Bodyboarding is a young sport. The first world titles were awarded in the 1982 and, believe or not, American mainlanders have never won a single one.
The first ever bodyboarding competitions were held in the late 1970s, a few years after Tom Morey introduced the bodyboard to the water sports community.
However, the first stand-alone world championship was only held in 1982, at Pipeline, where Daniel "The Boogieman" Kaimi made sure to shine with a casual and stylish riding approach.

Joana Schenker claimed her fourth consecutive Miss Activo Cup title, in the waves of Costa Nova, Portugal.
Despite the strong northern winds that made paddling and riding hard for the athletes in the final, the three-time European bodyboarding champion was able to overcome Teresa Almeida with the best two-wave score of the event - 15.50 points.
"I'm very happy because it was my goal. It's a tasty victory in the European Tour because it is always important to win the first round. This is my fourth win in Costa Nova for the European Tour, and in fact, when I come here, I already feel pressure," explained Joana Schenker.
