Hi, how's it going? My name's Joey Vagnerini, of Aussie Island Surf Shop, in Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm here today to tell you about how to bodyboard. The first thing you want to do when you're bodyboarding is there's a leash that attaches to the front of the board and it goes in at both ends. Basically, you're going to want to just put this leash on on your dominant hand; up above, on your bicep. The bicep is the most common place to put it for the most strength and maneuverability of the board. So, you strap that on. It's just a Velcro strap. Basically, you're going to want to ride the right size bodyboard. And a very common size; they come in like from thirty nine centimeters to about forty one, forty three, around there, and basically, this is a forty one. It's a very common size for a bodyboard. So, the first thing you're going to want to do is you're going to want to lie flat on your stomach; centered in the board, with your hands about right here. And as you paddle for the wave you want to always have your hands here so you can steer this way, as well as this way, and have a overall withhold on the board. And that's how to bodyboard.
