This is the first time that I ever heard of this kind of water surfing or water sports. This could be one of interesting and enjoyable kind of water surfing by the use of skimboards.
I am a Filipino and I am not used to this. However, I try to imagine how skimboard is used, which is similar to a surfboard but this one has no fins as mentioned, which sweep across the water's surface.
The users, I understand, will have so much skills, agility, and presence of mind to be the best.
By the way, for beach gear or beach products like skimboards, there are online retailer specialized in beach gear including chairs, umbrellas, water sports and wear if you just search them.
Interested skimmers may have the option to select what type of skimboards they are going to use such as wooden skimboards, fiberglass skimboards use of skimboards.
It is said the place like Laguna Beach, California is noted as the best place for skimboarding. Here in our place like the Philippines, Siargao in Mindanao is considered as the surfing place for there are big waves ideal for surfing games and Tanuan, Leyte is also considered as the skimboarding city of the country.
Now I know water surfing is another form of beach recreation. Everyone doing this water sports is secured in places where there are bodyguards keeping watch for them.
Dangers or accidents do happen. Skimboarders usually get hurt, have fractures and injured their lower limbs. It is therefore necessary for them to wear beach gear to protect themselves.
Preparation is a must also like holding a brief talk about shape and propose best position in riding on skimboard. And this should be conducted before the skimboarders go to shore to do surfing.
