Bodyboarding requires specific equipment for its riders. It’s very important to be well equipped for your session. One of the main characteristics in the choice of a bodyboard is the size. It's a key element on which you have to pay specific attention as the size of your bodyboard will directly impact your ride on the wave.
Usually, the size of a bodyboard is defined by your size. For the most suitable bodyboard, it is necessary to take into account your height and weight. In addition to your measurements, your level in bodyboarding must also be included in your choice. Indeed, eveything depends on the use of the board.
For an expert rider who knows how to anticipate wave movement, choose a smaller board that fits perfectly with its bodyboarding style. In search of performance and speed, this type of board will anwser your need for maneuverability. On the contrary, for a beginner who will need more lift, you will have to choose a larger bodyboard. Despite lesser maneuverability, this size of bodyboard has the advantage of guaranteeing an ideal buoyancy to jump into the water and take waves easily.
