Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I buy good quality skimboards in Cape Town/South Africa?

Unfortunately, there are currently not many options.

SkimZA used to sell Exile Skimboards, which are top of the range boards imported from California, USA. We’ve paused our import operations of Exile products. You can contact and order from Exile directly, but importing single products is a costly exercise.

Are there any cheaper locally produced boards?

In the past, there have been locally produced boards, but the quality was inferior and supply was unpredictable.
SkimZA currently does not recommend any local skimboard brands.

Does SkimZA have a store in Cape Town where I can look at the boards you sell?

SkimZA is an online-only retailer. Unfortunately we don’t have a physical store in Cape Town, however, we do have a representative that can possibly show you some boards. Get in touch if you’re interested.

Can I order directly from Exile Skimboards or do I have to order through SkimZA?

Yes, you can order directly from Exile, but the cost of shipping an individual board to South Africa is quite high. If you’d like to order an Exile, get in touch so we can add you to our waiting list.

Where can I buy a “proper” skimboard for my 8-15 year old son/daughter?

Unfortunately, there are currently no local boards that we can recommend.

SkimZA imports and sells Exile’s Super G board, which is an entry level board for riders up to 63.5 kg.
The next level up would be the entry level, the EX2 board.
