Cristobal carves his way to new world record
Peruvian surf star Cristobal de Col recently pushed through fatigue, mental pressure and a jellyfish plague to set a brand new world record by performing 34 carved turns on the longest wave in the world at the Red Bull Chicama Challenge.
CHICAMA (Peru) - Waves that run for over two minutes are a common sight in Chicama, a surfer’s paradise in the north of Peru known as the longest left-hand wave in the world. So there was no better place for the Red Bull Chicama Challenge, in which ISA World Surfing Games Junior Champion Cristobal de Col, his team and family spent two full days attempting to set a brand new world record for the most manoeuvres performed on a single wave.
