Skimboard – A new way to surf
Have you thought about that it could be fun to surf on the water, but don't really have the courage to throw yourself into windsurfing, kitesurfing or the original surf. Then maybe Skimboarding is for you. Skimboards are used at the water's edge where the water is shallow and flat. That's why Fanø's fantastic long flat beach is perfect for surfing and learning skimboard tricks.
The skimboard is smaller than the traditional surfboards, and is without fins. The board is used to glide across the surface of the water. It's actually a bit like skateboarding. Once you have learned how to balance on the board, you can practice doing some of the same tricks that you can do on a skateboard.
When you have become a little experienced or have 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 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 lesson, you will learn the basic techniques in skimboarding and get started. How skilled you become is up to your own physical abilities.

Who is Club Fanø?
My name is Sylvia Berges Hidalgo and I have a small family company that started in 2016 with excursions and tourist activities for children. Since then, we have continuously expanded the number of activities, so that we now also have plenty of beach and water activities, such as block kart, kite-landboarding, kitesurf. In 2022 we took over the company Kites & coffee, which also did beach activities, but is mostly known for its shop with kites. We now have 2 shops with a large selection of kites for children and adults, for the beginner and the expert.

Can you see seals?
Yes, Fanø is one of the best places in Denmark to see seals. They are everywhere and can even be seen in the harbor in Nordby.
The most spectacular place to see seals is Galgerevet, where in the summer there are several hundred seals, both the common spotted seal and the rarer gray seal. We do walks on the seabed to Galgerev most of the year.
Can all ages participate?
Almost all of our activities are for the whole family. This applies to seal safaris, block art, one-wheelers, kiteland boarding and the creative activities. City walks are probably mostly for adults and older children, and kitesurfing is also mostly for young people and adults. We have something for all ages.
