    How to Do Florida: Skimboarding

    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 after you learn how to skimboard, you'll understand why. With a small investment in a board and a little practice, you'll rule the beach.
