Just over 20 years ago back in 1998 former British Champion and ex professional bodyboarder Rob Barber decided that he wanted to give something back and share his knowledge of the sport to the masses. He wanted to create a product that offered people a unique opportunity and tailor made, bespoke experience that ensured riders would develop their bodyboarding ability but most importantly have a great time with like minded bodyboarders in a focused and structured environment with the emphasis on getting more waves.
This began with simple bodyboard coaching for one or two hours but soon developed in to something far better ‘Bodyboard coaching weekends’
Fast forward 21 years and we have Bodyboard-Holidays. The worlds premiere tour operator specialising in taking bodyboarders all around the world to some of the best waves and most incredible and exotic line ups you will find anywhere.
One of the main stays of the business however is where it all started, the coaching weekends in the UK. Having been a local to Cornwall since he was a boy Rob and his carefully selected team of instructors will put you on exactly the right waves for your skill set each day to ensure you get the most out of your bodyboard coaching weekend. With expert coaching, second to none local guiding and knowledge of the area plus video analysis you’ll be given targeted instruction to guarantee massive improvements.
Alongside being the best place to improve your riding a bodyboard coaching weekend is a great place to meet other likeminded boogers, whether it’s out back in the surf or over a glass of wine at the evening meal in our favourite local restaurant, being on a bodyboard coaching weekend is a great place to catch up with friends old or new and talk about all things boogie.
After two decades of delivering bodyboard coaching, tweaks have been made along the way, some things have changed and some things have stayed the same. The one thing that has never changed however is great bodyboarding advice, excellent guiding, delicious food and guaranteed social good times.
