How to choose your bodyboard size
The size of the bodyboard directly influences its stability and ease of handling. It must be suited to the size of its user. As such, this bodyboard is designed for children weighing between 15 and 25kg, i.e. between 4 and 8 years old.
A bodyboard that is too small will not float enough so you will miss waves. A bodyboard that is too big will be difficult to handle.
Refer to the size chart to help you choose.
Not suitable for users under 40 kg. Only use in lifeguarded swimming areas.
Directions for use
This bodyboard is inflated by mouth. Inflate gently; an over-inflated bodyboard will not glide as smoothly and could become damaged if exposed to strong heat. While riding the wave, this bodyboard is used lying down. It is important to wear a long-sleeved UV protection top or wetsuit to avoid irritation on the belly and arms.
For added comfort, remember to push the valve into the bodyboard once it is inflated.
How to catch a wave with this product
Designed to catch and ride broken waves by the shore, this product is used where the child can touch the bottom, with the water below waist height. As a small broken wave passes (<50cm) the child pushes off using their feet, aiming towards the beach, and lies down on their belly on the bodyboard, with their hands on the handles, arms bent and legs stretched out behind them. It is not necessary to use fins.
Behaviour and safety
WARNING! Risk of injury due to the functional characteristics of this toy. Small parts - Danger of suffocation. Only for use in shallow water where the child can touch the bottom and under adult supervision. Particular care must be taken if there is wind and/or current. Safety equipment such as buoyancy aids or armbands are strongly recommended. Not suitable for use by children aged 3 or under. A leash can be added, available to purchase separately.
How to keep your inflatable bodyboard in good condition

- Not jump onto it in a swimming pool.

OLAIAN is the new Decathlon brand devoted to surfing, bodyboarding & skimboarding. This Basque-sounding name is inspired by the universe of our development centre in Hendaye, in the Basque Country. It is the contraction of OLA, as OLATU means wave and IAN, a Basque suffix meaning “inside”. At OLAIAN, we see a potential playground in every wave and we want each person to be able to improve whilst enjoying themselves, regardless of their surroundings and their environment.
