When the sport really took off in the 80′s the unique image it projected was of strictly fun and goodtimes. Where surfing was littered with scandal and casualties in the 80′s the new sport was all about fresh smiling faces loving life on there Boogies which gave it a much broader appeal. It was mostly Bodyboarding Magazine that was behind the clean cut look . Today those endless grins are long gone and the image of the sport has caught up to and is on par with surfing in most ways.
