Bodyboarding is a form of surf related watersport, where you instead typically ride the waves on your crest/belly. Some variations within the sport also involves riding on your feet or knees, however it is most common to ride the bodyboard (also known as "Boogieboard") on one's belly.
It is an excellent and fun sport to start out with as a beginner or as a child since it allows you to explore the waves in an easier way. At least to some degree.
To fully enjoy the sport as bodyboarders do, you will need swim fins as they can help add extra propulsion as well as give a more controlled feeling when riding or breaking waves. We also recommend to get a bodyboard leash to avoid losing the bodyboard when out on water.
