Good waves in this are aren't an issue of where, but when. If there actually is a wave, it's all pretty much the same. Some sandbars handle the small stuff better than others but on the body board I don't know. More sand generally collects near piers and jetties, so can't go wrong there.
The aggro posts... the mid-atlantic region is the most active forum... but the least active coast... correlation? ME THINKS SO.
Some of the best bodyboarding (and best bodyboarders) that I have ever seen is in the reefs of Rincon and Aquadilla areas of Puerto Rico. Wait for the fall, save up your dough from skipping alimony payments, and go get some barrels!
Sorry to hear about the divorce... Thats a bummer, but yeah good luck trying to get someone to cough up their favorite spot on a public forum on the internet! Really? Oh well, I agree tennessee is real nice this time of year.
And to throw in my spare change, I liked dudes idea about satellite map and day trip.....sounds like fun, or at least a good "how everything went wrong" story. Good luck.
