Iain Campbell’s rise to the top of the bodyboarding world has been dramatic.
In the past 12 months, the red-headed South African has gone from one of the fringe riders of the APB world tour to genuine world title threat.
He dazzled us with his acrobatics at Itacoatiara last year, he was a standout during the North Shore winter season – earning himself praise and sponsorship from none other than Guilherme Tamega – and then he stunned many by taking out the Arica Chilean Challenge in pumping conditions – defeating dual world champion Amaury Lavernhe in the process.
If “Big Red” isn’t one of your favourite bodyboarders by now then you simply aren’t paying attention.
But maybe this will change your mind, Mr Campbell tearing it up back in his home country, sampling the tasty beach breaks of Cape Town. Shot over two days by local lensman Ryan Janssens.
