Skimboarding on the Gulf of Mexico at Green Key. Low tide seems to be a better time to skimboard, lots of exposed beach. According to this expert the bigger the board the better.
Skimboarding has been around since 1920 starting in California. At local beaches on the gulf skimboarding seems to attract the younger crowd. The waves are mild and predictable. Most of the sport is done along the shoreline.
Four tips for skimming.
1. Wax your board
2. Run don't jump
3.Stand correctly
4. Practice, practice, practice
