Wakeboarders explore frozen waters of Patagonia

The stunning Lake Argentino in southern Patagonia was the stage for the unique adventure featuring American riders Parks Bonifay and Adam Errington as well as the Argentinian duo of Cutún Martín and Tomas Karagozian. Fed by the Upsala Glacier high above, Lake Argentino is the largest freshwater lake in Argentina and home to many icebergs that formed a perfect natural playground for the intrepid athletes.




The weather in the region is characterized by freezing temperatures and winds of over 40 knots. The icebergs, some of which are up to nine times larger than the section emerging from the water, are in perpetual motion and can rotate at any time.
