In 1976, Fred Hemmings and Randy Rarick founded the International Professional Surfers (IPS). The same year the IPS crowned the first World Champion surfer, Australian Peter Townend. Co-founder Hemmings was on hand to present the title trophy.
Thirty-nine years later, the IPS is now the World Surf League (WSL) and Hemmings and Townend met up to recreate the famous photo of the first World Title presentation.
In 2015 the World Surf League will crown the 40th winner of the men's World Title (39th women's). Have your say about who will win with the WSL Fantasy league.
