Short for "skimboarding", the sport of running and jumping on a specially made board and skimming over the surface of the water (usually at the beach). The 2 types of skimming are:

- Sandskimming -
Done by skimming parallel to the beach across a thin layer of water, usually on a sandbar or other flat area. Almost all skimmers start this way, although there's lots of room for expertise with advanced sandskimming tricks.

- Wave-riding -
With wave riding you start higher on the beach, and run down the slope hopefully getting on your board before the shoal drops off. From there you ride out to a wave, carve into it and ride it in, performing your bag of tricks along the way.

-" that.....full fat?"

"No, it's semi."

-"Ugh, what sort of freak do you take me for? Skimmed milk only. You disgust me."

I was a victim of skimming because
2 hours after taking some money out of
a cash machine in Soho, 300 pounds was
taken out of my account at another machine in Brixton - and I was nowhere near there at the time.
