This fellow was having a wonderful time a few days ago at Sandy Beach.



Sony, DSLR-A100 with Tamron 28-250 mm, 1/500s f/9.0 at 250.0mm iso100.

I had not noticed before, I got curious and looked it up. But does anyone know "Y" body"BOARDERS" wear fins? Regular surfers don't.

Correction from earlier post. The term is body "boarders" not body "surfers." Thanks Cal.

Aloha

Nice shot, Selvin.

I don't know why for sure, but regular surfers wouldn't be able to get on their boards if they wore them. The body surfers probably use that to their advantage in being able to move faster. Just my thoughts.

Yesterday, Vsch1,

Thanks for your comments.

Apparently the fins would be a hindrance on a regular surfboard whereas they add a significant degree of control on a "boogie board."

Body surfing with a board?? I don't think so. My understanding of body surfing is that no board is used. Perhaps a board is used to get out to the wave but is not used for riding the wave. The fins probably give better control.

Cal,

You are most correct, for my photo the term is BODY BOARDING using the boogie board. I made this error about ten years ago and that part of my brain keeps typing the wrong thing everytime.

Thanks for the eagle eye. If possible, can my heading my changed?

Aloha

The reason for fins says my surfer son, is to be able to paddle back OUT more efficiently to catch the next wave.

I was called a "sponge head" when I used to boogie board back in the day by surfers:G. I also used fins to help me get into the wave along with going back out faster.



Either way..nice picture.
