Authenticity check: A search reveals that the phrase "regarded by many" appears in the text. Is the phrase a symptom of a dubious statement? Could a source be quoted instead? Perhaps the "many" could be identified? Might text be edited to more genuinely reflect specific facts?
Well, it´s not too hard to rephrase this, because the majority of bodyboarders world wide do think of Mike Stewart as the overall master of the sport. It´s an undeniable fact that the was the sole master of the sport for more than a decade and it was him who shaped bodyboarding into what it is today. Despite being from the old school he is always a fierce competitor whenever the surf is big and dangerous. He is one of the few "consensus" in bodyboarding today, but I do not have a source other than my own experience of 20 years of bodyboarding to state this fact. I will search for a reliable source to back it up Loudenvier 03:01, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
I have seen the man in action and gladly count myself among that "many". knoodelhed 04:04, 5 February 2006 (UTC)
