TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

How to choose your bodyboard size?

The size of the bodyboard directly influences its stability and ease of handling. It must be suited to the size of its user. This bodyboard is designed for children weighing between 25 and 40 kg, between 120 cm and 145 cm tall, and between 6 and 12 years old.
A bodyboard that is too small will not float enough, so you will miss the waves. A bodyboard that is too big will be difficult to handle.
Refer to the size chart online or in store to help you choose.

At Radbug, we design products for 4 levels: Novice, beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

- Novices: Up to the navel, no fins, small waves less than 50 cm, propulsion by pushing your feet on the ground and riding the wave to the shore. For a first wave-riding experience (bodyboard with grips).
- Beginners: Gentle turns in waves up to 1 m, propulsion with fins. A must for learning to bodyboard.
- Intermediate: Waves up to 1.50 m, more speed, and the beginning of tricks (360°, El Rollo, etc.).
- Advanced: All types of waves, command of tricks, even aerial: ARS, 360°, tube...

Designed to be used for intended sizes and conditions: Novice / beginner level.

If this bodyboard is used in green or white waves over 50 cm and/or by children over 40 kg, it could become damaged: breakage, bending, etc. This bodyboard does not have a dense plastic slick on the bottom; it is not suitable for use where there are pebbles or shells on the shore, which could impair the glide surface. In this case, choose a bodyboard with a high-density plastic slick, like on the other bodyboards in the 100 range.

Position yourself correctly on the bodyboard

The front of the board is preformed, for good hand positioning.
Keep both hands on the front of the board as you catch a wave.
To steer left, keep your left hand forward (with hand, elbow and shoulder aligned, forearm at 90°) and drop your right hand down to the rail in the middle of the board. Align your left leg with the left rail to keep going left.
Do the opposite to go right.

Recommendations for avoiding chafing and having the best grip on your board.

You should be lying flat on the bodyboard when catching waves. Be sure to wear a long-sleeved anti-UV top or a wetsuit to avoid chafing on your arms and torso.
Apply wax (sold separately in the surfing aisle) to the top of your bodyboard, especially on the front hand position, on the sides, and under your torso, for the best grip. Do this for each session.

Directions for use with or without fins.

This bodyboard can be used with or without fins.
Without fins, the water level should be no higher than your waist. In this case, propel yourself towards the beach by pushing off from the ground as the wave or foam passes (less than 50 cm).
With fins, the water level can be above the waist. Kick energetically towards the beach as the wave or foam passes.

Safety and behaviour rules for the water - Part 1.

Bodyboarding is a fantastic sport, but one that requires everyone to respect certain basic rules to preserve the safety and enjoyment of all.
1- Find out as much about the spot as much as you can: current, rocks, tides, the size of the waves and the crowds, etc.
2- Don’t overestimate your level, and go for an easier spot if your skills aren’t on par with the conditions.
3- Use suitable equipment: Leash, fins, board in good condition, neoprene wetsuit.

Safety and behaviour rules for the water - Part 2.

4- Follow the wave priority rules: Priority is given to whoever is closest to where the wave is breaking.
5- Go around the surfing area as you paddle out to the break to avoid getting in another rider's way.
6- Use fins if the water level is higher than your hips.
7- If you are not using fins, stay in the safe swimming area and ask for help from the lifeguards.
8- Ride with friends.

Do not leave out in direct heat

When not in use, keep your bodyboard out of the sun or temperatures higher than 30°C.
Protect your board by using a cover, putting it under a parasol, in the shade, or under a light coloured towel to keep the heat away.
Do not leave it in a car in direct sunlight.
Leaving your board exposed to too much heat can cause blisters or bubbles to form on it, or even cause warping.

Response of the brand

Hi Shen,


Thank you for the kind feedback regarding the 100 Kids' Technical 1st Price Bodyboard 6 - 12 years 35' + Leash - Blue. We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience experience you had.


However with this feedback we will definitely alert the production side on the quality control & to provide better quality regarding this so as not to have any of our users experience it too.


We can offer you an exchange for any item that is equivalent to the price of the bodyboard & you can head to any of our store to do this.


Thank you & have a good day ahead! :)

Our kids aged 7 & 10 use this bodyboard, and found it difficult to catch waves, since they would almost sink right after pushing off.
A cheap bodyboard - I guess you get what you pay for.
Excellent starter and fun board

Soft and sturdy beginner bodyboard. Nice that it doesn't have a platic sheet bottom which normally tears off on other boards because of plenty sand skimming action. Great little board for price.
Great beginner bodyboard
