Improved Aquatic Body Board

improved aquatic body board

Inventor:
Gustavo Adolfo Acosta, Jr.

U.S. Patent:
# 7,074,098

Patent Summary

The present invention aims to provide a new Aquatic Body Board with enhanced maneuverability, speed and comfort having a tapered, upturned nose for maneuvering over rough seas. The board also features a concave valley extending along the length of the top surface to comfortably and securingly accommodate the body of the user. Concave channels on the bottom surface will aid to reduce friction with the water and at least one fin will aid stability and board maneuverability.

The present invention is easy to maneuver and comfortable for the user. The board is buoyant and light weight. Unlike a surf board, the aquatic body board allows the user to propel the board forward by kicking from behind as well as by paddling. The trailing end of the board is recessed for unrestricted user kicking action. The upper valley of the board is sloped downward toward the rear of the device enhancing positioning for kicking while securing the user's body to the board. The uplifted nose of the board helps avoid deadheading (front end sink). Leash attachment is provided on the rear end allowing the leash to be secured below the knee of the user freeing the upper body for enhanced paddling action.

Inventor's Notes

Good Day,

To set the record straight, may I take a moment of your time. The Aquatic Body Board or "Wave Arrow" was conceived because I felt that a hard, aeronautical board with fins for steering and a leash position that can be for your arm or leg was way over due for the serious minded body boarder. Nothing similar is or was on the market. I designed and implemented this wave tool for you and me. The "Wave Arrow" is basically a multi-hull three boards in one device for riding surf. Feel free to have your local shaper make you one; the design is patented which means no one can manufacter it without my express permission.
