USA BodySufing commenced operations in 2022 and hosted contests in Huntington Beach in February, and San Clemente in April. Hawaiian bodysurfers sponsored by Da Fin Hawaii have dominated the Men Open division in the first two contests and maintain the top five spots in the series rankings. Looking forward beyond the upcoming contest in June at Oceanside Harbor, USA BodySurfing is planning to sanction several more contests. All sanctioned events will include electronic scoring on STACT APP, four-person heats, and ISA certified judges.
