does anyone know if a sandskimmer would double as a wakesurfing board. from the looks of it they are about have the price and a lot bigger selection. <BR> <BR>Tell me what you think.

well lets hope it works. just won an auction for a 51" Meyer skimboard. with a little luck it might come for the weekend

We tried a skimboard, but the one we had flexed a good bit and we were afraid that it would break.

Zap skimboards is the manufacturer of phase five wakesurf boards, if I am not mistaken. If you have a decent foam skimboard, it should work fine. Alliance did an article on it once....

one way to find out... try it out and report back!

Victoria Skimboards is a huge Skim Board Factory, as Well as Phase 5. <BR>A skimmer is the only thing to ride for Wake Surfing. The ride and tricks are unlimmited. <BR>Skim Boards rip as wake surfboards! <BR>Don't let anyone tell you different. <BR>That's why all the best riders are riding skim boards.
