Andrea: bodyboarding is not her favorite hobby

When a beautiful German lady turns her back on perfect waves, then it's because some hardcore bodyboarders are pulling into heavy closeouts.

Arica, Chile: the Latin Pipeline and Backdoor

Ben Player will be defending his Arica Chilean Challenge title, the third stage of the 2014 APB World Tour hits Chile, on the 15th August.

They call it the Latin Pipeline and Backdoor. Arica is located on the northern tip of Chile, and it offers a unique cold water reef break that seems designed for high-performance bodyboarding.

The wave offers a heavy left-hander, but also a long right-hander. Its consistency and heavy barrels are complemented with a huge air arena that can easily test champions.
