About Morey Boogie
Morey Boogie is the company that started it all! Founded by Tom Morey, the Morey Boogie brand was synonymous with bodyboards through the 1980s, and the legacy continues even today.

On July 7, 1971, Tom Morey invented the first bodyboard after he awoke one morning to see perfect waves but had no board to ride. He cut a 9 foot polyethylene foam blank in half, carved it into a rectangular shape with 45 degree Hot Curl style rails, and covered it with newspaper. After having a blast on his new creation, he eventually named it a "boogie board" and later trademarked the name Morey Boogie. After several years of business, Morey Boogie was eventually bought by Kransco to keep up with the overwhelming production demands. The company has since changed hands, first with Mattel in 1994 and Wham-O in 1998.

One of Morey Boogie's most significant contributions -- second only to the original invention of the bodyboard -- was the introduction of the slick bottom Mach 7-7 bodyboard. The Mach 7-7 eventually became the most popular bodyboard of all time, ridden by the vast majority of riders in the 1980s and forever influencing modern bodyboard design.
