A group of skimboarders used a lawn mower engine to get towed into the surf.
The trick is not new, but it has made many people happy. Once and again, water sports enthusiasts adopt motor power to supply extra speed to their glides and, therefore, access new areas of the wave faster.
Surfers and windsurfers get towed into waves by jet skis; wakeboarders are generally pulled by the famous wake winch, a tool that has proved to be far better than many boats, especially in tricky natural environments.

Perry Pruitt claimed the 2018 Outer Banks Skim Jam, at Jeanette’s Pier in Nags Head, North Carolina.
The event had all sorts of weather, including onshore winds, small and medium-sized waves, and sunny skies. As a result, athletes had to adapt their rides to the existing conditions.
The OBX Skim Jam already is an institution by itself and is one of the key contests in the Skim USA Tour and United Skim Tour (UST) schedules.
