Underdog watch: Rafa Rivera

When it comes to the final round of the APB Tour, the Encanto Pro Cultura in Puerto Rico, local rider Rafael Rivera will be carrying the hopes of his country.

The reigning Puerto Rican national bodyboarding champion will be hoping to cause some upsets at his hometown contest and has a proven track record that is sure to make some of the sport’s big names more than a little nervous.

Rivera won the last Encanto Pro back in 2013, defeating six-time world champion Guilherme Tamega in the semis and then Benslimane Atnane of Morroco in the final round.

And this latest video from “Rafa” shows the local rider is certainly ready to do his country proud.
