HISTORY

Posted: December 18, 2011 at 5:50 pm

When bodyboarding first began to explode worldwide some of the first competitors rode standup. Throughout the 80′s standup bodyboarding flourished and Danny Kim from the Westside of Oahu was the man. By the 90′s the stand-up crew were disappearing and nobody stood-up in heats anymore. Still guys like Danny, Chris Won and Cavin Yap  kept the tradition alive by free-surfing and pulling moves like the surfboard crew were pulling. This pic of Danny Kim was taken in Jan ’93 at Beach Park by Stroh
