After the successful first edition that saw the local team taking the advantage of the first chance to defend their home break, putting on a historic performance, winning the ISA World Team Champion Trophy, the 2015 Championship will be once again a tough battle between the best bodyboarders our planet has to offer. 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) or 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.
