Have you forgotten your bodyboarding fins at home? Have you ripped your flippers while putting them on? Have you lost them in the rough surf? No worries. You still have the board.
Bodyboarding is a prone wave riding sport, which means your hands and feet are in constant interaction with the water. As a result, bodyboarders use their arms and legs to catch waves, steer, control the board and perform tricks and maneuvers down the line.
Fins are an essential part of bodyboarding, not only because they play a significant propulsive role in getting into the wave fast, but also while riding the wave and the barrel and boosting into the air.
