How do you choose your bodyboard size?
The size of the bodyboard directly influences its stability and ease of handling. It must be adapted to the user's size. As such, this bodyboard is designed for kids weighing between 15 and 25 kg, i.e. between 4 and 8 years old.
A bodyboard that is too small will not float enough so you will miss 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.

Directions for use
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.
How to catch a wave with this product
Designed to catch and ride broken waves by the shore, this product is used where the kid can touch the bottom, with the water below waist height. As a small broken wave passes (<50cm) the kid pushes off using their feet, aiming towards the beach, and lies down on their belly on the bodyboard, with their hands on the handles, arms bent and legs stretched out behind them. It is not necessary to use fins.
