Rodrigo Correa claims the Shock Master Challenge 2015
- 14 May 2015 | Bodyboarding
Rodrigo Correa has claimed the Shock Master Challenge 2015, in Itacoatiara, Brazil.
Shock is dangerous slab located in the one of the heaviest waves in Brazil. The rocky break only works when the swell is really powerful. And that was precisely what happened in the first days of May.
The Shock Master Challenge 2015 had 10 invitees in the Masters division: Guilherme and Rodrigo Correa, Gugu Barcellos, Rafael "Presunto", Rodrigo Monteiro, Guilherme Gianelli, André Paiva, Celio Baptista, Fabio Simonin and Paulo Esteves.
With 4-foot plus waves breaking on dry reef, some rider decided to wear helmets before starting to pull in to the barrels on offer. Shock is more than a heavy spot; you are also invited to beat the tricky rip currents.
Rodrigo Correa rode a beautiful barrel in the final to claim the Shock Master Challenge 2015 title. Guilherme Gianelli finished runner-up, and Guilherme Correa took third place.
