Carlos Burle at Pico Alto 2010
Here’s Brazilian charger Carlos Burle on a bomb at Pico Alto. The Billabong Pico Alto Invitacional contest was held on August 24th, 2010. The waves peaked in the 40-45 foot range just in time for the semi-finals and finals. Though, the contest is won by riding the “biggest” waves, the highlight of this contest was watching the competitors carve up the huge walls that Pico Alto offered up, pushing the limits of performance surfing with a big wave gun!
