Skimboarding: the power of the wake

A group of skimboarders and wakeboarders decided to get the most of wake surf waves to ride it at Boca Grande Pass, Florida.


The Phase 5 Wakesurf Boards team hit the sands of Englewood to catch the boat wake and ride it endlessly. The deeper water right off the shoreline provided the ideal scenario for what the riders were trying to do.

Skimboarders included Stephen Bradford, Justin Boisclair, Dave Armstrong, Max Smetts, Drew Danielo, Dave Scott, Justin Shock and Zach Smetts.

"We had a great time filming this and it's always great to break it up from all the lake riding and be able to kick it for a day on the beach", the team said.

Would you call this wake skimming, wake skimboarding or skim wakeboarding?
