It's Time To Give Bodyboarding The Respect That It Deserves

Rocket Power will go down as one of the most influential television shows of the 21st century. I think we can all agree on that. But unfortunately with great influence also comes great consequence. And one of the worst consequences to come from the show was the lame-ification of bodyboarding. Everybody wanted to be Otto, Reggie and Twister. But ain't nobody wanted to be Squid. So while surfing skyrocketed in popularity, boogie boarding became social suicide. 

But it's time for that to change. It's time for everybody to start giving bodyboarding the respect it deserves. Because bodyboarding is rad as hell and we have the video evidence to prove it. 

You trying to tell me that this beast isn't ripping Pipeline just as hard as anybody else out there? 

You trying to tell me they're not getting so pitted before hitting the launch pad?

And are you seriously trying to tell me that the wipeouts aren't just as gnarly?

Fact of the matter is that bodyboarding is dope and it's time to reclaim the beaches. For the rest of the summer I need my Boogie Squad to be out in full force. No longer shall we feel shame for rolling up to the beach with an arm full of foam. The boys are ready to rip.
