The best big wave surfers of all time


Big wave surfing is the ultimate celebration of extreme surfing. Challenging deadly waves in harsh weather and ocean conditions takes a very serious approach.

Big wave surfers are not interested in performance. Forget perfect cutbacks, stunning floaters or breathless aerial antics. The profile of a big wave rider is the result of several unparalleled personal characteristics.

Fear is always present in a 50-foot wave. Fear is the best way of managing the risk of paddling for a huge wave face, which doesn't tell you what is going to happen and how it is going to break.

The best bodyboarding tricks in the world


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.
