So my friends have been into it for awhile, and I finally gave it a whirl, and, to be blunt, I ****ing love it.

Feel embarassed at the beach though because there are some good ass skimboarders down here in South Florida...

Anywho, any skimmers out there?

I want to ask for my own board when Christmas and my birthday come around, but I don't really know what to look for... any particularly inexpensive yet quality companies? Anything in specific I should look for in a board?

Don't give me the Epiphone of skimboarding companies, btw...

Ah, my mate has just got into it. He bought a skimboard a few weeks back, although I'm not sure whether he's any good at it.

We don't exactly have great beaches, waves or oceans here in England.

Down south, sure. On average, though, English beaches suck.

Yeah man, skimmings awesome. I found a board buried in the sand in NJ when I was like 7 and have been doing it ever since. I suck anyways though... I have no clue what company makes my board, seeing as I don't really take it all that seriously. I just bought one from the store in the town I visit for like 50 bucks.

When I used to go to the beach I had a slammer, but those are for littler kids. One brand that was noticeably better was something that started with an M. I think there was something about a hoghead.

So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

Epiphones are great. Perfect balance of cost and quality.

What did you want? the Fender of skimboards?


I disagree with your first statement, and I am in awe as to why you would spam my thread with so useless a post lol...

used to do it, prefer wakeboarding or surfing. Still it's great fun.
Try established brands jon, Ballin, Quicksilver and the such might do something.

Pardon my ignorance but I must repeat the question asked above. WTF is "skimboarding"?
Surfing on flat water? Sounds interesting.

Pretty much... it's mostly focused right around where the waves break on the sand

^ Yeah Victoria and Zap were recommended to me, my bro has an old Zap that he just gave me, and my friend uses a zap.

I was also looking at this brand called Exile, which seemed to have their **** together...

its fun if you can get it going. its surprising how many people get injured doing it though. i know a guy that got a broken wrist and some other dudes that got injured doing it. i guess people think the sand is soft but it can be a hard fall still if you slip hard. its pretty big where i live since we dont get a lot of good waves for surfing but every few weeks. but sorry i have no idea what the brands are. go to a surf shop and ask a worker.
