Kite Skimboarding in South Padre

Postby AirPadre » Fri May 28, 2010 1:54 pm

Hey Guys,

Take a look at our news item about kite skimboarding and the positive effects it can have.
Let me know what you think of the write up on our website!
Got anything to add as to why people might use a skimboard while kiting?

Skimboards are bread to perform in small surf.


May want to change that to - Skimboards are designed to perform in small surf.

You might want to note that the flat rocker is the real key to lightwind performance. My skim is 130 x 50cm and my normal TT is 140 x 40cm - not that much difference in area, but the skim is flat which makes it great for lightwind compared to the TT.

I would also add a video so folks can see a skim in action and really understand what it's about.

Good article.... :D
