Skimboard

skimboard Splash

We have spent the last week in Kauai, Hawaii having a bit of a break from life.

Awesome time.

While sitting on the beach, a guy showed up with a skimboard and started carving the waves of Kalapaki beach. A skimboard is a wonderful way to turn rather small waves into a bit of fun.

He was having a good run at tossing parts of each wave this way and that.

But even the small waves can bite back…

Fortunately, spout over handle in the water leads to a relatively soft landing.

(Thanks, Corbin, for the correction!)

    Cool — but it is actually a skimboard. A wakeboard is towed behind a boat, ala water skiing.

    These are awesome pictures. I got married in Kauai back in April 2002. I absolutely loved the place and so different from the UK where I was born. I took my first surfing lessons in Halalei Bay while staying in Princeville. It was such a blast I’d love to try skimboarding (given I love Pool Skating).
