Hell yeah! Just not that well. It's very impressive to me how well you're bottom-turning that board. That seems to be where I have the most problems riding my skim.

Great vid!

Nice vid Top. Can you post a picture of the board. It is kind of hard to see in the vid.

I have been into making my own skim boards out of wood for about a year now, which I ride strapless with a kite. A lot of guys on the beach have started to ask me to make them boards as well and I am always looking for new shapes to try.

:thumb:
Tried riding a more traditional alaia board last year, it went upwind well,
but also went underwater well -too much length to recover from pearl.
This shape looks great, was thinking of making another, shorter one -inspirational!
