When Jack Lindholm ventured over to the Northshore and paddled out at Pipe , he would never have guessed just how much impact he would have on the sport worldwide.  As word got out about this guy riding a Boogie on his knees and charging  it wasn’t long before kids all around the globe began buying Boogies and coping  his feats in their local shorebreaks. Photographers like Jeff Divine who took the shot of Jack below came up with the photographic proof and the rest is history.
