Bodyboarding for 8 Year Olds
Bodyboarding is one of the easier surf activities for kids and they will enjoy the thrill of catching a wave and steering their board. For kids, a bodyboard should have a solid core, a slick bottom,be the right size, have a wrist strap and hopefully their favourite colour. The right size bodyboard for a 8 year old should be basically from your kids knee to their chin.
This is an amazing video of some bodyboarders in action in Sydney, Australia with the cool, gopro camera taking some footage inside some barrels.
The next video has some cool bodyboarding tricks that the kids can try once they get the hang of bodyboarding.
If they get really good at bodyboarding, maybe the kids can try some of these monster waves around the world.
