    Skimboarding is great crosstraining for tennis. Kind of like skateboarding on waves. For good skimboarding you need

    *steep beach
    *waves breaking on shore
    *run like hell
    *good balance
    *ride wave back to shore
    *don't break neck

    In Europe you can find good skim in Portugal, Spain and France (obviously anywhere with a beach but those are the best for it iirc). 'Invented' in Laguna Beach, CA.

    It is a young man's sport, I never see someone my age trying it.

    @norcal so os this like a skateboard in that you make your own momentum and then launch yourself? Sounds like good fun.

    that looks pretty awesome! I'm always envious of anyone who isn't landlocked.

    I've been trying to figure out my serve and was just reading that it's supposedly similar to a volleyball serve - but for some reason, I don't think mine is going to translate to tennis very well...
