WaveWrecker: New Cutting-Edge Bodysurfing Gear
In April of 2016, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, a breakthrough in bodysurfing technology became available to the public. The WaveWrecker gear for bodysurfers, solves two age-old challenges; sinking and steering while catching a wave. WaveWrecker surfing gear sport strategically designed fins boosting buoyancy and creative control as one attacks the wave.
Oral surgeon, Dr. Nick Gadler, had an aha moment while in his backyard swimming pool, playing with his son. He envisioned a wearable Boogie Board of sorts. After working for 6 years developing nearly 30 prototypes, this bodysurfing accessory has become a reality. Nick’s even taken the time and tremendous expense to patent the idea in multiple countries.
