Body boarding

At the Isle of Wight our range of water sports includes the fun and accessible sport of Body Boarding. Without the extra level of difficulty involved in standing up on a surfboard, body boarders lie on their stomachs and ‘surf’ their buoyant boards towards the shore. This teaches the dynamics of catching waves, steering a board using it’s edges and also builds a great sense of confidence in the water before progressing to other board sports.
