What is a skimboard?
Skimming is a surf sport born in the United States and in Polynesia in the 1930s. It is a lifeguard who discovered this sport by chance while sliding - on the edge of the beach - on his surfboard then broken. The term "skim" means "to skim" or "to skim", it designates the action of making the board glide at the level of the water in the foam which is on the edge. Although skimming requires a certain amount of control, its goal is simple: to surf a wave by launching yourself from the beach. However, this sport can also be practiced on lakes. In France, skimboards began to be seen on Basque beaches in the early 1960s. The board looked like a disc and was called "rondo".
Today, skimming is a sport in its own right, so skimboards are becoming more and more sophisticated and robust. The skimboard is a much shorter board than the classic surfboard, it does not have a drift, but can reach speeds higher than those reached by a surfer. The principle is simple: the faster you run to launch the board, the longer the distance you will cover and the more you will have to show a great sense of balance.
