It’s been established that bodysurfing is a great way for students to relieve stress, but is it also healthy for students to become active in this sport?

There are a number of benefits why it helps students to be more focused and more healthy, which this article will explore:

It’s good for the body

Bodysurfing and other forms of exercise have been proven to be good for one’s physical health. It’s now common knowledge that getting some exercise during the day improves physical health, and bodysurfing is no exception.

Bodysurfing improves one’s mood and mental health

Today students are in the age group that sees the highest incidents of depression in the USA. This prevalence has become a national concern to many, but there are ways of combating it, and bodysurfing is one of the ways to improve one’s mood and fight depression.

It boosts energy levels

It’s no secret that a student’s life can be very hectic to the point that they often feel tired. This is a time where bodysurfing comes in again as a great way to boost energy levels and get that bounce back in their step so that they can be better able to get through that busy school day and bodysurfing will even result in a better night’s rest.

Bodysurfing helps to improve one’s concentration

The results aren’t one hundred percent conclusive, but there are studies to say that exercise, such as bodysurfing, helps people to better focus on their studies. Indeed, it’s believed that all age groups, including students, benefit from a boost in concentration as a result. So, it’s not a bad thing to try when it comes to improving those grades!

It’s better for overall physical health

The benefits of exercising and handboarding show that it helps to combat health conditions and diseases. The list of different ailments that bodysurfing can combat is long, but here are a few examples: High blood pressure, stroke, cancer, arthritis, and even diabetes. It also helps people live longer and healthier in the long-term, so starting as a student is just plain, good thinking.

Bodysurfing helps to control one’s weight

This is one of the more obvious benefits to bodysurfing, but it’s also one of the more popular! College students are likely to gain about ten pounds during their first degree, which doesn’t always sit well with everyone. A great way to lose a few pounds is to get out there and conquer a few waves. It won’t be long before those extra pounds start to melt away!

It improves people’s social health

Campus life, itself, can seem like the very center of bustling days and exciting nights, but there are also many who live off-campus. It’s those students that usually find it more difficult to meet people and get out of the house.

For students who want to have a degree and a social life, handboarding is a great way to get out of the house and out to a beach. This is a social sport where people can get outside and meet others with similar interests. It isn’t a bad idea to find out if one’s local college or university has a bodysurfing club. If it doesn’t, then start one up!

Bodysurfing gets people off-campus

There are sports activities on-campus, but the truth is that dorm and fraternity life is usually not that health-conscious. The reality is that there’s usually a lot of drinking, partying, and studying going on when it comes to living on-campus.

Living in this world can take its toll, so it’s a good idea to get away from the university with friends and go out to the coast. A great excuse to go is to get out for a little bodysurfing!

Student’s physical and mental health have been shown to be of great importance to those looking to get a degree or a diploma. If there’s one thing that’s become clear, it’s that lectures and studying promote a more sedentary lifestyle among students, but there are ways to combat that with getting out for an afternoon of bodysurfing!

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.

So much fun!

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!

Love my Bula!

I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
