Skimboarding is a combination of surfing and skateboarding. It is practised through a slide board, smaller and lighter than the surfing ones.
The sliding moves and techniques are typical of skateboarding. The essential element is water, therefore it is practised on a skimpool or skimboarding pool, a rigid constanstly sprayed with water. This creates the phenomenon of 'aquaplaning', which allows you to glide across the surface. The best practice is becoming able to juggle 360-degree jumps like a skateboard without losing their balance.


The CST is equipped with a skimpool and the related necessary equipment. The boards are available in three different sizes according to the weight of the participants.
