About Hubbard: Hubbard is the 2006 IBA World Champion from Kauai, Hawaii. His style is characterized by crazy 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, and the only rider to ever pull a rewind (air forward to front flip).
He was the winner of the IBA Pipeline Pro bodyboarding contest in 2003 and 2007.
