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 skimboarding happens 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.  It’s shape is more similar to a boogie-board than it is a surfboard as it is on the shorter side.  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’s slowly drifting away from you, going horizontal to the shoreline.  And then running after the moving board, you jump on with both feet and gliding along the water.  The more you do it the better you’ll get.  Practice makes perfect. And it’s really fun!
