When I was young and impressionable we came across a car load of teenagers who had done this on Foxton Beach, the kid who was riding the boogie board had no skin on his back and down the back and sides of both his arms and legs.

Dad was a qualified first aider so we were sent to call the ambulance and he was trying to keep the guy wet and still.

We don't know if he survived, but the ambulance officers apparently told dad he was down to muscle on 40%+ of his body. 

Having seen the mess that was his body I have always been very, very strict about boogie boards and the like and how they are played with.
