If you want to ride once in awhile for fun, you may want a simpler model. Boogie boards usually have a specific weight and height limit. The heavier you are, the wider it should be. Bodyboard cores are typically made out of one of two types of foam: polyethylene PE or polypropylene PP. PE is heavier and more flexible than PP and provides the best performance in cold waters.
PP cores are better for warm waters with their strong, lightweight construction. Most boogie boards come with either a crescent or bat tail shape, and each affects how the board rides. The user-friendly arc of the crescent tail hugs your waist curves and allows more of your body to enter the water. A leash is a strap or length of cord that connects from your wrist or ankle to the boogie board.
The leash allows you to keep your board within reach, especially when you fall or enter a current. If a leash is important to you, make sure your board comes with a leash or has a leash attachment. The deck refers to the top of the board, or the surface you ride on.
Some decks feature contours, indentations that follow the contours of your body for added comfort. Losing fins in the ocean can become an expensive loss, so it pays to keep them tethered. Channels are grooves that typically run along the bottom of a boogie board to distribute weight over the water. In this episode we were lucky enough to spend time with the great James Kenelm Clarke.
