Jeff Hubbard is the 2012 IBA World Tour bodyboarder champion from Kauai, Hawaii.[1][2] His brother David also won a bodyboarding world title: the 2009 IBA Drop Knee World Tour. Jeff won his first IBA World Title in 2006 and the second in 2009.

His style is characterized by aerial tricks, and recognized by constantly pushing the boundaries of the sport. His split leg invert and looped 360 airs are a kind of trademark, and he is also regarded as one of the few bodyboarders to ever land an aerial 720. He is a four time winner of the IBA Pipeline Pro bodyboarding contest in 2002, 2006, 2011 and 2012.[3]
