History of Bodyboard.

Mensaje  Alejandro el Dom Dic 13, 2009 9:25 pm


The bodyboarding has its origins in the earliest form of sliding on a wave, apart from the bodysurfing. Diaries, 1778 described as men in Hawaii riding the waves on boards such Paipa.
However, the modern bodyboard sport and his condition is owed to Tom Morey, who in 1971 began to market their Boogie boards using materials more comfortable and durable than the traditional Hawaiian PAIPO tables (wooden).

This new way of riding the waves quickly became popular, mainly due to their lower initial learning curve and the lowest price tables on the surf.
A mid-80s began to emerge a series bodyboarders who write the history of the sport by their techniques and innovations. Names like Mike Stewart, Pat Caldwell, Keith Sasaki and Ben Severson, developed the sport and will take you beyond mere slip of a wave.
The style was most conspicuous in the bodyboarding slippage drawn large and spacious, and the maneuvers were repeated over 360 and the "Roll". Later in the 90s, there was another revolution in the sport. Bodyboarders as Guilherme Tamega, Michael Eppelstun or Ben Holland led the acrobatics or maneuvers previously developed to its highest radicals. Even to develop new maneuvers unthinkable until then, as Michael's Air Roll Spin Eppelstun.
Today, the global picture of the bodyboard is represented by names such as Hawaiian Mike Stewart (pioneer of the sport that continues to be among the elite), Jeff Hubbard (bodyboarder revolutionary for its ease and spectacular aerial maneuvers), Spencer Skipper ( recognized as a worthy successor to Stewart for his elegant style sliding).
Also noteworthy because of his youth, radicalism and his love for the monstrous waves of Australian reef, a large group of young Australians made up names like Ryan Hardy, Mitch Rawlins, Dave Winchester, Brendan Newton.
