Summer days are all about finding the best way to have fun when the sea breeze kicks in Which is why the CrazyFly skim board has become so popular. It is purely designed for fun in light winds. (Or for skimming when theres no wind at all!)
The strapless set up provides unlimited possibilities for exploring new tricks and stance positions. You can put the fins on, which see the Skim performs very well upwind, even in super lightwind conditions. Or for a nice skatey feel its equally happy being ridden without fins. The Skim is also great fun in smaller waves, where you can carve them up or use them as kickers for strapless tricks.
Whatever your riding style or level is, the Skim is always fun to play with.
Our Skim board is produced with a full wood core, Multi Axial Fiber Glass construction and ABS sidewalls. This construction provides comfortable medium flex and the flat bottom shape ensures easy early planning and, with our ultra thin Razor fins, this board is really quick.
The Skim board features a beautiful transparent wood core design with funky graphics and comes complete with Razor fins and a self adhesive EVA footpad so you have the choice of riding strapless with a waxed deck, or of riding with the footpads.
