Re: Nobile skim - first few runs

[quote="chrisJB"]Used my Nobile Skim the other day & really surprised how easy it is to ride. I read lots of threads that mentioned that they need a bit of practice, but I guess they relate to the original finless style. I'm sure theres loads of things you could do on these boards other than blat ba...

[quote="waverider"]Last time we had an electric pump thread I asked, "How heavy are they"

No one wanted to tell me then so how about it?[/quote]

And are there any decent review/comparison sites out there? I haven't really found anything.
