Body Boarding on Maui: Body boards are fun for pools and playing in small waves at swimming beaches. Kids (and adults) can have fun catching small waves, at many of the south shore swimming beaches. We do not recommend body boarding at the main Surfing spots unless you have a lot of experience body boarding. We have different sized body boards available too. Body boards come with a wrist leash. Body boards are not lifesaving devices, and swimming ability is essential.
