Skimboarding is a fun activity for anyone who loves water. It requires no special skills and can be enjoyed by both children and adults of all ages.
It is a kind of surfboard, but is used at the water’s edge in very shallow water. Rindby Strand is absolutely perfect with a wide stretch of water with 5-10 cm deep water.
The skimboard is smaller than the traditional surfboards, and is without fins. The board is used to slide over the surface of the water. It’s actually a bit like skateboarding. Once you have learned to balance on the board, you can practice doing some of the same tricks that you can do on a skateboard.
When one has become a little experienced or has other surfing experience, skimboards can also be used for waves. You use your momentum from the beach to skim out to the breaking waves, which you then catch back to land, similar to the classic surfing. However, typically much smaller waves as it still takes place close to land.
Try this fun water sport with our instructor. During the class you will learn the basic techniques of skimboarding and so on. How skilled you become is up to your own physical abilities.
