I can tell you now that skim surfing is the next best thing after surfing. I got to encounter one of these fantastic boards down on the beach the other day.
The basic technique is to run along the shoreline and throw down the board before jumping onto it to skim along the surface of the water. Yet I checked out the home of skim surfing at www.skimonline.com and realised that if you really get the knack of it you can use it almost like a proper surf board. I hope that this fantastic sport takes off over here in Europe like it seems to have in the States.
Here’s to much future skimming, and hoping santa reads my wish list.
