Bodysurfing is superior in every way to boardfags
>>
>>296
Is it even possible?
>>
>>359
Yea, just need some fins to get some speed to catch the wave. Then you lean on your leading hand and skim the water.

Bump for risking your life

Bumptoo, because it's the purest form of surfing, but boards are radical

I have nothing against boardfags, I just love spending time in the ocean, catching a wave when I get bored and sliding back onto the beach like it's nothing.

Broken neck general?

Whats the general opinion on using a handplane? I was thinking of making one but not sure if I would really use it.
>>
>>296

It's a pretty popular thing to do at most of the beaches I go to, pretty much everyone does it. Recent years have been having a lot more people bringing fins going for bigger waves too.
>>
>>6835
What exactly do they do? Allow you to go a bit faster and catch bigger waves? Rarely see anyone using them.
>>
>>296
except you get 3 seconds per ride before closing out. maybe 5 at best.
>>
Unironically a great way to paralyze yourself.
>>
>>296
I think I found my new favorite board, no way in hell is body surfing comparable to board surfing man.
>>

That brings back memories of bodyboarding and surfing at The Wedge in Newport/Balboa.
>>
>>296
Both are fun man let people enjoy the ocean as they want. Can't body surf big steep barrels you just don't have the speed.
>>
>>7945
they don't affect wave catching ability at all
they allow you to push down into the water so you're ilfting more of your body out and and in turn go faster and for longer
>>
>bodysurfing is superior in every way
Bodyboarders only put more of their body in the water when they want to create more drag to deliberately slow themselves down and surfers eliminate the problem entirely by standing on a board that keeps them out of the water completely.
It seems like bodysurfing on the other hand is basically built around the one aspect of surfing that creates the most drag: having your body in the water.
Don't get me wrong, I think bodysurfing is cool, but I wouldn't kid myself into thinking it's inherently superior in any way. Having said all that, if it's your thing, you enjoy it and you're not getting in anyone's way when you do it, then nothing else beyond that should really be a concern.

>>296
its fucking full chad level

what does the handplane add? I've always bodysurf with my body
