bodysurfing lacks recognition? I don't know a single surfer or bodyboarder who doesn't love bodysurfing.

Not so much since I’m 61 and body whomping isn’t easy. I’m going for it this summer when the water warms up and it’s cranking.

Not sure I agree with Hawaiians being the best bodysurfers in the world - we have plenty here on Queensland's Gold Coast. I've been in the water with my brothers and fellow lifesavers most days the past 50 years, and I reckon we're pretty good...

Waimea is a tricky break . ask lifeguard where the sand bar stay . It's tricky because the size of wave doesn't matter . a big wave could just pop you out the back and a small wave could throw in a washing machine effect .

This is a really bad spot for body surfing! I don't care what everyone says on this video. The waves break way too fast and envelope the surfer within a second or two. Slower moving waves that don't break so violently are much better for body surfing. I rode some waves for 5-10 seconds all the way to the beach in California and the Caribbean. Here is an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EblpNV_13Jc

I was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii and I have body surfed during my entire life. I always carried a pair of Voit Viking or Churchill "Makapuu fins in the trunk of my car along with a pair of palaka shorts and Speedos in my younger days. I loved riding the breaks at Makapuu Point on Oahu and the Wedge in Newport Beach, California.

+Christopher Atkinson you should youtube different wave styles, The waves they are catching are just your typical close-out shorebreak. There is nothing to 'make' wave just closes out. That Matt Lasren video was sick though!

Why do they spin? I never spin nor have I ever seen anyone spin when they bodysurf except in videos.
Bobb Lawrence

+Tahole Carson that is a shitty answer! OK, it is funi!
Bobb Lawrence
Bobb Lawrence - 6 years ago
it is just a maneuver that can take you in places in the wave that you can't go to going straight. fun and actually can be exhilirating. it also looks fancy and gets points in contests! double and triple spins count even more as long s you don't lose the wave or make it look bad.

+Daniel “Danielsan” Gonzalez I bodysurf when I can, the spin is something I think that you just feel like doing when you are on the wave bodysurfing.

Well, I guess you can make a sport out of anything... to me, it seems like someone desperately wanted to put a label on "splashing around in the waves for the fun of it". Seriously? Do we need that as a "sport"? Aren't there enough Jocks around already....?

+Bailey Roberson Well, I grew up next to a pretty fierce river, trained for about 7 years in my youth, so I'll probably be fine...

You, on the other hand, should really look into the punctuation rules of the english language... plus, "though" is written with "th".  The semantics are also not too great: "put yourself in that position before you start talking". So you're saying I should be inside the ocean when I'm typing my messages? (and it's actually "typing", I'm not "talking" to you here...). And I had to google "shorebreak", turns out to be a term "surfers" use... guess you're one of those... well then, have a nice one, "dude"!
Bailey Roberson
Bailey Roberson - 7 years ago
Have you ever been to the beach or even to a good shorebreak spot I dought it you would probably drown if you even came close to one of these waves they are so heavy and fast so put yourself in that position before you start talking.

Hell ya we do, like they said bodysurfing is the purest form of wave riding. It was invented way before surfing or bodyboarding. If this was never invented surfing wouldn't be around neither would bodyboarding!
Greg Dahlen

seems a lot more focused than splashing around in the waves, they are really riding the waves?

Aloha Teamsters,
One thing about Hawaiian Bodysurfers, we do with "Style" and we're water-acrobat. Under water take-off, spinners, off dah' lip, cork-screws, helicopter, belly-spins (table-top), forward-flip, what more to say, we love what we do as "Hawai`i Watermens & Womens Kaha-Nalu" Amene....Peace & Aloha Hawaiianitedivah`

Bodysurfing has commun points with making love (spirit, not excitement) : you feel the very importance of each part of you body, your body is lead by a superior force and you forget everything else, you feel the beauty of the wave and the delightful pain of his crash, as soon as you finish one you want another but you need to rest. I don't understand why people want to make a public event of making love. It is intimate, and you don't care about what you do is impressive or not ; bodysurfing is less impressive than surfing. Anyway, those videos make me remember that should go back to the sea.

Bodyboard fins are ok for bodysurf. Best to get most comfortable. Churchill are my go to favorite for both bodyboard or bodysurf.
