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).

The GripBoard offers a faster and more maneuverable ride than conventional body boards. The GripBoard is a molded, foam-injected board with a patented "grip" that makes turning the board simple (no leaning over the board and onto the rails).
The molded fins on the bottom of the GripBoard create wave compression to push the board forward with power and control.
The shaped nose of the GripBoard lets you duck-dive back through the wave at the end of your ride and easily go through the waves on your way back out. The result is a smoother, faster ride that can cut in any direction on any wave.
