Nicolas Capdeville: the veteran of European bodyboarding

French bodyboard veteran Nicolas Capdeville is making a comeback in the IBA World Tour at Praia Grande, Portugal.

Capdeville collected two world bodyboarding titles at the ISA World Surfing Games in 1992 and 2002.

So, ten years later, he is back on the professional circuit, making an appearance at the Sintra Portugal Pro.

The rider from Mimizan, in Landes, also won one GOB (Global Organisation of Bodyboarders) title in 2003, two European bodyboarding titles in 1993 and 2002, and six national French titles.

Nicolas Capdeville is considered the best bodyboarder in France ever. After a long career in the waves, he decided to dedicate his time to Tribord, a water sports brand.

In 1999, Nicolas Capdeville opened a surf and bodyboard school.

Now, the iconic rider who rode for Morey Boogie in Europe is back in shape and progressed in the 2012 Sintra Portugal Pro Trials in Praia Grande.
