Skimboarding Bantayan Island

Skimboarding on Bantayan Island is certainly one of the pastimes that the island will cater for with the many beautiful white sand beaches. The island does not have a surf beach so skimboarding is the next best thing. The water is usually flat so flatland skimboarding is the best style.

Occasionally and more so in winter, the water can have a small swell so some small wave riding is possible too.

I'm still learning to skimboard myself and I have to say its a lot of fun, a cross between surfing and skateboarding. I plan to get around the island and take a look at various beaches and I will be reporting here in any spots that look good for skimboarding on Bantayan Island. So far I have only tried it around the south west side at Santa Fe where it is mainly flat on the white sand beaches.

I have created a video of my experience of learning to skimboard on an old wooden skimboard.
