Chile gets huge waves for the Quiksilver Ceremonial Big Wave Contest

Pete Mel, Carlos Burle and Grant “Twiggy” Baker joined Chile’s most respected big wave surfers for a single-day contest at Punta de Lobos this past week. Chilean legend and Quiksilver surfer Ramon Navarro started the contest back in 1998 with the help of his fellow Chilean big wave surfers. This year, with $10,000 on the line, surfers from the four corners of the globe came out to compete against Punta de Lobos local chargers.
