Epicentre.tv is excited to present the APB Itacoatiara Pro featuring the world’s best bodyboarders attempting to conquer one of the best waves in the world!
Itacoatiara is a small beach located just north of Rio De Janeiro in Niteroi (Brazil). This beach is roughly 800m wide in between steep cliffs on either side that create side wedges up and down the sand bars which ultimately creates the perfect wedge for Bodyboarding. In 2015, a 10 – 15 feet swell smashed the coast of Brazil and the APB was lucky enough to run the event over these days which showcased the sport in its best light. 2015 champion Amaury Lavernhe was on fire the entire event and didn’t drop a heat.
