    Skim boards are pretty tight, too. What's really awesome is body boarding on waves that one would typically full on surf.


    A required skill too if you are a tradition style longboarder and don;t wear a leash - sooner or later that board is going to get away from you and body surf saves a lot of swimming strokes

    Alright step one, you aren't allowed to call them boogie boards. They are called body boards icon_razz.gif

    I used to do that and surfing. Where I lived it was easier to body board since the only time there are waves is usually leading up to a storm, and then its like a washing machine and bad surf.

    It was a lot of fun, it can be pretty cardio intensive but fins are must.

    I'm sorry, I thought you had a penis. When you're done taking off your feather boa, you can trash your BOOGIE board and buy a surf board.

    Fusion of your vertebrae will not prevent you from standing up on a board. Surfing isn't something that you can really get the hang of in even a month, much less a few times. Just keep at it; you'll get it. Until then, you're not "rocking" anything on a boogie board.

    OK guys I meant to say body board...just a brain freeze.
    I've got fins & have lost a few along the way & the newest ones float.
    When I was 14 I made some round pizza boards & also made a teardrop shaped skim board. I use to ride thim into the waves.

    Woa, easy there brah. There is no need to incite that kind of loathe just cause someone rides a different board style.

    Just ride whatever you are happy with. Frankly it is sad to see people out on weak crumbly 2 foot days on their potato chip. On a day like that Bodyboard may mean the difference between stay on shore or out in the line up.

    Anyday out in the surf is better than staying on dry land bitching about it.

    I have never known any boogie boarder that follows wave etiquette. And so when they do that, I will run them over.

    Not to mention I just ride a longboard when the waves are shitty like that.

    Part of the reason is it's easy to pick up - any average joe can do it. And around holidays at my local break there's plenty of them - if one gets in your way, educate them. Most of these ppl can't get tot he REAL lineup on the outside anyway.

    Afterall it is the fault of the individual riding the board - you bet if some douche don't follow surf rule 101 on a bodyboard he won't follow it on ANY board.

    Do I get annoyed when someone on a boogie snakes or drops in on me? Of course I do, but I've had far worse from learners on a minimal - just yesterday I got dropped in on and got a slight concussion to the side of my head.

    Waves where I am are mostly shore breaks so bodyboard is the way to go for me. I can surf but the point breaks n beaches lack any sorta power.
