Athletes from More Than a Dozen Countries to Compete for Gold Medals December 6-13
La Jolla, California, November 23, 2015 - The 2015 Iquique Para Todos ISA World Bodyboard Championship is just two weeks away, as National Teams from every continent are set to converge in the ocean of Chile's wave-rich north coast.
From December 6 to 13, athletes from more than a dozen countries will compete for the Gold Medals and showcase their world-class skill sets at the hollow reef break of la Punta 1 in Iquique, Chile.
Iquique will host the 2015 ISA World Bodyboard Championship for the second consecutive year, after the 2014 edition marked the first time an ISA World Championship took place in the country. The Chileans took advantage of the first chance to defend their home break and put on a historic performance, winning the ISA World Team Champion Trophy.
The world-class waves of la Punta 1 are attracting the world's best bodyboarders to the ISA World Championship, including many past ISA Gold Medalists. France's Amaury Lavernhe (Dropknee, 2014), Japan's Shiori Okazawa (Girls U-18, 2012), Brazil's Neymara Carvaljo (Open Women, 2013), Peru's Carolina Botteri (Girls U-18, 2014), Brazil's Eder Luciano (Open Men, 2012, 2013) and France's Pierre Louis Costes (Open Men, 2012) are among the ISA Gold Medalists who have confirmed their attendance and will look to return to the top of the podium this year in Chile.
