However the trouble with surfing is that you need to carry round a huge great surfboard – a little tricky when you are on the tube in rush hour.
So full marks to Boys Stuff for bringing to the UK the world’s first inflatable bodyboard.
Apparently the £49.95 S3 Senior Surfster is a top quality bodyboard, that has been tested on the beaches of Australia’s Gold Coast; the world’s premier surfing beaches!
It is apparently high durable too a high-denier nylon outer layer and a PVC inner shell.
Needless to day it folds up neatly too so you can stuff it in a bag or even take it with you on a plane.
All you’ll need then is some decent British weather…
