2015 JPBA Japanese Bodyboard Tour Event 1 – Niijima Pro
19th April 2015
The Tokyo Niijima Habushiura coast on Niijima Island was the spectacular venue for the first event of the Japanese Bodyboard Association Pro Tour for 2015, the Niijima Pro.
Japanese bodyboard powerhouse Sari Ohhara said of the conditions “The waves were pretty small waves and there weren’t a lot to be picky but the set waves had a clean face and good shape.”
The women’s final fell at the same time as the low tide Sari said “The low tide made the waves a little bit faster than the high but they were also smaller. It was hard to link up combination moves to score the best points but everyone was managing a good .”
Sari took out the win in the final thanks to a big roll combination that locked in a solid score despite the other girls working hard to catch her.
Congratulations to all the girls, the next event is First weekend of June at Chiba.
