body surfing tournament huh? They musta been goin for the gold medal in the tournament of most variety of tournaments or smth, lol.. Seriously, never heard of such a competition, but not surprised really. As to the 'flip', they must use the term loosely, bc what i saw looked more like a somersault

He just kind of rolled forward with the wave,legs sprawled apart, nothing too special there.
Now if he had shot out from the front of the wave and done a front flip and then dived back into the water,well that would have been special. :D

Bodysurfing is pretty difficult to do especially on that small of a wave. Remember, the First of almost every stunt pales in comparison to how it's done after being perfected. It'll be interesting to see where this goes from here especially on bigger waves!
