Hello all fellow bodyboarders,
I was just wondering if it is alright to use one bodyboard fin. I have one fin because my other one fell of in the water.
Thanks in advance

Actually it's really irritating.

1 leg has superpower, the other feels like you have no foot.

Catching waves is difficult - its hard to paddle with your arms when you can't balance on your board properly.

Then there's the leg cramps from over compensating...

Whichever fin is missing in the deep blue yonder, cut off the corresponding leg above the knee. Then there will be no issue and you will not be missing out on a fin.

Become a dropknee bodyboarder and the single fin will look way cool.

I will assume that the original post is not a smnmntll bait and will answer as follows:
When I was at school me and a mate, both of us being short of money, shared a set of flippers, one each, for bodysurfing. They worked fine. It's even easier with bodyboarding.

BTW, if you are short of funds, an old pair of stockings wrapped around the flipper and your foot will help save them from falling off. Otherwise velcro straps (called flipper savers) from a surf shop if you have more money.
