Shark Island Challenge: is Jason Finlay going for it?

The 2014 Shark Island Challenge will have a waiting period of six months.

The 18th edition of the Shark Island Challenge will be surfed in the best two days of swell over the winter months, in Australia.

The event is one of the most infamous bodyboarding competitions in the world and will get underway between May and October 2014, only 100 meters from Cronulla Point, in southern Sydney.

Pierre-Louis Costes has claimed the La Salie Pro Bodyboarding Festival 2014, in France.

The first stage of the European Tour of Bodyboard (ETB) 2014 was held in small wave conditions. Nevertheless, it was pretty contestable, with sunny skies and favorable winds.

Despite living in Portugal, the former world bodyboarding champion was playing in home waters and had a cheering support from the fans in the beach.

The first event of the newly formed Australian Bodyboarding Association (ABA) 2014 Pro Tour was greeted at first light with clean 1-2ft waves.

Throughout the day, the swell would increase to a considerable 3-4ft, whilst maintaining the favourable southwesterly winds. The 2014 NMD Dbah Pro was held in conjunction with the Queensland Bodyboarding State Titles.
