The voting has begun. The world's best African bodyboarders will upload their most impressive videos. The fifth stage of the 2015 Free Surf Bodyboarding (FSB) World Tour is underway. Fans and judges decide who's victorious.

Ten riders are lined up: Andre Botha, Michael Ostler, Storm Prestwich, Wilder Schultz, Allan Horton, Jarret Johnson, James Jones, Terence Pieters, Ethan Nel and Garryd Ensor-Smith. Only one will claim the African free riding crown.

The continent is home to a dizzying array of outstanding waves and surely some tightly guarded secret spots that only the most local bodyboarders will know. Will the right-hand point breaks of Morocco prevail? Can the fast South African rollers win it all?

FSB Africa is the penultimate event of the inaugural season. The last regional stage of the year will he held in South America. The overall champion will then be declared.

Alex Uranga (Europe), Jase Finlay (Australia/Pacific), Lewy Finnegan (Australian/Indian), and Jeff Hubbard (North America) have won the first four events. Who's ready for the African title?
