How to get on a skimboard with the one-step drop

Whether you’re a flatland skim rider or a wave skimboarder, you need to learn to throw the board before jumping on it.

Getting on your skimboard isn’t easy. And if you can’t master it, you won’t make it to the waves or ramps. That is why the throwing technique is a fundamental skill in skimming.
