The Skimboard And Its Associated Activities

By Paul White

For those who enjoy board-based sports, such as skateboarding and surfing, they’ll find much to like in skimboarding. It is, in fact, a mix of those two previously mentioned sports, combining the best aspects of them both and creating a new activity that can be somewhat easier in certain aspects, while maintaining the technical complexity of both. It has proven to be very popular in Southern California and in Mexico, where some of the best hotspots have become renowned around the world to skimboarders. Here is some information about riding the skimboard.

How Do You Go About Skimboarding?

Simply, it’s using a skimboard (a smaller type of surfboard) to glide across a water’s surface. However, it can be somewhat expanded, as some skimboarders can also go on sand. Furthermore, it can be categorized into two sections.

The easier of the two, flatland skimboarding is a lot like riding a skateboard, only in the shallow waters of a river or the sea. A skimboarder starts on the beach, then catches the wash of a wave and glides across the wash of the wave. From here, they can carry out tricks and other technical movements, akin to skateboarding. Normal skimboarding is identical in the process, but they catch waves back to the shore again and is the harder of the two types.

The Dangers

It is very possible to become injured while skimboarding. However, like all activities, it depends on how safe you practice and perform. If you get training and practice in a safer environment, then the experience will save you from harshly learnt lessons. Simple obstacles, like rocks, can become deadly if you slip or hit it with the board. Furthermore, though drowning incidents are reduced because skimboarding is heavily focused in the shallow areas, it is fully possible to hit the bottom and cause further injuries.
