Hey, what's up? Welcome to BODYBOARDING 101! My name is Steve "Action" Jackson. I've been bodyboarding for 29 years, competed professionally in the United States, worked on the USBA (United States Bodyboarding Association) national pro/am tour and Circuito Carioca in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), and written for various bodyboarding publications.  I have, also,worked as a commentator for the APB (Association of Professional Bodyboarders), IBA (International Bodyboarding Association), ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals), WSL (World Surf League), and ISA (International Surfing Asociation).  I am, currently, an English-speaking instructor for the EBC (Escola de Bodyboard de Copacabana) bodyboard school, and an assistant instructor with the EGT (Escola Guilherme T├ómega) bodyboarding social project.
