WHY DO YOU BODYSURF?

I fell in love with body surfing through no fault of my own. I didn’t think much of it at first, but through a chance injury a friend sustained, we thought we would give it a go and It has since become my greatest passion. The combination of easily dropping into waves and the hollow tubes makes for carefree fun. No leash, no board, no dramas. It is more or less just you and the ocean. The longer the glide, the better the rush.

WHAT WAVE TYPES DO YOU LIKE TO BODYSURF?

My preferred waves are reef breaks, as when they are working they offer a nice hollow ride that is fast and clean. Each reef break is unique in its own way and can offer some amazing rides after getting over the jolt of the first drop in. Nothing better!
