Surfing and Bodyboarding

Both surfing and bodyboarding are grouped as surface water sports. Both of these sports are adventure sports and are ventured by either professionals or avid sports-lovers. It is not a child's play to brave turbulent tides and surfs and make way through rough sea. The idea is basically to ride the surfing board make way through the wayward, lofty tides and reach shore.

For surfing, a surfer needs kayaks, knee boards, surf skis and body board. With time different derivatives of this sport has also got popularized. Kite surfing and wind surfing are among the widely popular adventure sports. These sports are played with the assistance of wind. So the efficiency of the player has to rely to a large extent on the speed of wind. Paddleboarding and sea kayaking are types of surfing that are played while the wind refuses to help. A river or open ocean kayak in another way to enjoy water sports and surfing types of adventure.

According to the available documents surfing started being played in the Hawaii islands. Lieutenant James King, who was assigned to finish the journals of James Cook, was the first surfer. The sport got an overwhelming response among the adventurous and energetic Hawaiians. They surfed both lying down and standing on the surfing boards. Wind helps in forming swells over a wide region. The size of the swell depends entirely on the strength of wind and the length and duration of the fetch of that wind. Fetches are higher towards the shore that is why the real fun of surfing is towards the coastline. There the sea-water is exposed to vast land and sandy area.

Bodyboarding is a stylish form of sport that involves riding the waves with the help of a bodyboard. Bodyboards are the best gifts for bodyboarders. The board is padded with foam and ridden either lying down or in a half-standing posture. In this half sit stance one knee touches the board. This bended knee is called "dropknee". Bodyboard can be ridden standing. Bodyboarders usually wear a pair of swimfins on both their feet. These swimfins can be gifted to people who love bodyboarding.

The oldest documents that support the popularity of bodyboarding in older days is a journal published in 1778. Hawaiian men used to ride surfs on paipo boards. Men often just don't care for searching an exact bodyboard. They believe the same fun can be derived from riding the waves on an oval shaped plank.
