Exclusively Bodyboarding has announced the Dream Team 09/10, an Australian team with International presence. They are:
ALEX BUNTING / the night cat and Sydney style lord - from new technical surfing with a twist, to huge Ship Sterns, or making out Supers. Bunts, is a great bodyboarder.
BRAD HUGHES / boundary breaker - simply the best big wave Bodyboarder in the world right now, Brad’s control to these sized waves is matched as if the waves were your 3 foot local beachy.
LILLY POLLARD / lovely lady - arguably the best Female Bodyboarder in the world, big waves, heavy hits, and an amazing competition record.
RYAN HARDY / the precision Bodyboarder - not much more can be said about Ryan just that he is the pinnacle of perfect wave riding of this decade.
THOMAS SMITH / Gold Coast technician – raw power, unique, aggressive, skill, Tom’s repertoire of moves is second to none due to QLD technical style with his own explosive flavour.
