Boogie boarding

Catching a wave
Boogie boarding (Sponging to surfers) involves a small, foam shrunken surfboard which is held in front of you in a breaking wave. Unlike surfing, the wave has to be caught close to where it breaks. It makes a good alternative to the more relaxed stuff when the surf is up.

The rolling tube just as the wave breaks
The force of the water pushes you forward to the shore.

And, if you get it right, all the way into the shore.

Waves usually come in 2's
The second wave is often the largest - make sure you double check before launch.

Double hit
Although the second, usually larger, wave gives a good surge of speed.

Always wear a shirt!
Unnoticed at the time, the sand between the board and your chest makes for very uncomfortable nights.
