Top US Bodyboarding Spots
Hello Bodyboarders! Welcome back to the Hammerhead Bodyboards Blog! Today we pose an important question to our readers: “If you could bodyboard anywhere in the world, where would you go?” We know, try to narrow it down to your top favorites and then go from there, right? Well, that’s exactly what we tried to do in today’s Hammerhead Blog post. Since we don’t dare to try and rank these iconic surf locales, we will just say that we would be THRILLED to be able to shred at any one of the following super-spots! Read on to see if your favorite spot made the Hammerhead Bodyboards Top Spots list!
The Heaviest Spots
Bodyboarding was born in the U.S.A. but quickly grew to a worldwide competitive sport that seeks out the biggest and best waves all over the world. There are SO many amazing spots to bodyboard that we couldn’t possibly list them all. Instead, we are going to talk about some of the most well known and heaviest hitting spots in the U.S.A!
Banzai Pipeline, North Shore Oahu, Hawaii
One of the most incredible spots to surf and bodyboard on the planet is “Pipeline” in Oahu, HI. Huge, picture perfect barrels roll down the beach but at the peril of the shallow underlying jagged reefs. The veritable surfing and bodyboarding paradise is also know to have the “world’s deadliest waves” as it has claimed the lives of at least seven since 1989. One thing we know for sure, though. Eddie would go.
The Wedge, Newport Beach, California
Any serious bodyboarder needs to catch a beating a the Wedge in Newport Beach, CA. Described as brutal and unforgiving, the wedge is known for huge atypical waves and steep shore break. Renovation of the Newport Harbor in 1936 resulted in the unique features that spawn freakishly huge wedges bodyboarders can blast off of. If you can handle a little rough stuff for a big return then the Wedge can dish out all you can take and then some.
Honolua Bay, Maui, Hawaii
We head back to the island paradise of Hawaii to find the bodyboarding haven of Honolua Bay, HI. The islands of Hawaii is where Hammerhead Bodyboards were born, and we must admit our soft spot for the Aloha State. Honolua Bay requires a higher level of bodyboarding skill to take full advantage of what this spot has to offer. Tubes galore and plenty of opportunities for big air make this one of our can’t-miss bodyboarding spots.
