Went wakeboarding today and after taking a beating from trying to learn a wake to wake 360 i busted out my skimboard. This skimboard is a $30 wooden off-brand board that i bought 6 years ago at a shop by myrtle beach, SC. A week ago i put a 4 year old byerly 2 inch fin on it. It is 34 inches long and 19.5 inches wide. I made a bet with my dad that if i could surf for at least 8 seconds (rodeo rules) without the rope he would pay for HALF of any board i wanted to buy. This was my first time ever trying wakesurfing so he didnt think it was possible. I got up on it first try and after about 4 tries i was able to let go of the rope and surf (for about 12 seconds) I'm so stoked cause now I can get any board and it will be affordable to me. Probably could have surfed longer if i had kept trying. Anyways just thought it was a cool story so i thought i should share it.
P.S. Any suggestions on a board are welcome. Also i was wondering if anyone has surfed any of the Walker project boards because they look sick and seem promising as far as performance. Any feedback?
