Tanner McDaniel looked dangerous in earlier rounds, but in the finals he was lethal. He defeated two world champions, first Iain Campbell then Pierre-Louis Costes, to claim his first ever APB Tour victory.
The conditions yesterday in Arica were some of the best that have ever been seen at this location. A solid 2 to 3 metre swell greeted competitors in the morning and the action was non-stop from the beginning. The local community turned up in force to see some bodyboarding for the history books.
