Joana Schenker

Our next rider comes from an area that has some of the best surfing waves in Portugal, most say she is the Queen of Portuguese bodyboarding and is certainly up there in terms of the media exposure she attracts for Portuguese sport and bodyboarding in general. A complete professional who is idolised by many, a perfect role model and ambassador for Portugal. We are lucky enough to have her, as well as Ben Player joining us in the UK for a coaching weekend at The Wave in Bristol in April, just click on the first picture of her to book your spot. "Hi my name is Joana Schenker, I'm 32 and I´m from south Portugal, a little town called Sagres. I still live there today! I started bodyboarding in 200

Juliana Freitas

Our next rider is from a landlocked city in West central Brazil. The regions earliest settlers came in search of Gold but as this was exploited cattle ranching became the dominant industry.

It's such sad news that the Wavehouse in our next riders home town has shut. I certainly had an epic time when I had a go all those years ago. There are so many epic breaks on offer and the strong club scene including the clinics currently being run with massive popularity. It continues to produce underground hardcore spongers capable of taking it to the next level, could that opportunity to fully expose the talent be when the APB rolls into town at some point this year....... "Hi my name is Jared Visick, I am 26 and I am from Durban, South Africa, I have been in and out of Durban since I left school, but I’ve been back solidly for about a year now. I have been bodyboarding since before I ca

Veronika Janeckova

Our next rider was born in a land locked country in the Eastern part of Central Europe. It is bordered by Poland to the north, Ukraine to the East, Hungary to the South, Austria to the South West and Cheque Republic to the Northwest. It is a land of mountains and castles and not typically the sort of place to produce a Bodyboarder 😎 but has produced these famous peoples either parents or grand parents, Angelona Jolie, Audrey Hepburn, Andy Warhol, Paul Newman, Jon Bon Jovi and Ivan Reitman. "Hi my name is Veronika Janeckova I am 33 and I was born and raised in Slovakia, a small country in central Europe. I left my home country when I was 19 and lived in London, UK for 10 years.
