    Ok, I'm Goofy foot....... But I also throw down as a regular foot would. So my landing on the board is backwards. I havent had any problems when I was on my old Vic. However, I just went and got a new Exile, similar shape but wider and longer. I'm realizing I cant throw the Exile down like the Vic. I think I have to adjust my total start off. Any suggestions?

    hey, what was the name of the other wax you used for dry sand? I couldn't understand it. the problem is, that zumwax costs about $70 in Germany - that's really expensive! by the way - love your videos :)

    i’ve been skim boarding on and off (a few sessions each summer) for almost ten years, and i’ve ALWAYS ran after it for at least five steps, then jump on it with both feet. maybe i’ve gotta try this method 🤔🤔

    Ok this is possible and affordable... because sports like wakeboarding, kiteboarding, windsurfing e.c. which i would love to try are kind of expensive but skimboard costs like 50-100$ so i will try it when i can.
