Be sure to check out the new Bodysurfer Club on Yahoo. Club started by Kaha Nalu. In conjunction with The Neural Surfer, we will explore the following areas: 1) the history of bodysurfing worldwide; 2) exhaustive listings of past and future contests; 3) in-depth profiles of the world's premier bodysurfers and wave spots; and 4) The Point Panic Pictorial, which will house photographs of empty waves and hydrofoiling mammals. In order to accomplish this task, we need your original input. If you have photographs that are worthy, or profiles that are well written, or you have something of value to add to the page, please e-mail The Neural Surfer at We hope to have our first profile finished this week. Thanks for your patience. Below are some profiles, but we need more. Also included are the results from the latest 1996 bodysurfing contests at Carlsbad.
