Conclusion:

Keep in mind also that the material of the board is important. The 2 main types of materials used for bodyboards are Polypropylene foam (PP) and Dow Polyethylene foam (PE).

PE has been used to make bodyboard cores for many years and offers outstanding flex, excellent projection and remarkable all round performance in colder water conditions.

PP boards are stiffer and lighter than the PE, but when stringer they can be can too stiff for a lot of riders in cold water conditions. There is also a newer material which incorporates both PP and PE foams in multi layers.
