Born to Boogie

Legends of Bodyboarding


Bodyboarding is widely recognised as one of the most intense water sports on the planet. Wherever you find waves that are too heavy for even the most hardcore of surfers, there you'll find the boogers - screaming into dredging pits and scoring impossibly deep barrels. Born to Boogie: Legends of Bodyboarding is the first illustrated history of the sport and traces its evolution from 1971 to the present day. The pioneers, the champions and the underground chargers are all profiled, among them Tom Morey, Pat Caldwell, Ben Severson, Jay Reale, Mike Stewart, Michael 'Eppo' Eppelstun, Guilherme Tamega, Andre Botha, Ryan Hardy, Damian King, Ben Player, Jeff Hubbard, Mitch Rawlins and Pierre Louis Costes. Written by respected bodyboard journalist Owen Pye, Born to Boogie tells the tale of how the sport was created, how it developed, flourished, faltered and fought back to become one of the most exciting extreme sports in the world today. Filled with incredible stories spanning four decades and packed with iconic images, Born to Boogie is a must-have book for any bodyboarder.

Author, journalist and bodyboarder Owen Pye is from Cornwall, England. A regular contributor to ThreeSixty Bodyboard Magazine, he has worked as an entertainment reporter for New York Magazine, international news reporter for the Associated Press in Sydney, and local reporter for a number of newspapers in the UK. Owen's previous book The Bodyboard Travel Guide was widely praised in the international water sports press.
