WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT?
It’s simple. Just buy well. Or hire a board instead.
When you buy quality body boards from a surf shop or quality retailer you’ll catch more waves. You’ll have a better time. And you’ll be able to use it year after year after year. If you hire a board you’ll get to enjoy a great experience and not even have the hassle of taking it home afterwards.
Spending just £10 on a body board is like tearing up a tenner in the shower. What a waste.
It’s much better to buy wisely and buy once. A good body board will have you ripping up the waves for years!
HOW TO BUY A GOOD BODYBOARD
Talk to your local surf shop. They have boards to last and can give you advice on the best board for you and your kids.
Think about a wooden belly board. They look cool, go faster and will last for many, many summers. Check out
http://www.dickpearce.com who supply handcrafted wooden belly boards that are made in Cornwall. So you can support a local business as well as surf the best waves.
