Product feature
  1. CONDITIONS OF USE.
    This skimboard is designed for skimboarders who want to progress, start attempting tricks and get into the waves/foam. It should be used on a thin layer of water and/or in small shore break (waves that break on the shore). Avoid very windy days. Avoid rocky areas.
  2. USAGE PRECAUTIONS.
    Note that falls are common when skimboarding. Warm up your wrists and ankles before going in. Wax the top to avoid slipping. Launch the board in a flat, open area (watch out for swimmers).
  3. HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR SKIMBOARD SIZE.
    The size of the skimboard directly influences its stability and handling. It must be adapted to the user's size. This skimboard is suitable for teenagers and adults weight between 40 and 75 kg, and 1m40 to 1m80 tall, from 14 years and up.

  5. RESTRICTIONS OF USE.
    Do not use in areas reserved for swimming. Not suitable for those over 1m90.
  6. DIRECTIONS FOR USE. PART 1.
    1) The launch: Practice launching your board as straight as possible on a thin layer of water. 2) Racing: Start running board in hand, throw your board, and then sprint to jump on it. Your last steps should be as fast as possible.
  7. DIRECTIONS FOR USE. PART 2.
    3) Getting on: Get on your board as lightly as possible. Your feet should be placed right down the middle of the board. These key points will help you have the best ride possible. 4) The ride: Keep your knees bent to lower your centre of gravity, which will keep you more stable for a longer ride. 5) Your first tricks: Once you've got skimming down, try putting your hand on the ground and spinning!
  8. HOW TO CATCH A WAVE WITH THIS PRODUCT. PART 1.
    This product is designed for taking on your first waves. To do so, be sure you’ve understood the directions for use, find a beach with small waves (or foam) breaking on the shore and follow these instructions: 1) Throw your board at an angle to the wave (or foam), run and jump on.
  9. HOW TO CATCH A WAVE WITH THIS PRODUCT. PART 2.
    2) As you approach the wave (or foam), bend your knees and push down with your toes or heels to start your turn towards the beach. 3) Timing (the moment you get to the wave/foam) and speed are key.
  10. OLAIAN.
    OLAIAN is the new Decathlon trade name devoted to surfing, bodyboarding & skimboarding. This Basque-sounding name is inspired by the universe of our development centre in Hendaye, in the Basque Country. It is the contraction of OLA, as OLATU means wave and IAN, a Basque suffix meaning “inside”. At OLAIAN, we see a potential playground in every wave and we want each person to be able to improve whilst enjoying themselves, regardless of their surroundings and their environment.
