The Bodyboard Travel Guide is the first book of its kind, focussing specifically on the prime destinations for bodyboarding around the world. More than 100 of the planet's best bodyboard waves are described in detail, and readers are given all the information they need to locate the breaks and score the best waves going. Destinations include well-known surf zones like the North Shore of Hawaii and Australia’s Gold Coast, as well as off-the-beaten-track locations like Papua New Guinea and Micronesia. The descriptive text is interspersed with real-life Travellers’ Tales, where seasoned bodyboarders recount their experiences of slogging through jungles or across deserts to reach those elusive perfect waves. The book is packed with stunning photos of the world’s best bodyboard spots, taken by renowned photographers such as Mickey Smith, Tim Jones, Andrew Shield, Todd Glaser, Rod Owen, Roger Sharp and Mike Searle. The Bodyboard Travel Guide also includes sections on equipment, fitness, training, diet, first aid, meteorology, boat trips, road trips and cold water trips. With an inspirational foreword by hard-charging Australian pro Mitch Rawlins, this book is a must-buy for bodyboarders of all abilities.
