The 4th Annual ISA World Bodyboard Championship will be run between 8th-15th December, in Iquique, Chile.

Bodyboarding is living the worst year in the history of the sport founded by Tom Morey. After crowning a champion based on the previous year's results, the world governing body canceled the 2014 season, and even suspended its official website.

Meanwhile, the newly formed Association of Professional Bodyboarders (APB) has managed to keep the planetary circuit running with dignity, despite the absence of events in mainland USA and Australia.


Knights Beach Pro: that will hurt

The Raw Knights Beach Pro 2014 will hit South Australia, between 10th-11th May.

A stellar field is expected to roll up for one of the favorite stops on the tour including the current ratings leader Lachlan Cramsie.

Lachie has been a roll lately, and last year finished runner-up to Knights Beach local Marshall Watson, in an exciting final. Hot off a recent win at the NMD Dbah Pro, Cramsie will look to try go one better in South Australia.
