I never update this thing but i suppose i probably should. Summer of 2005 went by like a dream, theres nothing better in my life, then a hot day, good waves, and lots of energy. Overall i stuck to the classics, which consist of toolin' around on my board, you see the waves around Maine make it pretty inpossible to do such things as ride the waves back in. However throughout the summer i pretty much mastered the 360 shove-its off of waves, did my 'Big Airs'.. which for me, cause i know our waves suck, consist of 6-7ft. The best thing about skimboarding however i believe is the peoople you meet while doing it, over the years i have racked up so many friends that make annual trips to my beach, and its always a good time.
-Highlights of 2005 skimming include:
*a 2 inch long scar on my left shin, cause my board kinda sliced the layers of skin off my shin, when i was going for a shove-it, and the wind decided to catch a hold of my board.
*Good Memories
*new friends

Id give so much to be able to live in goddamn Florida, and skim for a label.. fuck!!!! Maine is such a waste, for all of you skimmers out there lucky enough to be around that MADNESS, know that there are other avid skimmers out there who would give anything for that chance.

Summer 2006 will be even better believe me... wish i had my camera w/me for '05.

Hey there, haha i just thought id give you all some info on my board that i use, i have a bunch that i use, but haha my "Special board". Wow nvm ill give ya the run down on the few that i use.

- Its a Zap
- Its called a "Comp"
- Its 52 Inches long
- Its made of Carbon Fiber
- Its silver on the top, black on the bottom
- It has an old school Zap logo on the top
- It cost over $350.00

I like to use this board when the waves are like chest high, or just really seem big for the day :-P

The second board i use is a Zap Wedge.
-Its like 36 Inches long
-Made of Fiber Glass
-All white on the bottom, half orange and white on the top
-Costs about $110.00

Lastly i have a few "Bat" boards that i use.
-These are the really thin ones, they arent too long either, they're what i like to use on my "sand skimming", when i wanna do like shove-its, and spins and such, they go pretty fast, compared to the bigger boards, and they're just fun to show off on.

Anyways this is it for the updates for this evening.. hit me up w/some replys.. id love to hear from other fellow skimmers

Introduction to the Madness [24 Nov 2004|11:07pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Hello all,
I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Justin, i live in York Beach Maine, and i have been skimboarding for a little over 10 years now. For those of you who do not know what skimboarding is, its when you take the board, throw it out infront of you, run and jump on it, and lol try to glide across the water, although most begginers end up falling on their butts lol. Anyways, i almost made this a community, but im not quite sure exactly how many skimboarders we have on the LJ community, so thats what kind of made my decision to make this just a journal.
If you'd like to chat more hit me up sometime, my main journal is just__in__sane.
