One single wave can change a career. One single wave can change the history of a sport. Kalani Lattanzi is the man of the moment for a monstrous ride at Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
It's the Mexican Pipeline, one of the most dangerous waves in the world. But Kalani Lattanzi, a former Latin American champion, was not afraid of paddling into this bomb with his boogie board.
The waves were arriving in the 20-to-30 foot range. Surfers were wiping out in the massive sets. You could smell fear in the air. However, the Maui-born bodyboarder wanted to make history. One, two, three, go!

The Cave Rock Invitational 2015 will take place in June, in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Andre Botha is the 2014 defending event champion, and he has already been confirmed in this year's all-star line-up. The cream of the crop has been cautiously picked by the iconic organizer.
"They all have a Hawaiian season under their belt. We have a South African celebrity, the inventor of the 'death launch' and, hands down, one of the hardest chargers to come out of the country ever," notes Michael Ostler, organizer of the Cave Rock Invitational.

Mark McCarthy claimed the 2015 Cape Classic, at Yzerfontien and Derde Steen, in Cape Town, South Africa.
Over 60 bodyboarders attended the event which was initially run at Yzerfontien and later moved to Derde Steen. The finals had waves for all, allowing for inverts, backflips and carves.
In the Women's final, the new star of South African bodyboarding Robyn Nutt forced Pamela Bowren to give her best to take the overall title. Nutt finished second; Georgi McKeone and Francoise Joubert kept third and fourth.
