Flashback: So You Want a Good Chuckle?

If you want a good chuckle, check out the following bodyboarding gear from the '90s:

A hard bodyboard. Think surfboard in the shape of a bodyboard. It consisted of a polyurethane foam core covered with a high-density foam outer shell, which was coated in a clear automotive polyurethane paint. Sounds more like materials you would use on a space shuttle than you would on a boogie board.

Do you really need a strap to carry your board from the beach's parking lot to the beach? Really? With board bags already available, I can't really think how this strap would be functional, especially since it's designed to fit around only one shoulder.

And you thought I was joking about florescent-colored wetsuits.

Basically channels that you stuck on the bottom of your board like a sticker.

No explanation needed for this product; just sit back and chuckle.

Dare you guys to wear all of the mentioned 90's gears and paddle out at MB. Guaranteed to get respect in the line ups. LOL
