Balboa Island skim board surfing. NIK Color Efex. The sand is included in the image to show that this is not typical surfing. Skim board surfers wait on the beach for a big wave, then run with their boardsto the water, throw down their board and jump on. They then ride the wave as long as they can along the shoreline. Regular surfers paddle out into the water and wait for a wave to ride back into shore...People category
