Gordon, go to youtube and look for 'extreme kneeboarding' - may be better than skimboarding!

I've watched Skimboarders before, some of my hetero buddies are into that. Looks like fun for the no-wind days, but sometimes they get packed pretty hard onto the sand, too. Maybe good an advise to wear a helmet and pads, I dunno. Kewl guys if they are fit in it though!!

Try bodyboarding by chance. The water is deeper there and there are a plenty of ways to ride down a good wave.
