TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

choosing your bodyboard size

Bodyboard size 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, and waves can be missed. A bodyboard too big will be difficult to handle.
Refer to the size chart online or in store.

Radbug designs products for 4 levels: Novice, beginner, intermediate, advanced

- Novices: Up to the navel, no fins, small waves under 50 cm, propulsion by pushing feet on the ground and riding the wave to the shore. For a first wave-riding experience (bodyboard with grips).
- Beginner: 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; 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 other bodyboards in the 100 range.

Position body correctly on the bodyboard

Bodyguard’s nose is preformed for optimal hand positioning.
When catching the wave, both hands are placed at the front.
To go left, keep left hand at the front (hand, elbow and shoulder should be aligned, with upper arm at 90° forearm), move right hand back to the middle of the board and then grab the right rail. Position left leg in line with the left rail to maintain direction.
Do the opposite to go right.

Avoiding chafing and having the best grip on board.

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

Recommendations 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 the waist. In this case, propel 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.

Water safety and etiquette - Part 1

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

Water safety and etiquette - Part 2

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

Do not leave exposed to heat

When not in use, keep bodyboard out of the sun or temperatures higher than 30°C.
Protect the 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 the board exposed to too much heat can cause blisters or bubbles to form, or cause warping.
