2013 Quiksilver Ceremonial Chile – Trials

With a solid swell sweeping its way up Chile’s coastline the Quiksilver Ceremonial trials were held at 18-20 foot Punta de Lobos. The left hand point break hosted a field of 24 surfers all battling it out for a ticket to the main event. After some crazy wipeouts and epic rides the top 4 surfers will have a chance to surf in the first stop of the 2013/14 Big Wave World Tour. Congratulations to all who qualified, see you when the Quiksilver Ceremonial gets green lit!

Qualifiers:
1. Fernando Zegers
2. Camilo Hernández
3. Morris Tapia
4. Ismael Herrero

The Quiksilver Ceremonial waiting period is from May 15 – June 15, 2013. For photos and video of previous years and much more visit the event website.

Taking off right behind the rocks there isn't much room for error at Punta de Lobos.

The paddle out to the lineup   is no walk in the park. Any takers?

These four have proved themselves and we look forward to seeing more of their surfing at the Quiksilver Ceremonial.
