Belly boarders catch a wave as they take part in the first heat of the annual World Belly Boarding Championships at Chapel Porth in Cornwall, England. Over a hundred surfers of all ages and all on traditional wooden belly boards, gathered for the annual charity event organized for the National Trust and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). The event was started in 2002 as a celebration of how surfing began in Britain more than a century ago.
