Tyler Littlejohns invert

Bodyboard HQ team rider Alex Winkworth cleaned up at the wedge contest in Newquay today, taking out both the drop knee and open title. Conditions were close to out of control and with hot favourite Jack Johns to compete with Alex had a tough battle on his hands. With combinations of moves all the way to the beach Alex narrowly beat the favourite to take the title.

Alex is one of the most rounded bodyboarders in the UK and todays result showed that talent. We are stoked to have him on our team. Well done mate. Congratulations to all the other competitors including Olivia Smedley for taking the ladies title and Bodyboard HQ team rider Megan Penny for her 2nd place result.

Please excuse the poor quality of the shots, rain, poor light and mould in the lens made shooting pretty tricky…

Thanks to The British Bodyboard Club and the Bodyboard Depot for organising this event, also Maniac Bodyboarding for the support. Well done lads…

Took a trip up to Newquay yesterday to see some of the Tolcarne wedge bodyboarding contest. Two words, boogie city! packed with some of the best bodyboarders in the UK both competing and free surfing. The standard was great and it is so refreshing to see how the level of British bodyboarding continues to rise.

Here are a few shots of yesterdays action with more of todays to follow.

Christmas xmas at Bodyboard HQ bodyboarding shop

Hello everyone, it’s that time again where we like to get in touch with all of our customers, both old and new, to say merry xmas and a happy new year and thank you for your ongoing support over the last 12 months.

As some of you may have heard, we have moved location and we are now positioned right next to the beach in Portreath. The new shop is over twice the size and we now have so much more scope to do all the things we have wanted to do. The whole move has been a lot of work but things are now starting to really shape up into being the biggest and best bodyboard shop in the UK, possibly Europe

If you are looking for present ideas for yourself or your loved ones then we have some great suggestions for you below.

There are often things that we would love to receive but I don’t quite get around to buying for ourselves or wouldn’t necessarily go out and buy.
So if you’re getting stuck on what to buy the bodyboarder in your life (or why not treat yourself) we might be able to help.

Just so you know, our last day for collection is the 21st of December for delivery on the 24th of December.

Stocking filler ideas:
Looking for some great stocking filler ideas this crimbo? Here are some bodyboarding extras that help make life a little easier. Great ideas like the latest Keypod keysafe, a place to put your electronic car key whilst you are in the surf. Another great idea is the Northcore changing robe made from heavy weight towelling, perfect for keeping you warm and covered up whilst changing into and out of your wetsuit..
How about some bodyboarding fins? For those who have only been belly boarding this summer how about trying some fins? Swim fins will give you more propulsion to catch the wave so definitely a great present idea.

Winter wetsuit deals:
This year we have some great winter wetsuits in store that are simply as warm as they come. We have suits from Xcel, West & Alder and all suits over £150 come with a free pair of either top quality gloves, socks or a wetsuit cap plus free postage (that’s up to £30 worth of freebies)

Well folks, its that time of the year again. The Arica challenge bodyboarding contest is one of the best stops on the IBA tour. Super consistant waves with tons of power pound the reefs around this area. It always ends up a great contest with some of the biggest bodyboarding moves going down.

The contest starts on the 18th of May through to the 27th. You can watch the contest through the IBA website at


Check this great youtube clip to get you in the mood.

We will be watching it here at Bodyboard HQ, will you?

world tour bodyboarding contest 2012



We have just had word that the new delevery of 2012 NMD, VS & TOYS Bodyboards arrive next week. Boy, are we excited!

In the shipment will be the new NMD Dave Winchester and Ben Player parabolic PFS core boards. Our team rider Eldred Hawke had the pleasure of test riding the Winchester 41 PFS core but found it a bit too stiff with the 1.9 PCF EPP core so the new delivery will be a Beaded PP (Usually a bit stiffer than extruded PP) but with a core of only a 1.4 PCF density. The idea is to give a little bit more flex to the board in colder, cooler waters. This combination should give a bit more performance too.

There will be opertunities to test ride the Parabolic boards too so watch this space on how we plan to do this.

There will be some other great boards across all the ranges so even if your budget doesn’t stretch to the parabolic boards then there will be something here that will be perfect for you.

We also have many 2011 boards now at reduced sale prices that are damn near exactly the same build and performance as some of the 2012 models so don’t be afraid to ask if you want to save some hard earned cash.

Check our Facebook pages for the boards arrival.
