The layout is sprightly, excellent photos, and advice on picking board(s), how to ride, emergencies including head injuries In italics, there's a bit of very British guidance "This is advice only and we recommend that people should undertake a professional qualification such as the SLSGB Surf Lifeguard award." I don't quite know how to translate that into US practice, but having your kid enroll in a Junior Lifeguard program isn't a bad idea. Surfers, including bodyboarders do significant numbers of rescues at beaches, as documented recently in Australia.
There's discussions of how to do it (and what to call everything) going from the very beginning "catching white water waves from standing" to advanced stuff like back-flips and drop-knee technique. There's accessories (yes, boards need wax and a rashguard/rash vest is a good idea), just a paragraph on swim fins, a useful half page of "wetsuit jargon." Cold water. If surfing's become a winter sport, so has bodyboarding. The one-page glossary is robustly international.
There's no mention of a category more or less unique to California, beater boards, intended to function more or less like surfboards, but soft, to evade bans on hard surfboards.
While brief, this book is the only one of its sort in English, and the current version is the fifth edition, which shows in the obviously careful text and graphic editing. It's a perfect, cheap way for a puzzled parent or an eager grommet to figure out what's going on, including the array of boards on the market, varying in what at first seem minor details.
