Bodyboarding is a surface water sport in which the surfer rides a bodyboard on the crest and face of a wave which is carrying the surfer towards the shore.
Bodyboarding is also referred to as Boogieboarding. The average bodyboard consists of a short, rectangular piece of hydrodynamic foam, sometimes containing a short graphite rod within the core called a stringer.
Bodyboarders typically use swim fins for additional propulsion and control while riding a wave. The sport of Bodyboarding has grown massively over the years, with riders who are willing to ride massive waves without fear of the consequences.
