Много добро качество на достъпна цена!

Дъската е с високо качество, цената е достъпна! Все още не е тествана в оптимални условия (вълни до 1.5м) на вълни до 1м. се държи приятно!

Defekt geliefert

Das Boart an sich wäre wohl ok, kam aber eingedellt an beiden Seiten hier an und die Leash fehlte dann auch noch. Das absolute Montagsmodell. Das war aber sicher kein Transportschaden, sondern wurde so defekt verschickt. Mir aber dann am Telefon zu sagen das Boart müsste aus Sicherheitsgründen doch lieber zurück finde ich echt unterirdisch. Dann hätten sie es wohl lieber gar nicht erst verschickt. Mein Sohn war jedenfalls am Boden zerstört das er nun doch kein Board hat. Klasse Leistung von Decathlon .

Guten Tag,


vielen Dank, dass du dir Zeit genommen hast das Bodyboard von Radbug zu bewerten.


Erst einmal tut es uns sehr Leid, dass das Board defekt bei dir ankam. Es ist schwer zu sagen an welcher Stelle der Belieferungskette das Board beschädigt worden ist, werden der Sache jedoch nachgehen. Fakt ist jedoch, dass wir aus Sicherheitsgründen tatsächlich das gaze Board umtauschen müssen. Alles andere wäre unverantwortlich unsere Kunden gegenüber.


Es tut mir Leid für die Umstände und wir hoffen dich in Zukunft wieder von unseren Produkten und Servicen überzeugen zu können.


Mit sportlichen Grüßen

Kim

500

Para el precio que tiene es un buen bugui, quizá para ser mejor le falta flotabilidad (densidad) que dan los de la gama superior. Pero para olas de menos de 1,5 que es para lo que está especificado, la relación precio calidad es, seguramente insuperable.

Buena tabla

Es una buena tabla, resistente y desliza muy bien por el agua. Tenemos la gris-roja y la morada-azul y las llevamos con la mochila y es comodísimo. La hemos usado con mucho oleaje y ha aguantado bien.

Size guide / how to choose the right bodyboard size?

The size of the bodyboard directly influences its stability and ease of handling. It must be suited to the size of its user. This 500 Bodyboard is available in 4 sizes, depending on the height of the user: Size 38" if you are between 4'5" and 5'1" tall Size 40" between 5'1" and 5'7" tall Size 41.5" between 5'7" and 6'1" tall Size 43.5" taller than 6'1" A bodyboard that is too small will not be buoyant enough, and you will miss the waves. A bodyboard that is too big will be hard to handle.

At radbug, we design products for 4 levels: novice, beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

- Novices: Up to the navel, no fins, small waves < 20", propulsion by pushing your feet on the ground and riding the wave to the shore. For a 1st wave-riding experience (bodyboard with grips). - Beginner: Gentle turns in waves up to 40", propulsion with fins. A must for learning to bodyboard. - Intermediate: Waves up to 5', more speed, and the beginning of tricks (360°, El Rollo, etc.). - Advanced: All types of waves, command of tricks, even aerial: ARS, 360°, tube...

Designed to be used for intended sizes and conditions: intermediate level.

This bodyboard is equipped with a high-density slick, a dense EPO foam core (66.1/m3), 2 fiberglass stringers, and a new 4.5 oz EPE coating. This build offers good responsiveness and stability under nominal conditions. If the waves are > 5', choose the 900 bodyboard with a PP core that is denser, more resistant to shocks and makes for better landings. Wear the other breakage can be repaired. Ask on the Internet and in our stores.

Did you know? the use of fins lets you catch 2 to 3 times more waves!

When the water is higher than your belly button, it is very complicated to catch waves without fins. You can no longer push off with your feet, and paddling with your arms is often not enough. We have observed that with fins, you will catch 2 to 3 times more waves and have more fun! Fins allow you to move faster and considerably increase propulsion when taking take-off. Fins: Do not forget!

To catch waves, you must be correctly positioned on the bodyboard.

The pre-formed deck shows the right positions for the hands and elbows. The nose bumps on the front allow for a better grip. As you catch the wave, both hands are at the front. To turn left, keep your left hand in front (hand, elbows, and shoulders aligned, arm at 90°) and move your right hand along the rail right up the middle of the board. Align your left leg with the left rail to stay in the same direction. Do the opposite to go right.

Recommendations for avoiding chafing and having the best grip on your board.

You should be lying flat on the bodyboard when catching waves. Be sure to wear a long-sleeved anti-UV top or a wetsuit to avoid chafing on your arms and torso. We recommend you apply wax to the top of your bodyboard - especially on the front hand position, on the sides, and under your torso - for the best grip (sold separately in the surfing aisle). Do this for each session.

Safety and behavior rules for the water - part 1.

Bodyboarding is a fantastic sport, but one that requires everyone to respect certain basic rules to preserve the safety and enjoyment of all. 1- Ask questions and observe the characteristics of the spot: current, rocks, tides, the size of the waves and the crowds, etc. 2- Don’t overestimate your level, and go for an easier spot if your skills aren’t on par with the conditions. 3- Use suitable equipment: Leash, fins, and board in good condition, suitable wetsuit.

Safety and behavior rules for the water - part 2.

4- Respect the rules of right of way on the waves: Right of way goes to the person closest to the peak. 5- Follow the direction of the wave when moving toward the peak to keep from cutting another boarder off. 6- Use fins if the water is above your hips. 7- If you’re not using fins, it’s recommended you keep to a supervised area. Lifeguards can tell you where these are. 8- Bodyboard in a group.

Do not leave out in direct heat.

When not in use, keep your bodyboard out of the sun or temperatures >122°F. Protect your board by using a cover, putting it under a parasol, in the shade, or under a light-colored towel to keep the heat away. Never leave it in a car in direct sunlight. Leaving your board exposed to too much heat can cause blisters or bubbles to form on it, or even cause warping.
