HISTORY

At waves like Pipeline bodyboarders can sit deeper and takeoff later. This extra late drop was photographed around Jan 1986. With his fingers still in contact with his board theres still a chance he can pull it off. Did he make it ,your guess is as good as mine but if he doent he’s in for a hell flogging. It was crazy moves and photos like this that proved to the surfing world that the humble bodyboard was a serious wave riding tool and not just a pool toy in the early days.
