Bodyboard Pro Festival: sunny Venezuela

Venezuelan bodyboarders are dominating the 2011 Bodyboard Pro Festival, as competition enters quarterfinals in the Men's, Women's and Drop Knee divisions.

Damian King, Alejandro Hernandez, David Mantellini, Leoylan Monasterios, Leonel Marcano, Eder Luciano, Enyer Moncada and Sergio Alonzo are set to battle for the trophy.

Eunate Aguirre is in the hunt for her first world title and is definitely the one to beat in the Women's event, but she faces a tough heat against Neymara Carvalho and several of the top women riders still in the competition.

Riders are enjoying 3-4 foot waves and some good ramps for aerial spectacle, in Parguito Beach, Venezuela.
