Body Boarding is a fun and exhilarating form of surfing that is less technically challenging than stand up surfing. We could say it's the perfect solution for wannabe surfers in Cornwall with no balance, but it is in fact a wave sport in its own right.
When you head out into the open sea with your bodyboard and set of fins, it's the surf versus you in a neoprene suit! The positioning of your body on the wave allows you to get closer to the power of the wave and enjoy the thrill of wave riding.
A body board is a lot shorter than a traditional surf board, making it easier to control in the water. As the waves approach, you pull your upper body onto the board and paddle with your fins - the result is a noisy, foaming high speed ride as you sweep in towards the shore. With no standing up (and less falling off) you can maximise your time just riding the waves.
The instructors and equipment for this activity are mobile in and around the Newquay area, so you can be assured of learning in the most suitable surfing conditions. IntotheBlue offers a selection of surfing related activities, please see our main
