"Bodysurf means to forget your life issues. Imagine you are with your full body in a tube feeling the speed and the brutal sound of wave blasting."

The origin of bodysurf is unknown, however it might be possible that people were inspired to imitate wave-riding by animals such as dolphins and seals. We asked the guys at 5thAvenue Surfers to give us a little insight of what they're doing.
