Amateur Team Rider

I picked up my first skimboard just about 2 years ago, and haven’t really been able to put it down since then. I’ve always loved sports, but skimboarding caught my attention in a different way. It is a challenging sport, there are no constants when it comes to conditions. The whole time you’re out skimboarding you’re on the edge of something so vast and unknown it is hard to comprehend. Yet, as skimboarders, we try every session to read what the ocean is offering us: wind directions, swell directions, slope, sand movements‚Ķ There’s so many different components that goes into skimboarding. Working with the ocean is humbling, it’s hard to not get addicted.

I live in Boca Raton, Florida and I skim all over south Florida, but my home beach is Palmetto. I ride a custom Apex, 53″ by 20″ with ¬†3/4″ thickness tapered to 5/8″ in the nose and tail. I love it for florida conditions because it’s just big enough to get me out there and back in without depending on the power of a wave, but it’s just small enough for doing more technical tricks.
