Iain Campbell has taken out the Viana World Bodyboard Championship, at Arda Beach, in Portugal.

The Durban-based bodyboarder conquered his second consecutive APB World Tour event and currently sits on top of the rankings. Campbell defeated former world champion Amaury Lavernhe in the final.

"I'm honored to come out victorious! I have been on a mission, and it's paid off. This sport of bodyboarding is so amazing! It was awesome to have the structure and area that we could use to our full advantage!" expressed Iain Campbell.

Both riders caught seven waves in the final, and their best waves were simultaneously the first and the last. However, Campbell ended up edging out Lavernhe in both rides and won the trophy.

In the Pro Junior division, Matheus Bastos used his air and roll repertoire to defeat fellow countryman Socrates Santana in an all-Brazilian final. Joaquim Soto and Pedro Machado finished third and fourth.

The next stop on the 2016 APB World Tour is the Nazare Pro, a 4-star event that will run from October 3rd-11th at Praia do Norte.
