From Brazil, Danilo Couto heads to Chile, joining locals for some hefty drops and equally hefty beatings at El Buey, Arica. Look out for Danilo's solid backside drop at 3 mins 45 which has seen him enter the 2015 Billabong Ride of the Year Entry in the XXL Big Wave Awards.
"It was the most solid south pacific swell so far this season," says Danilo. "We were looking to surf as close to the storm as possible. We saw the swell arrived in South Chile, Punta Lobos but windy and stormy, then we proceeded north to Arica. The swell was pumping, peaking in the morning, there was around 6 of us all morning. This same swell provided big waves for the Pico Alto event, and the Mexican beach breaks."
