Surfing is one of the most popular summer sports out there, and once you master it—the world is your oyster. There are many different watersports worth trying where basic surfing skills will come in handy and these three are a good place to start.
Skimboarding shares many similarities with surfing since both sports require balance, agility, and timing, but it brings its own set of challenges. Skimming involves a smaller board without fins, used to glide along the water’s edge before meeting the incoming waves.
Also known as boogie boarding, this water sport is all about riding waves on a smaller board than the one traditionally used in surfing. If you’re still a surfing beginner mastering your skills, you’ll enjoy this sport because it makes it possible to experience the thrill of surfing without having advanced skills since you’ll only need to catch waves closer to the shore.
This watersport combines elements of surfing and sailing, and that’s why it’s the perfect fit for people who already mastered one of these activities. The rider is required to stand on a board and use a sail to harness the wind’s power, effortlessly gliding across the water.
