Skimboarding

Yes, that’s right, skimboarding.  Not until a few years ago did this activity become popular which is maybe why some haven’t ever heard of it.  It’s like surfing but different because you ride a skimboard along the shore.  As we all know, surfing takes place in the ocean’s waves, sometimes in deep parts of the sea or barrier reefs. Instead of taking such great risks, skimboarding is a safer alternative.  

 

In Coronado there are several surf shops where you can buy or rent a skimboard.  The shape is more similar to a boogie-board than it is a surfboard.  It's nearly half the length of a surfboard, and smaller than a surfboard  A skim board typically is made of wood, shaved down until about an inch thick.  Its soft and smooth surface makes it comfortable to ride with bare feet.

 

I am certainly no expert on skimboarding but basically what you do is place the skimboard on the water where it is only a couple inches deep.  You then push the board with your hand or foot so that it slowly drifts away from you, going horizontal with the shoreline.  And then, running after the moving board, you jump on with both feet and skim along the water at a faster speed. The more you do it the better you get.  Practice makes perfect. And it’s really fun!
