Surfing England Tips and helpful information
Skateboarding + surfing = a lot of fun!
Skimboarding is a board sport, in many respects, much like surfing, but it also combines that with some elements of skateboarding. A skimboard is a shorter, rounder surfboard that you drop onto the thin wash of waves and jump on. You can also use it to get out to the regular waves as a surfer does.
Skim boards are similar to skateboards in that once you jump on you can do tricks that skateboarders will recognise, like ollies. Decathlon has a number of skimboards available to choose from, including models for kids and adult boards. Some are made from foam, making them lighter and easier for beginners to practice with, while the more traditional styles are wood and material.
