After my first visit to the beach in LA, I decided I needed to get a boogie board. I went in the ocean and the waves were NOTHING like waves on the East Coast. I nearly lost my bathing suit three times, and got completely knocked over several times. ‘Playing in the ocean’ is a bit more serous when you’re dealing with waves like that. So I decided it would be smarter to grab a boogie board and surf ’em.
I lucked out when at TJ Maxx two days later I found boogie boards for only $9.99. It was then Boog was born. Affectionately named by Steph, he only ended up hitting the waves twice. And it was a miserable failure both times. Nonetheless I would have liked to have taken him home with me so I could try it out here on the East Coast. Unfortunately two shipped boxes, one oversized suitcase, and two carry-on bags later there was no room for Boog. I rate that a 2. I saved a lot of money leaving him behind, and realistically I probably wouldn’t have used it again anyways. But seriously, pretty awesome board.
