Fun In The Surf with the SurfSkimmer

by Nicole on June 12, 2013


Noah is just getting the hang of ocean swimming and is fascinated with surfing.  We live about 15 minutes from the beach and in the summer we go frequently.  Even when it’s 95 degrees and super humid inland it’s always tolerable at the beach! We used to go to a protected beach with a reef where the water is literally like a bathtub since he wasn’t the best swimmer.  This summer we are able to go to the regular beach and he was so excited for his SurfSkimmer to come to try it out!

The SurfSkimmer is the first of its kind product with Gripper Technology and an easily removable handle. It’s the perfect skimboard or bodyboard for an entry level action sports fan. The handle easily comes off so each of the boards has the ability to act as a traditional skimboard or bodyboard. While the big kids are out there shredding, now the little guys and girls can join the fun in a safe way with the removable handle…making moms and dads feel good!


Here is a cool video of a SurfSkimmer in action:

Noah had a blast trying out the SurfSkimmer.  He used it in pretty shallow water so he could get used to it.  He wiped out a few times but that was to be expected.  He is not the most coordinated child and he was able to figure it out within a few minutes and I loved that it was good exercise for him while at the beach! The SurfSkimmer seems to be very well made and durable and I had a large number of parents ask me about it while we were on the beach!

For more information, check out the SurfSkimmer on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and YouTube.

Ok, this thing is totally cool! I’ve seen people (teenage boys, mostly) do this on pieces of plywood at the beach for years. It looks like so much fun! It’s like taking running in socks on a wood floor and sliding to a whole new level! I didn’t know someone had come out with such a great idea- the handle probably makes for a much more successful and fun toy when there’s more control over the board. I’m definitely going to have to let my friend know about this for her son.
