Bodysurfing is the original form of riding a wave and Mike Stewart is one of the most respected wave riders in the surfing fraternity. He has perfected the art of bodysurfing which is known as the most difficult way of riding a wave. This year Mike did a trip with us to make this clip which touches on why Mike strips everything back and dives into the ocean with just a pair of fins which Mike see’s as the ultimate freedom from the constraints of everyday life. Mike’s bodysurfed Pipe, Teahupoo, The Wedge and has lead the pack alongside Mark Cunningham for the last thirty years in this unique way of wave riding. Mike holds 13 bodysurf titles and at fifty two is still pushing the limits of what can be done riding a wave. Check out the clip and delve deeper into what the bodysurf experience is all about.
