Skimboarding is alike to surfing, but it starts on the beach with the 3 steps run, drop, and slide. With skimboarding, you need to perform an excellent balance on a board using waves for presentation adventures or enjoying flat skim experience. However, skimboards are typically smaller and rounder than a regular board used for surfing. Another difference is, when surfing, the waves might give you momentum toward the seashore. Meanwhile, when you are skimboarding, you build your momentum by floating across those breaking waves along the seashore.
