This IS Skimboarding

I tell folks that I've recently picked up skimboarding as a hobby... Sadly most folks think of the 12 year old kids at the beach on the flat water, and shake their heads at me wondering about my pedigree.

I've found the perfect video to explain it to the masses:



https://vimeo.com/41384162

And now for my current family photo:



I originally took it up because surfing took me too far from the beach and family (daughter always clinging to me) and the boards were bulky to drag everywhere. I hate just sitting on my *** at the beach, so I had to pick up a sport. This fit the bill, and I've enjoyed it ever since.

I'll let folks know the next time I'm down at the cape or what not if anyone in the area wants to give it a try...

I don't get it. How is this different from surfing? It looks like the same thing, just closer to the beach.

It's pretty popular around here. The waves aren't big enough for surfing usually.

So skimboarding is like surfing's little brother.

That's pretty awesome.

I built my first skimboard in 6th grade. Tons of fun, I wish I still had pics of that board.

I've been skimming for years. Love it. Never go to the beach without my boards!
