How to choose your bodyboard?

    There are 3 types of boards available (100, 500 and 900) to fit everybody. The higher you go for the board's category, the more nervosity you are going to have from your board. We will advise you to get slippers when you are practising in waters higher than your knees, it will help you to propulse along the waves.

    Your choice will be oriented by your size, your weight and your type of practice:
