Jeff Hubbard is the 2012 IBA World Tour bodyboarder champion from Kauai, Hawaii. 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.
Jeff's pro model board, the BZ Hubb shaped with the help of his good friend and shaper Jono Cain, is one of the most popular board along with his leash signature models. Sponsored by Viper surfing fins as of summer 2008, he is now on Churchill and developed his own Signature "HUBB Makapuu Black Fins" model.
Hubbard won the "El Fronton - The Wild Wild Wave Invitational 2010" and the "IBA Pipeline Pro 2011" reaching his third Pipe Title. With the last two high scoring waves (9.75 and 9.5 out of 10) in the last 5 minutes of the final, he dramatically jumped to the top spot after being fourth (and last) for most of the heat.
