Why not just take a few hours and drive up to Aliso or 10th and watch the guys skimming there? Leave the board at home and I gaurantee you'll catch on. I'd never ridden waves on a skimbaord, but after watching for a few minutes, I was able to do it myself.

wow, I don't think people should accept pay to help someone else out to skim, atleast in an informal way as it would be...

Leave posts there when you're going and stuff about you and we'll see you at the beach. Don't be afraid to ask anyone for tips on anything, either. Everyone around La Jolla is friendly, don't be shy :). Marine St, Windansea, The Wall. Either of those, just observe and practice. You'll get the hang of it in no time.
