How to Choose Body Boards

Body boarding is a derivative of wave riding. An average board consists of a small, rectangular piece of hydrodynamic foam. The board can be shaped and adapted to different riding styles, and size of rider. Body boarding has been growing very rapidly over the last couple of decades.

Steps to choose a body board

You can borrow body boards from shops, as there is a huge variety of body boarding is available in market. If you want to buy body board you have to look closely at the body board, as those body boards are cheap may have a porous-looking surface. These tend to waterlog quickly and get heavy in the water. You have to find a board with a smooth, slick surface.

After this you have to look at the bottom of the board. You can take a slick, hard or plastic body. Check out the tail of the board. A beginner should look for a tail that curves inward and slopes downward. This is generally the most practical and functional. Ask the attendant about the different tails. The technology changes all the time.

Lay the board flat on the ground. It should sit flat, not rock back and forth or wobble. Boards that do this are usually warped from sitting in the sun or from improper shipping. You have to place the rear of the board against your belly and grab the nose, after that try to feel the board for flex. The more flex a board has, the higher performance the board will offer. However, more flexible boards also have a shorter life span.

Make sure the board you choose has no creases or cracks or gouges in the foam as this can prove harmful or may threaten the life.
