Flatland Skimboards

Flatland (or inland) skimboards have wooden, hardwood core, build out of individual plies of wood joint by water resistant glue, pressed together and coated with polyurethane lacquer. The core can be additionally protected by High Pressure Laminate (HPL) applied on the top and bottom of the board, which adds to board durability, stiffness and minimizes the traction between the bottom of a board and the water. At the same time the top of the board requires increased traction and grip for rider’s feet to ensure good control over the board. For this purpose majority of the boards have foam traction pads applied on the entire top surface. Another important technical future is a rocker, so the way in which the board is curved, lifting up its nose/tail and in some models the sides. This helps the board to stay on the water surface and facilitates performing tricks. Flatland skimboards may be one size (around 100-105cm) or come in different sizes (length and width), in which case the choice depends on rider’s weight. The boards are typically around 1 cm thick and weigh approximately 3 kg.

Flatland skimboards allow riders to do long slides on the water surface, but also to perform skateboard like trick such, as ollies and shuvits. Thanks to their stiffness and durability flatland skimboards are also used to ride specially designed ramps or other obstacles. Flatland skimboards can have different flexibility and shapes. The two shape types are: twintip (e.g. Standard Proto - DB Skimbaords) - where nose and tail are the same and therefore you can right such board in both directions, which is preferable while performing tricks; and directional shape (e.g. The One - Seventyone) - where the nose and tail are clearly defined, used mainly for long slides.
