Isabela Sousa in Panama

Lush forest, warm-water barrels and technical surfing.
Bela didn’t have the best start to the year by her lofty standards – the three-time world champ bowed out of the Pipe contest in the quarterfinals – but only a fool would discount her chances at taking out title #4 this year. The Brazilian just completed a trip to Panama where she drove her beaming smile through countless Caribbean drainers and took to the air with some seriously tech surfing. Enjoy.
