We took the on our first camping trip of the year. We went camping at a
provincial park in Northwestern Ontario for the weekend.
We really didn’t know much about the Surf Skimmer other then seeing it
packed in our gear.
Headed to the beach!
The kids were excited to try it out, but they didn’t really know what to
expect. At first they tried it in much deeper water then it’s really
designed to be used in and found very quickly that wasn’t as it was
meant to be.
With a little prodding (from Dad) they began to get
a bit of a hang of it. They took turns, largely to warm up as the lake
is spring fed and with the late spring the water was a bit colder then
you might expect... Also, while a beautiful beach - it’s a fairly narrow
and that made finding the wet sand and water a bit tricky. They really
enjoyed it though and despite a good number of tumbles they kept trying
it out. All in all it was a wonderful time and I think the kids, Owen
in particular will enjoy trying it again later in the summer.
