The Bodysurfing scene in Brazil has been gaining serious momentum.

November 2017 will certainly be a highlight at one of the most popular beaches for bodysurfing Rio de Janerio,  São Conrado beach. 

The FBS event will take place for 2 days, with  a competition waiting window to ensure best conditions Nov 11/12, 18/19, or 25/26.  There will be 32 places in the bodysurfing category, and 12 places in Handboarding.  Another highlight will the women's bodysurfing category with 8 slots available.  

Slyde Handboards was stoked to send over a few handboards for competitors to use, and as giveaway as prizes for the winners.  

"We have seen interest and enthusiasm for handboarding steadily increasing in South America, specifically in Peru, Chile, and Brazil.  We're so stoked to see Slyde handboards being used internationally and the bodysurfing movement spreading on a global scale" Angela Watts
