Skimboarding | Club Fanø

Skimboarding is a fun activity for anyone who loves water. It requires no special skills and can be enjoyedd by both children and adults of all ages.

It is a kind of surfboard but is used at the water's edge in very shallow water. Rindby Strand is perfect with a wide stretch of water with only 5-10 cm deep water.

The skimboard is smaller than traditional surfboards and have no finns. Skimboarding is a bit like skateboarding. Once you have learned to balance, you can do some of same tricks that you do on a skateboard. When one has become a little experienced or has other surfing experience, skimboards can also be used for waves

Once you have developed your skills or are an experienced surfer you can also try the skimboard on waves. You use your momentum from the beach to skim to the first breaking waves, that you catch and surf back like you do in classic surfing. But of course, much smaller waves as it is very close to land.

Try this fun watersport with our instructor. You learn the basic skill and then, go for it.
