The revengeful spirit of Jeff Hubbard, one of the best bodyboarders of all time.

He is blonde and comes from Honolulu, Hawaii. Jeff Hubbard knows the meaning of victory and defeat for more than 20 years. He has been riding bodyboards, in small and big waves, since the 20th century.

Jeff Hubbard was born on the 21st October 21, 1975, and has collected more than 40 titles in bodyboarding contests. The aerial expert is getting younger. His first world bodyboarding title only came in 2006. Three years later, in 2009, he repeated the achievement and proved ageing has its benefits.

Last year, Jeff Hubbard lost the third world domination in the dying moments of the last stage of the IBA World Tour, at Fronton Pro, Canary Islands.


Strong solar storm reached Earth Thursday 3.8.12

Global Surf News, 8 March, A strong geomagnetic storm is racing from the Sun toward Earth, and its expected arrival on Thursday could affect power grids, airplane routes and space-based satellite navigation systems, U.S. space weather experts said. The storm, a big cloud of charged particles flung from the Sun at about 4.5 million miles per hour was spawned by a pair of solar flares, scientists said.

This is probably the strongest such event in nearly six years, and is likely more intense than a similar storm in late January, says Joseph Kunches, a space weather specialist at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This solar disturbance is a three-stage affair, or as Kunches said "We hit the trifecta."

With early momentum from his Gold Coast victory, could 2012 be the year of Taj's title?

When World Tour events finish, it usually takes me a few hours—even days, sometimes—for everything that happened to fully register. Not today though. Not when the final day of Snapper is held in 2- to 3-foot slop and everything reverts to script. But in spite of mediocre conditions, a few pivotal moments stand out.

Josh Kerr, after going 0-4 vs. Slater in quarterfinal appearances last year, finally got through to a semifinal, defeating Kelly in decisive fashion. Throughout numerous heats, Kerr showed off improved combinations, connecting maneuvers that compliment the most complete air game in the world. Kerr is a very stable, dangerous threat on Tour. Uncharacteristically, Slater came up short in their match-up, and when Kelly loses, he loses interest in the not-so-dreamy “Dream Tour.” It had to happen eventually.
