes, stayed a few days after the event was finished and scored some fun waves.
It was a great show to watch and appreciate. For me, it seemed and felt like bodyboarding is living great times of growth and expansion. Here are a few images of what happened there.
After two weeks of intense bodyboarding work, I’ve come to the conclusion that the bodyboarding family and community is getting stronger and very professional.
Great vibes, great infrastructure, great athletes and great desires to shape this sport into one of the best in the world. I feel grateful to be part of the history of bodyboarding.
