In the early 1990s, the sport of bodyboarding was a huge commercial success.

There were many brands, spectacular performers and TV stations, like ESPN, interested in broadcasting the events.

The 1990 Morey Boogie Pipeline Championship, held at Banzai Pipeline, was one of them. Watch how Jay Reale, Betty Depolito, and Mike Chamberlin dissect the competition.
