Dave Winchester rides for VS Boards

It’s now official, Dave ‘Winny’ Winchester now rides for VS. Dave jumped from the NMD team to the VS team. Both brands originated from shaper Nick ‘Mez’ Mesritz. With Ryan Hardy leaving VS recently there was probably a spot to fill on the VS team and it was a good opportunity for Dave to jump from one brand to another. Shaper Dan Sivess is managing VS and we’re sure the brand and shapes for Winnys models will be niiice.

Ryan Hardy has new flippers

It comes at no surprise after the signing with Funkshen Boards, Ryan Hardy will now be sporting Limited Edition fins (same group as Nomad / Funkshen / Attica). Will the next move be a signing with Attica suits? Maybe… (would make sense for the Nomad / Funkshen / Attica / Limited Edition group anyways).

Win a BORN TO BOOGIE book with Spongercity and Orca Publications

Here’s your chance to win a signed by Mike Stewart BORN TO BOOGIE hard cover coffee table book with and Orca Publications! Thanks Orca for hooking us up with the book and this giveaway!

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.

It’s easy to participate. We have one book to giveaway, the winner will be randomly chosen among all the people who will answer the following question correctly:

Q: When Tom Morey developed the modern bodyboard in 1971, he originally wanted to name his prototype The SNAKE (which stood for ‘Side, Navel, Arm, Knee, Elbow’ – the parts of the body you used to ride it). True or False?

You can answer here in the comments below or you can answer on Facebook. You can also email us with your answer if you want or if you don’t have facebook and didn’t manage to answer below in the comments. We will randomly pick up a winner from the people who answered correctly among the correct answers on our website / facebook / email answers. Only 1 winner wins the book. We’ll send the winner the book in a padded package by post mail.
