Boogie boarding, also known as bodyboarding, is a popular water sport that kids enjoy at Aloha Beach Camp. It's a great way to have fun in the waves and enjoy the ocean, but it's important to boogie board safely to help avoid injuries and accidents.
Our camp counselors will be with your kids every step of the way providing instruction and assistance to help your camper boogie board in a safe and fun manner this summer at camp. But we also realize kids and families may want to boogie board on their own, so we've put together this article to help you be safe when boogie boarding in the ocean.
First and foremost, make sure you have the right equipment. A boogie board should be the right size and weight for you, and it should be in good condition. You should also have a leash that attaches your board to your wrist, so you don't lose it in the water.
Next, choose the right location. Look for a beach with gentle waves and no rocks or other hazards. Avoid beaches with strong currents or rough surf, as these can be dangerous for boogie boarding. If you're not sure about the conditions, ask a lifeguard or other beach official for advice.
Once you're ready to hit the water, start by lying on your stomach on the boogie board with your arms extended in front of you. Kick your legs to propel yourself forward and use your arms to steer the board. Keep your head up and look for oncoming waves, and try to ride them as they break.
If you fall off your board, don't panic. Hold onto the leash and swim back to your board. If you're having trouble, raise your hand and wave for help. A lifeguard or another beachgoer may be able to assist you.
It's also important to be aware of other beachgoers and avoid colliding with them. Keep a safe distance from other boogie boarders and swimmers, and watch out for boats and other watercraft.
In conclusion, boogie boarding can be a fun and exciting way to enjoy the ocean, but it's important to do so safely. Follow these tips to have a fun and safe time on your boogie board. Happy boogie boarding!
Keeping kids safe, comfortable and having fun in the ocean is a staple of Aloha Beach Camp's program. We have 100% safety record and intend to keep it that way. One of the primary elements of our beach camp safety program is limiting how deep we allow kids to swim in the water. No child is permitted to go deeper than their waist with their feet firmly touching the ocean floor. As you can see from the photo above, kids can walk out plenty far from the sand and still remain at waist-depth in the ocean. This is one on the top reasons we've chosen Zuma Beach to run our program. Campers can go out pretty far in the water but the ocean doesn't get too deep.
