The SKIMSURF has the same shape as the 06, but we added thicker pads and more options for the footstraps. The SKIMSURF was designed for light wind and small junkie waves. Grab the Skimsurf when the wind is blowing 7 to 17 knots and the waves are no bigger than 2 meters. It planes like a skim board but rides like a wave board. And if you are purist, just remove the fins and it's a dedicated skim board. We essentially turned the D-Wave into a SkimSurf Board and made it Fack'n Strong. Complete Weight: 7 lbs./3.2 kg.
Sanding Rails and Repairing
The boards come with 3D sharp rails that can easily be sanded down with some sand paper. The reason we have sharp rails is to satisfy riders that love sharp rails.
If you decide to change your rails from sharp to rounder shaped rails, here are the steps:
- Use 2 kinds of sand paper (#150 and a fine one #320. See picture below)
- Start sanding the HEAL side first, but make sure you to sand down only from one pad to the other pad leaving a at least 12 inches towards the tips sharp. I would not recommend sanding down the toe side.
The FS boards are very strong but you will still get scratches from sliding different hard objects such as rocks, slider, piers, cars, roads etc... The best way to repair these scratches it is to use some #320 sand paper or higher with some water. Most of the scratches and dings on the rails will be fixed but repairing the dings/scratches in the middle of the board will depend on how deep they are.
