The Brazilian Surfing Confederation (CBSurf), in partnership with Big Waves Brasil (BWB), announces the launch of the CBSurf Big Wave Index Krown, an event that will crown the first Brazilian Big Wave Surfing Champion. Praia do Cardoso, Laguna (SC) will be the stage for the competition, which promises to raise the level of sport in the country and generate great impact in the region. The tournament has a waiting window between April 26th and November 30th.

The event represents a milestone for big wave surfing in Brazil. CBSurf, as the highest sports entity in the country, recognizes the importance of the sport and takes an important step to professionalize it and offer athletes the opportunity to compete at a high level.

“As Vice President and Sports Director, it is an immense honor for us to be able to strengthen Big Wave Surfing, rewarding and crowning our first Brazilian Big Wave Champion in the history of Brazilian surfing. CBSurf has the mission of taking care of surfing throughout Brazil, and big surfing is certainly one of the most important categories, given its history of great athletes on the world stage”, highlights Paulo Moura.

Praia do Cardoso was chosen for its unique characteristics, which make it ideal for big wave. Consistent waves, with the potential to reach up to 20 meters in height, and the region’s infrastructure, with easy access and good reception, were some of the factors that influenced the decision.

The CBSurf Big Wave Index Krown will also have a positive socioeconomic impact on the region. The expectation is that the event will bring tourists, generate income and promote local development. Furthermore, the event organization is committed to environmental management, with measures to minimize the impact of the competition on the environment.
