After a long career as a competitive bodyboarder, winning over 30 events and competing around the world, in 2003, British bodyboarder Rob Barber decided to launch the worlds first Bodyboard holiday company. Barber says: “I was working for ThreeSixty Bodyboard Magazine and a big part of my job was to organise trips for pro bodyboarders to go on photo shoots – I loved putting them together and I decided that it shouldn’t just be the pro bodyboarders having all the fun”.
I set about the mission to offer bodyboarders of all abilities the chance to enjoy the best bodyboarding locations in the world, backed up with the best coaching and guiding.
The company now offers 16 different bodyboarding locations across the world with every conceivable bodyboarders taste and budget catered for. With new riders being welcomed on to the coaching weekends in Cornwall, England and top level riders being challenged to tackle the worlds best waves in the Mentawai Islands in Indo and something for everyone else in between.
“We make it our mission to find the best bodyboarding spots in the world, that cater for a wide spread of abilities. We organise quality accommodation, transfers, guiding, awesome places to eat, excursions and have a total focus on the crew scoring the best waves during their holiday with us,”Rob commented, which sees guests improve their riding in the most perfect conditions…
Destinations now include England (multiple coaching weekends in Newquay, Croyde, etc), Wales, Ireland, Portugal, Morocco, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, California, Bali & Mentawai Islands.
The trips range from one to up to three weeks long, some include multi-country holidays like our tours through central America, to european beach breaks, secret Morrocan spots and new wave garden adventure at Surf Snowdonia in Wales.
Barber commented: “Our aim is to welcome bodyboarders of all abilities to the worlds best waves and epic locations, we offer coaching for all levels, video feedback, photography and guiding at all of our locations. Each rider is treated as an individual and we take any logistics stress out of the trip. Great accommodation, epic culture and tried and tested waves in each location. Take a look at our feedback here for an idea of what people think of our trips”.
Rob continued, saying “Bodyboarding has been a life long passion of mine and helping other riders get the absolute most out of the worlds best bodyboarding destinations is our primary aim. Creating life long memories and sharing epic sessions is the number one goal for every trip!”
