"Boogie-Boarding!" Top 5 Page for this destination Del Mar Sports & Outdoors Tip by lmkluque
Del Mar Sports & Outdoors: 7 reviews and 8 photos
In the parking lot of Poseidon Restaurant, next to the Valet station, is a typical beach shack offering snacks and boogie-boards for rent.
On the north side of Poseidon's building is a pathway from the beach. The main lifeguard tower stands west of this path, and it is a simple task to reach the shack.
Boogie-boarding is much easier than surfing as you only need to lay belly down on the short styrofoam board and surf the waves. It's fun and worth trying out.
Equipment: All that is needed is a boogie-board and the nerve to try. Although nerve isn't really required, even the non-swimmer can do this.
The waves needed to have a fun ride are the smaller, shoreline waves and are rarely farther out than knee-deep water. So, if a fall off the board occurs, simply stand up and be saved.
The biggest risk is loosing the boogie-board after a fall. However, most boards are sensibly equipped with a leash that fits around the wrist. Of course, it is obvious to expect wrist burns.
