Bodyboarding is a water sport which consists in riding a wave with a bodyboard on the face, and curl of a wave, following the water wall towards the shore. The average bodyboard is usually half the size of a normal surfboard, but made of softer materials. For extra propulsion, bodyboarding requires fins, which also helps the rider to control the drop and also when riding the wall. It was invented in 1971, by an American surfer called Tom Morey, in Hawaii.
Bodyboarding is easier to learn than surfing as well as safer . When you take a surf lesson , the first thing you must learn is how to stand up on the surfboard, and sometimes it can take the whole lesson. When you bodyboard, all you have to do is to ride the wave, once you get the right position on the board. So if you can swim, whatever your age is, you’re welcome to take our fun lesson and learn how to bodyboard with former Brazilian Champion Fábio Aquino.
