Bob Thomas and his wife Jan back in 1975 owned one of the first Morey Kit boards complete with glue and charged Pipe Littles and Sandy Beach. In the early 80s Bob was approached by Patti Serano from Morey to run contests in Hawaii. From that day on Bob was the driving force of competitive bodyboarding in Hawaii. Bobs early events allowed Mike Stewart, Ben Severson and Kainoa to get there first taste of competition.Bob went on to run the World B/B comps at Pipeline  and was the main man behind the Global Organisation of Bodyboarding (GOB). Today Bob and Jan are still the driving force in Hawaii turning young kids into champions. Pic by Hotshots
