WHAT ARE BODYBOARDS?
Bodyboards are a shorter, more stable and slightly less responsive type of surfboard. A bodyboarder lays on the bodyboard rather than standing, as with a surfboard. Knee boards are another version, designed for kneeling, while stand up paddle boards have also become very popular. Bodyboarding is a great introduction to catching waves, and can include swim fins, a bicep leash, rash vest and sun protection for maximum enjoyment.
Bodyboards can easily catch smaller waves or rolling breakers closer to shore, making bodyboarding a fun pastime for anyone. It won't be long before you are attempting drop-knee and kneeling moves, and catching some impressive barrels. Whether you are looking for a bat tail board, stealth board, boogie board, stand up board or soft surf board, we have what you are looking for at Anaconda, all at unbeatable prices.
WHAT ARE BODYBOARDS MADE OF?
Bodyboards are made out of one or more types of plastic, or, in some cheaper versions, out of lightweight plastic foam. Higher quality bodyboards may still have a foam core but also have a harder plastic bottom, called a slick, plus a deck, and rails made of softer foam. The deck is the top of the board, and the rails are the sides. The front of the board is the nose, and the back is called the tail. In many boards, one, two, or three carbon or graphite rods will run inside the board, down its length. These rods, called stringers, provide strength and spring to the board.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD I KNOW ABOUT BODYBOARDS?
Some people prefer to have to have a leash attached to their bodyboard. Without a leash, it is easier to lose the board after falling off, especially if you are some distance out to sea or the waves and/or current are strong. Leashes can either attach to the rider's wrist or upper arm. Some boards come with a leash already attached, but they can also be bought separately as an accessory.
DOES ANACONDA SELL OTHER BOARDS APART FROM BODYBOARDS?
Yes, at Anaconda you can find a wide range of water sports equipment, and this includes surfboards and paddle boards as well as bodyboards, in many different types and sizes suitable for beginners as well as experienced riders.
