The sport was created by Tom Morey in 1971 and involves riding a bodyboard on a wave which is carrying the rider towards the shore. Mike Stewart is considered the champion of the sport, with 9 world titles. Today the sport includes a professional world tour as well as sponsored athletes who's sole purpose is to ride waves once thought impossible to master.
