Thank you for visiting our site! First of all please be patient with us because not only are we a new site but we are also new to the world of developing websites. But we are currently speaking with several of the best companies in skimboarding in hopes to bring fellow skimboarders great information on new products as well as great deals and other news. So please take a look around, give us some tips on the forum page. We hope you enjoy!
What is Skimboarding?:
Skimboarding (or skimming) is a water/ boardsport in which a skimboard is used to glide across the water's surface. Unlike surfing, skimboarding begins on the beach by a rider "running" and dropping the board onto the thin wash of previous waves. Skimboarders then use their momentum to skim out to breaking waves, which they then catch back into shore in a manner similar to surfing. Another aspect of skimboarding is 'flatland', which involves performing tricks derived from skateboarding such as ollies and shove-its on the wash of waves without catching shore breaks.
