Boogie Boarding

Did you know boogie boarding and bodyboarding are the same thing? The name “boogie board” comes from a business called Morey Boogie, founded by Tom Morey, but bodyboarding is the true name for the board and the sport. While many traditional surfers might still consider the boogie board the black sheep of the wave-riding world, this specialized craft is embraced by young and old alike yearning to ride Florida’s epic waves.

The expansive Florida coastline offers the perfect waves for any ability. The beaches in and around Volusia County and the city of Daytona are ideal. Here are a few of note.

Daytona Beach is one of the most popular beaches in the world. It is great for boogie boarding due to its relaxed environment and awesome waves. It’s the perfect place for fun!

Ponce Inlet is another good place for boogie boarding, but it’s important to note that it’s also known for shark attacks. According to the Volusia County, most shark attacks occur near Ponce Inlet and its local piers.

New Smyrna Inlet is one of the most popular boogie boarding spots in Florida due to its more sizable waves. This area is also popular with surfers, so if you don’t enjoy crowds, it might not be for you.

Cocoa Beach is home to Kelly Slater, one of the best surfers in the world. Not only is Cocoa Beach one of the most epic beaches in Florida, it’s also one of the best boogie boarding beaches. This beach features considerable waves making bodysurfing a top priority.

Flagler Beach is perfect if you’re looking for a low-key beach for wave riding. Its clear waters and awesome waves make it great for boogie boarding.

Don’t have a board? No worries! Rentals are available at several locations along the coast, so get out there and gave fun!
