Backdating to Ancient Polynesia, the origins of Bodyboards can be traced to the Alaia Surfboard.
Bodyboarding originates from Indigenous Polynesians partaking in the ancient form of riding waves on your belly or knees. Bodyboarding, also known as Boogie Boards, became popularised in Western Culture as a competitive and recreational Water Sport. ‘Boogie Boarding’ was introduced by Tom Morey at the crest of the 1970s and remains a popular form of full body muscle strengthening activity today.

- The right bodyboard size depends on your height, weight, and skill level. As a general guideline, the board should reach between your navel and your knees when standing next to it. Consult a size chart provided by the manufacturer for more accurate recommendations.
Should I consider the tail shape of the bodyboard?Yes, the tail shape affects the board's performance. Crescent tails are versatile and suitable for all skill levels, while bat tails provide increased control and maneuverability. Channels or grooves on the tail can enhance speed and control as well.
Are bodyboard leashes necessary?Yes, bodyboard leashes are essential for safety. They prevent the board from getting lost in the waves and help keep it close to you. Make sure the leash is securely attached to your wrist or arm.
Can I use a bodyboard in all wave conditions?Bodyboards can be used in various wave conditions, from small and mellow waves to larger, more powerful waves. However, certain bodyboards may perform better in specific wave types, so consider the conditions you'll be riding in.
