World Press Photo 2008

The Portuguese photographer and photojournalist Miguel Lopes Barreira (Record newspaper) achieved third place in World Press Photo's best shots in the Sports Action category.

Barreira's photo shows Jaime Jesus, a Portuguese bodyboarder, in a middle of an aerial move, surrounded by white water.

The shot was taken in Praia do Norte, Nazare, a Portuguese coastal town known for its world class tubular waves.

The photojournalist got the moment on the 16th December, during a Portuguese Bodyboarding Championship.

It's almost finals' day at Playa Llacolén. The 2018 Antofagasta Bodyboard Festival (ABF) continues in La Cupula, one of the finest boogie waves in Chile.
