Should you buy a wood, fiberglass, or carbon skimboard?
Skimboards come in many sizes and types. If you are a beginner to skimboarding, choose your board according to the size, and the construction material of the board. When selecting the board size do not go by just the length but rather length, width, and core thickness of the board. When dealing with construction you are going to pick from three main options wood, fiberglass, and carbon fiber. Most people should choose fiberglass, as it is the best material for most riders. The skimboard you should choose mostly depends on your size (height and weight), riding style and personal goals. These are some general guidelines.
