"Luz in Latin America" is a documentary film focused on one of the most important names in female bodyboarding.

In Latin America, Luz Marie Grande is a star. Not only because of her qualities as a bodyboarder but also for her social work with disadvantaged children in Puerto Rico, Argentina, Brazil, and Peru.

After three years in the making, "Luz in Latin America" promises to reveal her life story, the origins of bodyboarding, and the future of the sport in the region.

Luz Marie Grande's bodyboarding achievements include victories in Pipeline, the US Open of Bodyboarding, the Arica Chilean Challenge, and the Latin American Surfing Championship (ALAS).

The documentary features several other high-profile riders, including Neymara Carvalho, Cesar Bauer, Facundo Ciappina, Ruth Parra, Carlo Rivera, Babby Quiñones, Evaristo Merced, Aníbal Santiago, Alfredo Riollanos, Cano Ruiz, Robert Vega, Pancho Galdós, and more.
