The model pictured is current, my model is not there anymore but it looks the same, which is a skimboard shape, not the same as the vast majority of wakesurfer boards.Slappysan wrote:Not sure if you meant that the pic was of your skim but just to clarify the pic is of a wake surfer, not a beach skim. Wake surfers do quite well behind kites as they have to have to be wide with low rocker to make them surfable behind small boat wakes. I would imagine a beach skim to be even better for low wind though as it will have even less rocker.
They called these skimboards for many years, now for the last years they call them skimboards to ride behind a boat or in the waves.
Phase Five now makes a couple models with three fins and a shape/size that is closer to their competitors wakesurf designs.
In their words...
"The essence of Phase Five Wakesurf Boards was founded over 25 years ago, with our sister company Zap Skimboards. Ever since we began building boards, people have been riding our skimboards behind boats."
