Antofagasta Event to Define Chilean Bodyboard Champion
While 2013 is long gone, the Nilda Point Fest event in Antofagasta will crown the Chilean champion as well as define places in the national team.
250 competitors are expected across a range of categories, with each bodyboarder having their accomodation and some meals covered during the competition. With support from the Instituto Nacional de Juventud, Instituto Nacional de Deportes, Carabineros de Chile and the Chilean Navy, the event will be a preview for the annual Antofagasta Bodyboarding Festival, which will once again be part of the World Bodyboarding Tour, along with the event at “El Gringo” in Arica.
First place in men’s and women’s at the Nilda Point Fest will receive a wildcard to the Antofagasta event. The event is taking place opposite the Parque Nicolás Tirado and will run until February 23.
