BILLABONG ODYSSEY CHILE EXPEDITION

GENERAL INFO
The latest Billabong Odyssey Expedition was held in Chile, home to several known big waves. A base was set to explore outer reefs in the area.

Participants towed into some giant waves, and paddle surfed a very hollow reef barrel. In case you’re not familiar, the Odyssey Chile Expedition took place in a region where the weather is generally mild and warm with zero rain, but fairly frequent morning fog. Due to the Humboldt current, the water stays cool (low 60s). The wetsuits used were 4/3’s and a 5/4’s with hood for the extended am tow chill. Plus booties/gloves/beanies, etc.
All equipment for the expedition is 100% mobile.
