Not quite bold enough to try surfi ng? Unsure of bodysurfi ng? Consider BODYBOARDING , a hybrid of the two. Also known as BOOGIE BOARDING , bodyboarding was born in California in the early 1980s, and is easier to master than surfi ng. The brainchild of Tom Morey, the sport caught on quickly, and soon, Morey boogie boards and the special fi ns designed to go with them began appearing in local surf shops. Today, the equipment is easy to fi nd, and suitable beaches are plentiful.
KEĀLIA BEACH , just north of Kapa‘a on Highway 56, is a popular bodyboarding beach.
CAUTION: Keālia has dangerous rip currents and undertow. Talk to a lifeguard or local bodyboarders before taking the plunge. NUKUMOI SURF CO. 808-742-8019 101 things to do | ka u a‘i 30
