Bodyboard Mechanics

Buying a bodyboard for the first time can be quite daunting so here is a run down on what it's all about - 

 

Size - The size is in inches (38',40',42.25'). For the right board size for you simply measure the distance from the bottom of your chin to the top of your kneecap. You can give or take an inch or two but this is the best way to size up a board. If you are heavy set (in excess of 16st) you may want to add an extra inch as well

 

Core - Core's come in multitudes of varieties. Some are stiff. Some are flexible. It really is down to personal preference, but here is some guide lines to what we stock.

PE - Flexible, works great in colder waters

PP - Stiffer, works great in warmer waters

3D - Layered core that is in the middle of PE and PP flexiblity

NRG - Extra reflex qualities, works great in colder waters

Kinetic - Extra reflex qualities, works great in warmer waters

Paradox - Extra memory for high impact riding allowing the board to return to its original shape under pressure

Freedom 6 - Paradox Core with extra density and respose, works great in warmer waters

Parabolic - PP Core throughout the central area of the board with PE running along the edges. Stiff and flexible together

 

Tail - You can pretty much count on finding only two varieties of tail on the market nowadays and here is what they do

Bat Tail - For prone riding (laying on your belly). A hybrid of a crescent and a round tail (now defunct). The extra surface area allows for more speed and easier to complete moves like spins. Great for beginners or 'prone-only's'

Crescent Tail - For versatile riding (prone and drop knee) This is the standard tail which is great for all types of riding

 

Mesh - A layer of nylon nesh in the core that adds extra strength and durability, prolonging your boards life

 

Stringers - Nylon or Carbon rods that run through the core of the board adding extra strength and durability, prolonging your boards life. Can come in a variety of single stringers (straight down the middle), double stringers (one in each half) or triple stringers (one down the middle and one in each half)

 

Channels - These are the grooves on the tail end of the slick (bottom) of the board. they guide the flow of water underneath your board and offer extra speed and control when riding barelling waves

 

Nose Bulbs -  Raised areas on the corners of the nose that guide proper hand placement and offer extra grip whilst riding 

 

Deck Contours - Grooves upon the deck (top) of the board that guide proper body placement and offer extra grip whilst riding

 

Deck - The softer top of the board that you lay on. Colours are personal preferences

 

Slick - The harder bottom of the board that connects with the water. Colours are personal preferences

 

Rails - The pointed edges that run along the edge of each side of the board. These allow you to turn. Colours are personal preferences

 

Hope this helps when purchasing a bodyboard
