Skim-Style Boards [FIG. 02]
Skim-style boards are shorter, with a thinner profile and smaller fins. While anyone can ride these boards, they tend to be more suited to advanced surfers looking for a loose, more playful feel, who like to pop shuv-its and ollies. Smaller, lighter riders also can be well-suited to skim-style boards, because they don't carry as much speed and won't have surfers riding into the swim platform.
