Marcos Monteiro at Punta de Lobos 2011
Brazilian Marcos Monteiro won the Quiksilver Ceremonial Punta de Lobos 2011 in 30-36 foot waves, with the occasional 40-footer. Light offshore winds prevailed for most of the day, and thousands lined the cliffs to cheer on the competitors. Marcos seemed to be everywhere, picking off great waves in all of his heats. This wasn’t his first time competing in this contest, and it showed!
