Tom Morey and Mike Stewart are the most influential names in the development of bodyboarding as popular and global board sport. When Morey cut a rectangular shape of polyethylene foam and covered it with newspaper he was inventing a new way of riding waves.
In the next four decades, a man called Mike Stewart gave a professional pulse and rhythm to the art of bodyboarding and added several new tricks, moves and maneuvers.
Modern bodyboarding has opened new frontiers on the face of the wave. Whether you're spinning in a small wave or flying high above the crest of a wedge, that's all seen as performance and progressive bodyboarding.

Surf News, 24 May, 2012 : Explore.org, the philanthropic media organization and multi-media arm of the Annenberg Foundation, has launched a special web video series, photo gallery and community web site today that chronicles the extraordinary life, work, and current struggle with paraplegia of world renowned ocean cinematographer, Mike Prickett (Hawaii).
On March 14, 2012, while filming underwater on location off the coast of an atoll in French Polynesia, Mike saw a diver below him in distress. Acting instinctively, Mike helped the diver make an emergency ascent but in the process was partially paralyzed from a severe case of the bends.

World Domination for Dummies...A superb interview with Stab Mag!
John Florence is cursed. Cursed by all the terrible possibilities that face a prodigy of his mould. Possibilities like world domination. His style is totally raw and uncoached! Can you believe it? He learnt it all on the North Shore, too, felt it out on the sand of Ehukai, then took it over to the reef at Pipe.
Is Sunny Garcia back to the "official" pro surfing world? Apparently, yes. The legendary rider from the West coast of Hawaii has showed up at the 2012 Nike Lowers Pro and spoke to the surfing community, through the microphones of the VIP area.
One year ago, Sunny Garcia got a $10,000 fine and six-month suspension for his actions during a break at the Burleigh Breaka Pro, in Australia. Sunny Garcia's son and Jeremy Flores were surfing a few waves when an incident and fight with a local rider took place.
The altercation was filmed and the Association of Surfing Professionals decided to disqualify Sunny and Flores from the event. In the following months, the Hawaiian was told that the fine could be reduced if he took anger management classes.
