Bodyboarder: will he beat his fellow surfer?

The Surfers versus Bodyboarders battle has always been part of the wave imaginarium of both sports. Now, the dream will come true. Stand-up and prone riders will be testing their skills in the upcoming Cave Rock Challenge.

The biggest barrel, the biggest air and the gnarliest move. These titles will be at stake at South Africa's version of Pipeline, near Durban, in 2012.

The organizers want to showcase both sports and the complexity it takes to do what it's done in the water. Who takes off deeper, who get longer barrels, who's the most radical rider?

The Cave Rock Challenge 2012 will feature South Africa's Top 16 surfers against the Top 16 bodyboarders. Which sport will perform best?
