Skimboarding 2008 session 01 — with Aya! [video] [photos]

It was a very late start to the skimboarding season this year, but I finally made it out to Chigasaki for my first skimming session of 2008. Usually I start in early to mid-May. However, cyclo-camping became the new rage this spring, thus a late skimboarding season start.
It was Aya’s very first time to skimboard! She is a surfer and snowboarder, so she got the basics down impressively fast.

The conditions weren’t that good this time, but we were both able to manage some decent rides anyway. We learned that due to the typhoon last September, offshore conditions changed so that Chigasaki is not likely to get good waves again anytime soon. So I am thinking to, perhaps heretically, switch to another beach!
