In the late 80′s Justin Steward from Cronulla best known as Teethy was one of Wingnuts grommet mates growing up tough on the streets around the Nulla and coping it from the older bodyboarders with regular grom tortures. Unfazed Teethy was a competent bodyboarder both prone and dropknee winning his share of comps and a regular out the Island in the glory days of the early 90′s.

Getting invited to the SIC is one of the sports top honors. Next to Pipeline in Hawaii the Island comp is regarded by Bodyboarders as the ultimate event with a long waiting period and waves that can produce epic conditions. Below  Aussie Dave Ballard was a standout during his Island heats from Day 1 and free surf sessions throughout the event history and is still competing today. Photo Stroh

Small wave venue contests were part of the bodyboard contest scene in the early days. The Manly Beach venue  attracted a large spectator base however it rarely produced the quality waves that bodyboarders need to perform. The photo below of Brazillian Marcello and Hawaiian Ben Severson was a typical scene on contest day with wave priority a major winning factor. Here the pair battle over a 1 foot wave. Photo Stroh
