From skimboarding to surfing

Post  seacielo on Mon Jul 14, 2008 2:52 pm

Do you think that most skimboarders will sooner or later shift to surfing? I mean seriously, I know people who make skimboarding as a step to surfing. The next thing I know, they completely don't care about skimboarding anymore. Like yeah, it's just another watersport lesser than surfing. Surfing is the "it" watersport.

What do you think? Do you have plans to shift? Question

Yes, surfing is the "it" watersport here in the Philippines. I would be a hypocrite if i say that i dont want to try it. But at the same time, we all know that mainstream acceptance here in the Philippines spells doom for any subculture with underground roots. Lets face it, surfing in our archipelago is a luxury reserved only for those who can.

So with that said, im sticking with skimboarding. I dont care if some people think of us skimboarders less compared to our surfer friends. At least i can sleep better at night knowing that im not in it because of the "pogi points". Wink

I think I'm going to stick with skimboarding too. I mean, I have a lot of respect for surfing. I also thank those people who invited me to surf, and those locals who really make effort to teach me. But hey, I fell in love with shore breaks. Besides, it's all about the passion. I don't just have enough heart for surfing. But hey again, I have respect for the sport. I love watching it though... and then ripping surfers, I guess. Hahahahaha long time ago though. I love giving Zinka to surfer friends... hehehehehe Paw kunin mo na Zinka mo! Besides, I share skimboarding with the wizard of Oz... hahahahah kaw talaga Johann... pakana mo tong wizardČ hahahahaha. peace...

What did i do cielo? term of endearment lng yan... hehehe im going to the admin window and change your name to dorothy... lol!


But going back to the subject at hand, i would agree that it all boils down to passion... As long as you give it your all with no ulterior motives, you get straight A's in my book...

may surf board ako at may skimboard ako. nabubulok lang yung surfboard ko kasi siguro wala masyadong magandang spot sa amin, wala masyadong malaking alon, wala masyadong wala, walang wala.. madaming rason.

yung skimboard ko, mga 8x na ata ako nagpalit kasi masaya, madaming spot, ok lng yung alon, laging mron, madami ung rason mgskim.. i rest my case.

skimboarding is the best water sport for me. i to have a surfboard a mini gun board pero d ko na ginagamit.im planing to sell it off na nga.mas nawiwili ako sa skimboarding kasi you can do LOTs AND LOTS OF THING ON A SKIMBOARD COMPARE TO A SURFBOARD.but don"t worry ang skimboarding sa pinas ay nag e-evolved slowly to better boards and equipments.skimboarding is still the extreme of all extreme sport in terms of wave riding for me. Very Happy

hmmm.. naka try na akong mag surf pero wala rin masyadong alon dito sa amin e. Kaya skim ang hilig ko tlga. Kapag 'habagat' season lang nakakasurf dito. pwede rin magtravel ka sa Siargao (Cloud 9 baby!) or Mati para surf trip talaga. So massasabi ko rin depende lng tlaga sa alon. Pero kahit anong water sports panalo naman e!

Pero kung PASSION pinaguusapan.. SKIM ALL THE WAY AKO!!! WHOOO! Cool

i started surfing before i started skimboarding.. for me.. i love both sports..

like what other people said.. it depends on the waves.. if it is surfable, then surf.. if it is skimable them skim..

when ever i surf, i always skimboard after..

never thought about having a main sport, beacuse its all about having fun, and surfing and skimboarding is fun

if you come to think of it.. boardsports are simillar and they compliment each other
