"just run, throw and jump" they say. it seems that skimboarding is as easy as just doing that.one of the most usual activity that you'll be seeing in Boracay is skimboarding. this boardsport requires a beach that has a flat surface where the board can smoothly slide and Boracay has it.according to wikipedia, this sport is believed to have originated from Laguna beach in California around 1920. it's now becoming more popular in the Philippines. i've seen some people doing skimboarding in Bantayan island when i was there last May.the board used for this is thinner than the usual board used for surfing and other boardsport. a skimboard usually cost between P1,500 - P5,000 (around $30 - $100) . but you can buy the ones locally made at a cheaper price.if you want to try it, you can just approach some of the enthusiast and they can lend it to you for a while. others also allow you to use it just for P100 ($2). they can also teach you the basic.it requires a lot of practice to master it because it's not just about running, throwing the board and jumping on it. you need balance, timing and focus. once you've mastered it, you can already do some special moves like boarding on it upside down or at least jump over a ramp.for people who has a sporty soul, is it worth trying? yes. season of advent begins today! tomorrow is another month and how to best celebrate it? go to Anilao. i'll be dropping by your blogs tomorrow night.
