The difference between bodysurfing fins and bodyboarding fins

The fundamental differences between bodysurfing and bodyboarding fins

Paul Watts, an accomplished bodyboarder and bodysurfer, has bodysurfedand bodyboarded around the world, from Sumatra to South Africa, and has used just about every fin under the sun on his travels. He has lost more fins in wipeouts in exotic places than most people have thought about fins.

"As a bodyboarder, the fins that I like are generally smaller, as I like to get up drop-knee. Therefore, I prefer a fatter, stiffer fin with a softer compound around the foot. I always struggled to find good fins that do not give me blisters. The problem with a lot of the fins is that they are all very much designed to control flow above water when you are on the wave and add control for the "bodyboarder" and little to no thought is given to the fin being used for bodysurfing." - Paul Watts

From a bodysurfing point of view, we have a relatively small selection of fins to choose from that are specifically designed for bodysurfers. However, our sport is growing, and companies are starting to design fins for bodysurfers.

THREE things to keep in mind when buying new fins for "bodysurfing"
