The Pipeline Pro Hawaii has a 13-day waiting period and kicks off on February 24, on the North Shore of Oahu.

"Roots," the first-ever Portuguese bodyboarding movie, has been digitized and released on demand by Boa Onda Productions.
The movie was originally released on VHS tape in 2001 via Vert Magazine, and quickly became a hit among the Portuguese bodyboarding community.
"Roots" features three years of rides and was shot in Chile, Hawaii, Mexico, Mozambique, Portugal, and South Africa. You'll predominantly see prone riding, but there's still a few drop-knee and stand-up stunts.

The 2019 Association of Professional Bodyboarders (APB) World Tour released its 2019 showreel.
The professional bodyboarding organization launched a promo video featuring footage from Pipeline, Teahupoo, Shark Island, Arica, Fronton, Nazaré, and Itacoatiara. But will these idyllic breaks be included in the 2019 schedule?
"The video is a showreel for the APB and not a World Tour launch video," Alex León, CEO of the APB, told SurferToday. Nonetheless, the World Tour will start in Pipeline, Hawaii, on February 24, 2019.
