Ben Mackinnon has developed a specific physical training program for bodyboarders.
The sport of bodyboarding demands proper workout routines. You can't just paddle out and pull the most complex maneuvers without warming up.
If you really want to keep developing your bodyboarding skills, you must embed physical exercises in your life in order to keep your muscles and lungs ready for action.

Miles Kauhaahaa has ridden Jaws in Drop-Knee mode, during one of the largest swells of the last 40 years in Maui, Hawaii.
Bodyboarders keep pushing their limits and exploring new frontiers. This time, Miles Kauhaahaa decided to ride Peahi, one of the fastest waves in the world, in Drop-Knee mode.
Apparently, nobody had done it before. Perhaps because nobody's crazy enough to drop into Jaws with a pair of bodyboard fins, in "praying" mode, alongside top surfers John John Florence, Ian Walsh, and many more.

A 47-year old bodyboarder has lost his life at Its Beach, Santa Cruz, Northern California.
James Zenk, from Mountain View, was catching waves in 12-foot surf when he was suddenly dashed against rocks near the Santa Cruz Lighthouse. The rider had previously declined help from Santa Cruz Fire rescuers on jet skis.
According to Battalion Chief Mike Venezio, "a huge set sucked him toward the toilet bowl". Two rescue swimmers dived in, but they immediately feared for their own lives as big waves kept hitting the rocks.
