    Nobody really understand what skimboarding actually is and has become. It isnt just running and chasing your board down the beach. A great way to describe it would be a combination of surfing while using skateboarding tricks. Running out to the waves and riding them back to shore.

    That looks like SO MUCH FUN!!! The waves look kind of big for me. I'd like those bunny waves the gulf has, toofpaste. :)

    The shots are really good at capturing the moment, especially the one where he's sideways in the middle of the air.

    BTW, if you know stuff about this, is it harder or easier to balance on that or a surfboard?

    Surfboard is def. harder, balance is huge with surfing, and IMO it takes a lot more time to get used to. Skimmin is a lot more basic although at times, depending on the size of the waves it can be tricky too. As far as tricks goes...then skimmin might be harder because they incorporate alot more tricks...like the OP stated...its almost like skateboarding. Both need to be taken slow, but like most things you catch on quick.

    Cool. Skimming is on my list. I don't wanna do tricks though, I just wanna surf on one. But since I've never even seen the ocean before, I think that might be a prerequisite...

    This, and snowboarding... Anyway, great set, OP!!!
