Bo-Toys Body Board Review
The Bo Toys Body Board made its debut at #5 on our list of Best Boogie Body Boards on the market, and for good reason.
As mentioned in our formal review, one thing we really like is the aesthetic design of the board, and the fact that it comes in so many different colors.
The main board color being featured is with a primary color of forest green with a blue splash design on the bottom left-hand corner. There are also three other color ways ; ocean blue as the primary color with a green splash design, hot pink as the primary color with a green splash design, and firetruck red as the primary color with a white splash design on it.
The Features and Evaluation of Material
The first feature of note with this board is the fact that it is 41 inches in length. Most of the other boogie boards on the market that were potential contenders for our list of best boogie boards tended to be under 40 inches, and around the 30-35-inch region. This boogie board is also very light in weight, coming in at only 1.5 pounds, which is very convenient for small children, as you don’t want to purchase a board that would be too heavy for them.
The compact nature of the board is a huge bonus, because it allows for it to possess more functionality when being used. There are 60-40 rails that have been placed on the board as well. For those who are unfamiliar with this concept, the 60-40 rails allow the board to be turned or controlled at various speeds, which is yet another thing that is essential for enhancing safety on the beach. You don’t want to risk the chance that your board may crash into another individual, because you were unable to control its trajectory.
If it hasn’t been stated already, it must be mentioned that the board’s compact feeling is another big bonus for children. While it is very light, and the length is long, the board is designed in such a way that provides stability to the rider, so they won’t have to worry about the board just ‘flying up’ from beneath them. It also is not in any danger of being blown away by the wind, although it is still a lightweight object, so if the winds are strong enough then that should always be considered as a possibility as well.
Another great feature of this board is the material used to create it. It comes with an EPS core, which is bonus on a boogie board. For those who do not know, EPS stands for (expanded polystyrene) and it refers to the material which the board is made from.
The board also comes with heat lamination technology. This is extremely useful in increasing the overall durability of the board. As mentioned earlier in our article of Best Boogie Boards, it is essential that the board have a long term of durability for anyone wishing to ride on it. This also helps increase the overall speed at which the board can travel, which is a huge plus. The enhanced maneuverability that is accompanied with this feature is a huge bonus as well.
Another thing that makes the boogie board as durable as it is, would be the incorporation of the High-Density Polyethylene (HPDE) to create the bottom of the boogie board. This material allows the board to be more slick, so that it can function better. It is superior to other materials that inferior boards use. This feature is one of the better aspects of the board, as it allows more resistance to various wave conditions as well. You won’t have to worry about your child being subject to unpredictable and unorthodox currents, if you happen to be out boogie boarding on a day when the weather is unpredictable.
One more aspect of the board that cannot be understated, is the quality of the leash and wristband that is attached to the board. This is something that is of note to any boogie board purchaser, especially if you are looking to get the board for a child. You want to make sure that the board’s wrist strap is not easily ‘destroyable,’ or made of weak material that can snap, in order to ensure your child’s safety. Thankfully, the one on this boogie board more than thoroughly passes the test, and for that reason, definitely impresses us.
In conclusion, this board is easily one of the better boards that one could purchase on the market today. If you have the opportunity, and the money and you need to buy a boogie board, then we would absolutely recommend that you consider this board first.
