Until 2011, Bodyboarding was part of the the ISA Surfing games, the surfers and bodyboarders of every country were both competing on the same country and waves. The games used to be launched every two years.
I was part of the French Team for the first time in 2006 in California (USA), then in 2008 in Portugal (EUROPE).
The ISA World Bodyboard Championship (separated from the Surf) was first held in the Canary Islands (SPAIN) in 2011. I was part of the French Team and we got the National Team World Title and I personally got a Silver Medal in Open Men and another in DropKnee.
