El Confital 

The storybook ending to the IBA World Bodyboard Tour continued today at El Confital in the Canary Islands with perfect 3-5 footers greeting competitors in the opening two rounds of the Men’s competition.

Unlike our Pro Surfing counterparts, the race for a World Championship has never been closer and this final event at El Confital in the Canary Islands is delivering a Grand Stand finish to an amazing year of competition.

Three IBA World Titles are up for grabs with the Men’s, Women’s and Drop Knee champions all being decided this week.

Everything about this set-up is incredible.

The structure is massive and the crowds of passionate spectators are intense, but its the wave itself that steals the show.

A perfect right hand point with a ramping end bowl that allows for highflying aerobatics or deep tube rides. It’s the ultimate arena for the showdown of the millennium.
 
Today the locals showed the worlds best how to ride Confital with a fearless approach to the opening rounds.

Emesto Evana (Esp) was the days top scorer taking both the single highest score and best two wave combo to stamp himself as a serious contender.

The other highlights were coming thick and fast.

Every time you looked to the line-up some local was fanging down the line and busting mind-boggling moves.

“I didn’t want to rush into a sequel and produce something I wasn’t happy with” Kingy said. That said King has spent his time patiently working on 'The Joker II', getting this film to a level he is happy with.

“Finally the Joker II is ready and I can’t wait for people to see it. It’s completely different to the first one, but very similar in a lot of ways as well.
