you can skim DE any day, theres always a little something and its always on shore so its always skimmable. I dont know about 3 to 4 ft, thats usually surfable size around here. best skim is around bethany and fenwick usually. not mention south side gets some nice stuff sometimes too. dewey holds a skim comp every year too but its about 20 min north of bethany. hopefully that helps.
Skimming is for people who cant swim and are too ***** to get in the water to ride the waves.
They like running in circles on the beach and buying seven 400 dollar skimboards braa.
One could argue that the person that doesn't skim on shorepound days is lazy or too fat to run, skimming can be awesome if you get it down right. On good days I can get 8-10 second liners. All it took was one board I bought used and repaired myself.
