Who Makes The Best Skim Board?

Ever since I can remember riding boards of all kinds, it’s always been very important to me to be riding the best. That’s why I am currently riding the new Exile Carbon. This board rides very fast and gives the feeling that you are actually being propelled into the waves. I remember back in the days riding glass wrapped foam core boards which is fine if you 10 and then gradually saving up money and buying new boards. From glass wrapped to carbon, I feel you need the right equipment for the job.

I’ve rode almost all brands out there, I think I’ve owned close to 5 different vics, getting them fixed every time they would snap, sometimes snapping three times in different spots on the board. I really feel this new Exile is the best, and I hope it holds up for a couple years.

Take our poll (it's above this post) and check the board you like most.

Thank you, SDSS!!!

I leave you with a Mini Movie from the pro skimboarder Brandon Sears, a production by exile skimboards.

You Can Skim Anywhere!

Big ups to team NVP and AkwaIndustries for exposing their style of skimming to the world. If you don’t know now you know!

Scott Vizzusi, Chris Feulner, and a handful of other shredders are skimming pools, lakes, man-made sliders, and anything else they can think up. I mean what a way to skim in the winter when the ocean Is freezing and the waves aren’t the best. It might be time to cruise up to Granite Bay and see first hand how sick the skim scene is up there.
Also check out akwaindustries for the new interview with BC new blood Cory Johnston. Sick styles!!

Best Places To Skimboard in San Diego

Being a skimboarder and having lived in San Diego for a few years now, I have search the shores for the best skimming locations. Believe it or not SD actually has some pretty good spots. Below I have listed my favorite skimboarding locations.

La Jolla Cove: just in front of La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Arts. Down the cliffs. Great spot, no crowds, skim during high tide for best conditions. Sometimes the wave will rebound of south wall for a great side wave. Similar to West Street in Laguna.

Marine St./La Jolla: down the twisting roads of South La Jolla is Marine st. known for its shore-breaking pounders, this spot is great during high tide. If you can catch it during a strong south swell it is like our own Aliso Beach.

Tamarack/Carlsbad: My home break. Everything i could ever ask for but only during high tide. Long stretch of beautiful beach, shore breakers, and beach goers. Be careful during summer months because the crowds get pretty large. If you are looking to paddle out and catch some waves then this spot is excellent during low tide.

Please add any skimming locations that you know of in San Diego that I might have missed...
