Accelerating on a bodyboard
As with all surf sports, the acceleration is a crucial part of bodyboarding. It allows you to surf fast waves and execute more complicated moves, or even aerial moves.
To generate speed, start by moving your body towards the front of the board.
Then, by alternately moving the weight of the body towards the front as you descend (this has the effect of pressing down on the front of the board) and moving the weight of the body towards the back as you ascend (this has the effect of lightening the board), you will create a wave motion that will generate speed.
