    Background: HOOKIPA BAY, HAWAII, USA

    Fourteen nations competed for the world wave-jumping titles in Hawaii, and the crowds who came to watch saw some spectacular action. Wave-jumping is one of the new surfing techniques, in which individuals ride a type of sail-board through massive breakers. Australian Scott O'Connor was doing well, but came to grief and finished fourth. The skill lies in avoiding the curl on the wave which would topple the board. Another Australian Bruce Wiley glided through to second place in the slalom. But the champion was United States competitor Alex Aguera from Florida. He was in brilliant form, catapult-jumping some of the best waves of the contest, and was awarded maximum points for his final day performance.
