Brotherly Love

Having three family members involved in any sport on a professional level is pretty much unheard of. Nick Ormerod (above) and his brothers Simon (professional bodyboarder) and Alex (photographer) have proven that nothing is impossible by excelling in their respective fields within the sport of bodyboarding for nearly a decade.

In a true display of brotherly love, the Ormerod brothers got together and shot a photo feature for You can view the results here.

2011 SIC Was Sick!

The 2011 Shark Island Challenge – a specialty event sanctioned by the International Bodyboard Association – was run and won today in near perfect two metre waves at the notorious Cronulla reef.

As we reported on Facebook and Twitter yesterday, unfortunately, Ryan Hardy (2010 Shark Island Challenge champion) was forced to withdraw from the event due to travel issues. Damian King and Nick Ormerod (above) did us proud but not enough to take the win. Those honours went to fellow Australian Dave Winchester, the 2011 Shark Island Challenge Champion.
