HISTORY

Posted: June 1, 2012 at 2:16 pm

When Michael “Eppo” Eppelstun came onto the bodyboard scene in the late 80′s it would be only a few short years before he would revolutionise the sport with a new gymnastic style. Eppo busted big and it was his radical approach and determination to make a name for himself in the sport that drove him to invent 3 new moves in the space of a few months. At the time kids everywhere copied Eppo and nothing much has changed since. From  his huge airs to his ARS and backflip Eppo laid down the format that every bodyboarder now copies.
