Zap Skimboard Size Chart

MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR!

The nose of your skimboard should reach anywhere from the chest to chin for intermediate to experienced level wave riding. If you are just beginning, you can sand slide on a much smaller board.

POINTS TO CONSIDER WHEN DECIDING WHERE TO CHOOSE WITHIN THE RECOMMENDED SIZE RANGE

SKILL LEVEL Beginners may choose a board smaller than our recommended size range. Our recommended size range and board sizing chart below is based on a skimboarder who wants to ride in deeper water away from the shoreline and into the waves. IF YOU ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN SANDSLIDING, YOU MAY RIDE A SMALLER SKIMBOARD. IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO RIDE A SKIMBOARD BELOW THE MIDDLE OF YOUR STOMACH. Intermediate/experienced riders should stick to this recommended size range. The rule of thumb is for the skimboard to reach in the middle of the recommended size range around the chest. This allows for ideal sizing to ride into deeper water and into the waves.

WEIGHT OF RIDER Riders that have more weight to throw around should choose a board at the top end of the spectrum.

AGE Riders that are young and growing fast should choose a board at the top end of the spectrum. This allows for room to grow into the board and helps rider progress.

LOCAL CONDITIONS It is an advanced point to consider. Typically professional riders prefer smaller boards in large, right-on-the-beach conditions such as California’s Aliso Beach, or Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Smaller, less powerful conditions commonly found in Florida and throughout the east coast of the United States require a slightly larger skimboard with a wider surface area. The additional board size helps keep the riders momentum since there is less push in smaller wave conditions. Simply put, BIG WAVES = SMALLER BOARD. SMALL WAVES = BIGGER BOARD.
