Jeff Hubbard: watching the curtain close

Jeff Hubbard has been voted the 2013 King of Pipe. The bodyboard fans decided to deliver the innovative trophy to the world champion from Hawaii.

The IBA World Tour has announced that Jeff Hubbard won the 40-minute Expression Session that went down during the 2013 IBA GoPro Pipeline Challenge.

The public voting window was extended twice to break the three way deadlock between Jeff, Mike Stewart and Kainoa McGee, with just 11 votes separating them, after more than 85,000 views of the amazing heat.

The 2013 King of Pipe invited seven wave riders. Bruce Irons and Jamie O'Brien (surfing), Mike Stewart and Jeff Hubbard (bodyboarding), Kala Alexander and Kainoa McGee (SUP), and Mark Cunningham (bodysurfing).
