Summer is here and for my family that means spending time at the beach! Sure we can build sandcastles and lounge around in the waves but Big Sis doesn’t want to sit still…she wants to get up and do something! With D6 Sports she now has the perfect beginners skimmer!
Growing up I always wanted to ride a skimboard. I would look longingly at the other kids as they would skim across the water with ease. I was much too timid to try it. Had there been a skimboard out there with a handle on it making it easy for beginners I most definitely would have begged and pleaded with my parents until they bought me one!
D6 Sports introduces the SurfSkimmer, an innovative skimboarding product that’s perfect for an entry-level water sports fan. Offering kids a hands-on skimboard experience that is both fun and safe, the SurfSkimmer is designed with gripper technology, a stable handle and sleek design allowing the board to glide effortlessly over the white wash giving kids the opportunity to experiment and excel in skimboarding within minutes on the water.
This skimmer is suggested for ages 5-10 years old and supports riders up to 150 pounds. Big Sis is 4.5 years old but waterskiis behind our boat at home and has little to no fear of trying new things; so this was a perfect fit for her. She immediately grabbed it and headed to the surf. Husband and I gave her some brief pointers on how to use it and off she went. It really does glide across the shallow water with ease! Sure she fell dozens of times but she had a blast doing it and was constantly getting back up to try again. She still needs to work on her footing once she is on the board. She is a little stubborn like her mama so she would not listen to my advice.
She had the best time riding on this board. She could have never attempted riding a skimmer without this one from D6 Sports since that handle is a necessary part for beginners to get use to the board.
Here is a video of an older kid riding it the way it can be done with a little bit of practice. Makes me want to ride!
My little athlete can’t wait till she is old enough and has had enough practice to unscrew the gripper bar and ride it like a regular skimmer board.
We will definitely be taking the D6 Surf Skimmer with us to the beach every time we go! This is a must have at the beach just as much as a bucket and shovel!
Purchase: You can purchased the D6 Surf Skimmer on their website for $69.99. Comes in green and blue.
