Smile HOW TO LEARN SKIMBOARDING...
Drop your skim board and step on while running to ride the wet sand on a smooth board, very fast.



Instructions





  • STEP 1: Hold the skim-board with one hand on each side. If you are regular footed, hold your right-hand slightly to the back of the board and your left more toward the front. Practice running while holding the board parallel to the ground.
  • STEP 2: Wait for the water from a wave to begin washing back into the ocean. Use this time to also check for any possible hazards. Once you're going it's hard to stop.
  • STEP 3: Begin running at an angle towards the ocean as the water is receding.
  • STEP 4: Drop the skim-board on the sand as you are running. You want to drop it in less than and inch of water, but not on dry sand. Drop the board while you are coming off your outside foot.
  • STEP 5: Step onto the tail of the board with your inside foot, and then step onto the front with your other foot. These steps should be the very next ones after dropping the board and should be in sync with your running pace.
  • STEP 6: Crouch low to keep your balance.




Tips & Warnings







    <LI class=tip>Make sure not push the board as you drop it down, or else you'll have to run to catch up with it. Skim-boards move very fast.


    <LI class=tip>Always step onto the board while you and it are travelling the same pace; leaping onto the board that is way ahead of you always results in poor balance and a sore behind.


    <LI class=warn>Be careful: Skim-boarding is more of a land sport than a water sport, and falling on the sand can hurt.
  • Skim-boarding must be done on a beach with few rocks, shells and especially, people.
