    Skimboarders: The Unsung Warriors of the Waves

    By How to Do Florida

    Hydroplaning along the water's edge and charging down the sand to rush the breakers are the unsung warriors of wave-riding. Don't confuse skimboarding with the foam boogie boards you can pick up at a convience store. Skimboarding has a professional circuit — and once you feel that rush from balancing atop a fraction of inch of water as the sand speeds beneath you with the wind in your hair, you'll understand why. With a small investment in a board and a little practice, you'll rule the beach.
