I was wondering where all the Wavesport Foamies were coming from at CB. Went to Costco, 8 footers $99.00. Bought a Morey Boogie Mach 9TR for my wife for 25 bucks. Saw same bodyboard for 99 at a local surf shop. I support local as much as possible, but hard to pass up a good deal. OP: daughter looks like a champ!

I too am a proud dad of a foamer. I got my son started at 5 years old. He is now 6 and doing quite well. Here are a few pics of him. The board is a 6 ft soft tech by Tom Carrol I think. Who knew that the gulf was actually good for something. Its was 1-2 ft and going off yesterday, by his standards anyway.
I honestly teared up on his first wave he caught. He rode it through the trough and into the shorebreak, then stepped off. I was amazed. The flex fins are great for learners for sure. I rode it once and it was pretty fun actually. Way to go OP, I love them too. What better gift can you give a child than the gift of surf!

My girlfriend came to visit the beginning of this month and you think I set her on my fiberglass board so she could crack her skull open on it? Give me a break.

You got it, Sunset beach, our home break! If any of you want to get your young ones started here is a great idea. I got a new 6'9 cannibal for bigger surf. I had it hanging from the ceiling along the wall in the living room. I started taking it down and putting my son on it when he as 2. I had the fins out so I would slide it around on the carpet while he tried to stand on it. After about 3 short sessions he was hooked. Every evening when I came home from work he would point up to the board and say surf. It got to where he was wearing me out every night. Needless to say I got quite a few knee dings on the board before it ever even got wet. The end result? When I pushed him into his first wave at 5 years old, he rode it all the way in and wanted more. We have had about 6 sessions in ever increasing surf up to shoulder high on him! This goes along with a LOT of swimming in the pool to keep his strength up. I also push him from one end of the pool to the other while he stands on the foamy. Great training. Keep your kids surfing!

I'm sure we have. I have been surfing there since 1976. I am currently riding a rich price transformer II and my son has the 6 ft soft tech. Say hi if you see us! Thats pretty good that you can recognize our break from those 2 pics. Maybe the crappy surf? haha. Have a great day.
