After being totally laid up for almost a week with some nasty flu type bug followed by a vicious sciatica attack brought on by my bedridden state :cry: I was finally able to get the Bodypo in the water for a session in some fairly clean and punchy waist to chest high surf yesterday.
Wasn't sure what to expect with the board but so far I'm very pleased.
The flotation is just right, there's enough flex to be functional, certainly as much speed as other bodyboards but so much easier to duck dive and all the wonderful attributes of cork.
Love being able to warp the board as needed while riding.
Hoping to be able to ride this board during the summer Blackball hours but suspect I'll end up having to paint it to avoid confrontation....... Thoughts?

I would really like to see a blank in the 5' range at some point Dave.
Paipo surfer in repose,
Nose on the nose,
No grunting he-man pose.
See how fast he goes!
What is it he knows?
