In the early 90′s Shark Island was probaly the second most photographed bodyboard wave in the world next to Pipeline in Hawaii. Not surprising that someone would cash in its noteriety and pump out some Shark Island Clothing with Perce there mainman. Photo Stroh

Foster bodyboarder Troy Kneeves made a name for himself throughout the 90′s with his explosive moves and formidable contest repetoire in the local Pro Am events. This shot is typical of Troys dynamic arial talent. Photo Stroh

This shot of young Mason lip floating the foam at Lighthouse Beach at Port MacQuarie was when the naturally skilled dropknee rider was just beginning to make a name for himself around ’98 for his explosive talent. The passionate and gifted Mason continues to support and promote Dropknee whenever the opportunity arises. Photo Stroh

When this unusual shot was snapped back in the early 2000′s young rippers Mitch Hall, Johno Bruce, Mitch Rawlins and  Nelson Ross were the future stars of Aussie and World bodyboarding. These kids looked certain to be the next generation monopolising the pro tour circuit and possible future world champion contenders. A decade later surprisingly out of the four only Mitch Rawlins has made a major impact  in the sport. Hall and Nelson lost interest while Johno formed a band.Photo MC.

From the Big Island of Hawaii the cool and casual Skipper had one of the cleanest and most natural styles in the sport. Skip’s riding was hailed as close to perfect by many drooling grommets throughout the latter half of the 90′s. A standout in all conditions the Hawaiian charger excelled best when things got heavier. Its almost surprising that the gifted bodyboarder who dominates many star studded sessions at the Worlds most photographed reef  has yet to capture a Pipe Title. This shot relaxed in the danger Zone at Shark Island early 2000′s. Photo CSP

From West Oz ,Chad first began making a name for himself through Chris White’s Tension videos in the late 90′s. Since those days of madness and slapstick humour Chad has stepped up to another level. The West Oz prankster began charging some of the most mutant and life threatening outer reefs on this planet. Scoring some of the biggest waves ever ridden by  bodyboarders. The pic below taken at Pipe in early 2000′s caught Chad mid flight a second or two before he copped a brutal pounding resulting in a stuffed back and months of recuperation.Photo Stroh
