    I learned to skim all on my own actually. My dad bought be my first skimboard when i was real little, it was a small woody from a tourist beach shop. Then about 2 years ago i started to skim real often and got more into it and i bought a L Wedge. Me and friend started to skim as often as we could and we just taught ourselves. We watched videos and just practiced alot. Then i figured it was about time to ditch the wedge and get something better. So about a year ago i go a L Exile S-glass Hybrid, and i have just been progressing ever since.
