“I consider it a real honor to have boxed Kelly Slater, though his manager called me a few years ago and asked if I would fight Kelly in a cage match.” – Paul Roach

Born To Boogie

Born To Boogie – Legends of Bodyboarding by Owen Pye and Mike Stewart

Full description for Born to Boogie
To its legions of followers, bodyboarding is quite simply the most intense watersport on the planet. Wherever you find waves that are too heavy for even the most gung-ho surfers, there you’ll find the boogers, screaming into dredging pits and scoring impossibly deep barrels. Born to Boogie: Legends of Bodyboarding tells the story of this incredible sport from 1971 to the present day. The pioneers, the champions and the underground chargers are all profiled, among them Tom Morey, Pat Caldwell, Ben Severson, Jay Reale, Mike Stewart, Michael ‘Eppo’ Eppelstun, Guilherme Tamega, Andre Botha, Ryan Hardy, Damian King, Ben Player, Jeff Hubbard, Mitch Rawlins and Pierre Louis Costes. Written by respected bodyboard journalist Owen Pye, Born to Boogie tells the tale of how the sport was created, how it developed, flourished, faltered and fought back to become one of the most exciting extreme sports in the world today. Filled with incredible stories spanning four decades and packed with iconic images, Born to Boogie is a book that will fascinate every bodyboarder.

Applying A Bodyboard Leash Plug

We received our leash plug in today that we ordered from

Here are the basic steps on how to install one

Unscrew the plug and untie the rope

Place the plug around 2 inches from the side of the rail and from the tail. This will be the exact spot you want the plug to be. We prefer our leash on the right leg so we our placing the plug on the right side. You can place your leash plug on the left hand side or if you prefer an arm leash you can place your plug towards the nose of the board.

Flipping the board over you have to feel and use your best judgment on where the bottom plug will line up

X marks the spot

Using a screwdriver (one that is not to thick in diameter) directly push the screwdriver through the bottom and be sure to go as straight as possible and not at any angle

Pushing the screwdriver all the way through (you do not want to push the screwdriver from the top of the deck to the bottom as this will loosen the slick bottom skin)

Take the top part of the plug and push it into the hole

Take the bottom part of the plug and push it into the hole while turning it as far as you can with your hand (this is why it is important to make a straight hole with the screwdriver so the plugs line up)

After turning the plug as much as possible with your hand you will then want to use a quarter and turn it the rest of the way until you can not physically turn the quarter any further

You are now ready to tie on the leash as we suggest a 6ft surf leash
