Sunburst Air 40" (body board)

Bodyboarding originates from an ancient form of prone wave riding, indigenous to West Africa and later to Polynesians, popularised in the early 70s. Perfect for riding the shorebreak and for learning the dynamics of surfing. Combine with swim fins and a lycra or neoprene rash vest to avoid irritation for the best experience. 


If you have a family headed to the beach, with or without surf, owning a bodyboard will provide a fun platform for riding the shorebreak or simply enjoying the water. A bodyboard is the best way for kids or adults to learn the dynamics of playing in waves under 1m. Learn to duck dive, trim along a wave, and wave selection to build confidence in the surf. A rash shirt is essential to protect your chest area from abrasion; select from our extensive technical wear collection. Features fast flow tail for improved performance, super stable and rideable.
