To its legions of followers, bodyboarding is quite simply the most intense watersport on the planet. Wherever you find waves that are too heavy for even the most gung-ho of surfers, there you’ll find the boogers, screaming into dredging pits and scoring impossibly deep barrels. “Born to Boogie: Legends of Bodyboarding” tells the story of this incredible sport from 1971 to the present day. The pioneers, the champions and the underground chargers are all profiled, among them Tom Morey, Pat Caldwell, Ben Severson, Jay Reale, Mike Stewart, Michael ‘Eppo’ Eppelstun, Guilherme Tamega, Andre Botha, Ryan Hardy, Damian King, Ben Player, Jeff Hubbard, Mitch Rawlins and Pierre Louis Costes. Written by respected bodyboard journalist Owen Pye, Born to Boogie tells the tale of how the sport was created, how it developed, flourished, faltered and fought back to become one of the most exciting extreme sports in the world today. Filled with incredible stories spanning four decades and packed with iconic images, Born to Boogie is a book that every bodyboarder will want to check out.
