Jeff Hubbard

Jeff Hubbard - Pipeline 2012

               His style is characterized by aerial tricks, and recognized by constantly pushing the boundaries of the sport. His split leg invert and looped 360 airs are a kind of trademark, and he is also regarded as one of the few bodyboarders to ever land an aerial 720. He is a four  time winner of the IBA Pipeline Pro bodyboarding contest in 2002, 2006, 2011and 2012 . He is also 2 times World Champion (2006 & 2009 ). To me he is a legend already and I do appreciate watch him bodyboarding .

Uri Valadao

Bahiano Voador - Uri Valadao 

           The 2008 World Champion Uri Valadao is always among the top 10 world ranking , year after year . Eazy going personality , always friendly with everyone . I use his  shaping body board  to surf , the best balance to actions and tube ride  I found until now . It was very funny the first time I met him in 2011 , he spoke to me using a Bahia slang "O meu Rei "( hey My King ") , I am from the south Brazil so it sounds so funny to me ,especially the way he talks  . Well here are the photos  , enjoy it , Tchau .

             Definitely one of the best body boarders I know . Like most of the other Brazilians in the World tour , Magno is humble and simple . Right now he got a new sponsor  which can help him  traveling around the World to record his new movie . Boa Sorte Magno nessa nova jornada .

A good day at Pipeline

The first swell


             This Thursday was the first good swell around Omaezaki , rainy day , strong current and good waves was the scene of the day . Not so many people in the water , hard to keep in position to ride a wave . I hope that other good swells hit the Omaezaki coast this year . Aloha .
