A total of 45 bodyboarders have been shortlisted for the American leg of the 2015 Free Surf Bodyboarding (FSB) World Tour.

Jeff Hubbard, Dave Hubbard, Tanner McDaniel, Iain Campbell, Jacob Romero, Kainoa McGee, Jared Houston, Mike Stewart, and Baby Quiñones are some of the names in the shortlist.

Bodyboarders of the American continent will kick off their ocean adventures on the 10th of February, 2015. Just like in Europe, fans will be able to select the riders they want to see competing in the event.

Later, the chosen ones will be filming their rides so that fans cast their votes on the best performances. FSB North America includes bodyboarders from Hawaii, the United States, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean.

The organization has listed some of the most popular riders on the continent. If your favourite rider isn't included in the shortlist, fans may suggest his or her name in the event by including it in the official FSB website.

Fifteen bodyboarders will make the final American cut.
