Yesterday we went to the beach so that I could try out my latest board. It's called a skimboard.
I wanted to surf this vacation, but due to extremely high winds, the waves are too big for it to be safe for me to surf. My mom and dad went out for coffee and left us at the house with my grandparents. According to Mom, they searched around for boogie boards for a while before heading to a small shack in the middle of town. Inside the shack was an older gentlemen reading a comic book. When they walked the store he quickly through down the book and helped them out. Mom and Dad picked out the most interesting boards they could find. when they were going to check out, they noticed a little thing in the corner of the shop.
"What's that?" asked Mom.
"Why, that's a skimboard! They're just like surfboards, but you only use them on small waves! They can solve all your needs!" said the guy (let's call him Mr. Nicedude)
"Will it help my poor daughter who loves to surf but can't here because the waves are too big?" she asked.
"Why yes it would! Take some wax too. It'll help a bunch!" finished Mr. Nicedude.
What helped the most in the situation was that the boards were half off! The price tag said $30 but we got them for $13!!!
Anyway, I couldn't figure out how to do it. So I looked it up on the internet. This was the funniest one I could find (red=my additions/comments)
Step 1: Drive to the nearest beach that is good for skimboarding. What are those beaches? What makes a goos skimboarding beach? I mean come on!
Step 2: Get out of the car and walk to the water. MAKE SURE YOU WEAR SUN-TAN LOTION. Um... too detailed! we know to get out of the water! And, sun-tan lotion! It's sunscreen! And we know to wear it!
Step 3: Put your board down in the water. Start skimboarding! HOW DO YOU SKIMBOARD????????????
Step 4: When you come near a wave, perform an aerial trick! Ok, you are going WAY to fast, buddy! At first you were describing how to get out of the car and now you are going too fast!?! Get it together!
