Skimboarding in Argao, Cebu

Skimboarding_Argao_Cebu_Philippines

Argao is an old town which is 68 km south of Cebu City.  Lawis is the best place in Argao for skimboarding. It has the stretch of beach running along the edge of Argao. The place is famous for this sport because it has a sandbar at its centre that stretches out into the sea that makes it to have a longest season for skimboarding.  Either North or South of Lawis, part of the sandbar would really have a good wave whether from Habagat or Amihan wind.

 

As they say it would just take a day to learn skimboarding. All you need to do have the willingness to learn and be prepared for little pain while doing the practice. First you need to hold the board both hands and wait for a good wave to come and run along the water.

Toss the board at the correct timing onto the water and jump like a ballerina without losing your balance. You really get excited when big waves are coming. The bigger waves the better because the board is just small to carry the weight of the rider.

It would just keep you floating by hydroplaning over the water. Experts could do acrobats with big waves which would give a farther ride as you slide on the plane of the wave.

With extra careful, I even tried it myself even if I’m 3 months pregnant.  Since then, my baby such a sporty girl like me and now it shows.

Argao is such a nice place to get together with your friends and family. There are lots of resorts nearby the beach. We just stayed in our friend’s rest house.  They have swimming pool with Jacuzzi. They’re also accepting guest at a lower rate.
