Skimboarding Tricks: Spins

How To Do Spins Trick Tips 

One of the first tricks that most people learn when they begin skimboarding is to spin.

To spin, bend down and stick your hand in the sand/water, this will cause you to begin to spin.


Use your “back” hand to create the spin
You can use the hand you put in the sand to help “push” you around and get a little more speed on your spin.

Squat more than bend
When you put your hand down in the sand, don’t just bend over. That will move your center of gravity from over the center of the board. To keep your center of gravity over the board, bend your knees and squat down a bit to reach down to the sand.

For better and more spins, adjust the way you are leaning so as to keep the part of the board that is at the front of your forward motion out of the water a bit. If that dips under the water, it will stop the board and you’ll crash.

The faster you go, the more spins you will be able to do. Speed is the key.
