Child and adult weights
This tandem bodyboard is designed for two-rider bodyboarding, with a child at the front and an adult at the back. To use the product correctly, the child must not weigh more than 40kg and the adult no more than 80kg.
How to catch waves with or without fins
Although the child must not be wearing fins, the adult can choose whether or not to use them.
In both cases, the child will lie at the front and hold the central handle and the adult will lie at the back and hold the side handles.
Without fins, the water level should be below your hips. In this case, push off from the ground when the wave passes (< 1m).
With fins, adults can kick energetically towards the beach when the wave passes (< 1m).
Safety and behaviour rules for the water - Part 1.
Bodyboarding is a fantastic sport, but one that requires everyone to respect certain basic rules to preserve the safety and enjoyment of all.
1- Find out as much about the spot as you can: current, rocks, tides, the size of the waves and the crowds, etc.
2- Don’t overestimate your level, and go for an easier spot if your skills aren’t on par with the conditions.
3- Use suitable equipment: Leash, fins, board in good condition, a suitable neoprene wetsuit
Safety and behaviour rules for the water - Part 2.
4- Follow the wave priority rules: Priority is given to whoever is closest to where the wave is breaking.
5- Go around the surfing area as you paddle out to the break to avoid getting in another surfer or bodyboarder's way.
6- Use fins if the water level is higher than your hips.
7- If you are not using fins, it is recommended to stay in the safe swimming area, ask the lifeguards present at the spot.
Recommendations for avoiding chafing and having the best grip on your board.
You should be lying flat on the bodyboard when catching waves. Be sure to wear a long-sleeved anti-UV top or a wetsuit to avoid chafing on your arms and torso.
We recommend you apply wax to the top of your bodyboard - especially on the front hand position, on the sides, and under your torso - for the best grip (sold separately in the surfing aisle). Do this for each session.
Adding a leash
If you want to add a leash, attach it to one of the handles. Leashes are available to purchase separately.
Do not leave exposed to heat
When not in use, keep your bodyboard out of the sun or temperatures >30°C.
Protect your board by using a cover, putting it under a parasol, in the shade, or under a light coloured towel to keep the heat away.
Never leave it in a car in direct sunlight.
Leaving your board exposed to too much heat can cause blisters or bubbles to form on it, or even cause warping.
