Understanding this bodyboard's technology
2.4lb Polyethylene PE
Mid-heavy-weight extruded foam compressed at 2.4lb offering a sturdy intermediate bodyboard. This foam is not waterproof and is ideal in cold climates.
This rail setup leaves less of your rail in the water and offers the rider less contact with the water and therefore better drive and speed throughout all conditions.
Graduated channels are a slow rise channel which redirect waterflow to create lift and allow the rider a better grip on the wave.
HDPE is a high density plastic. This plastic is hard wearing and very stiff. Whilst it will perform as per the norm, it is more prone to creasing when under heavy stress as for its high density properties.
IXLPE is physically crosslinked polyethylene foam and is a very smooth skin decking. Soft in appearance and feeling.
Bat tail bodyboards are less curved in their profile, have a much wider finish and employ a‘W’looking tail. The overall idea of this concept is to provide more surface area to land on, more release through the tail shape and more speed through the emphasised hull. These tails can be a lot harder to control however, as for the limited hull area.
Manufacturing Country: China
Most, if not all, entry level bodyboards come out of China. Mass produced for Summer, these bodyboards are made for beginner level bodyboarding in the shore.
