The iconic bodyboarding contest has come to a close at the infamous Canarian slab with two Canarian residents climbing the highest podium places.
Although the finals weren't blessed by the classic El Frontón conditions, the waves on offer were rideable and offered a few barreling opportunities.

For many riders, El Frontón is one of the best bodyboarding slabs on planet Earth. It breaks over a lava bottom, but it can also break bones.
Located on the north coast of Gran Canaria, in the Canary Islands, El Frontón is a heavy A-frame, freak and dangerous wave powered by a shallow reef.
For those who choose to go left, they'll find a mutant barreling beast that will defy any experienced bodyboarder. If you take off on a right-hand wave, get ready to embark on a challenging freight train.

The Association of Professional Bodyboarders (APB) accused the promoters of the Frontón King of planning a "rebel tour."
In a long and detailed statement, the organization led by Alex León explained the reasons why this year's Frontón King was not included in the official APB World Tour schedule.
León and his team talk about "lengthy negotiations" and a nine-month delay in payments to bodyboarders and staff.
