Skimboarding in Villa Beach

4

Do you like to go out and enjoy the beach with your skimboard? Have a lomographic fun in Villa beach while going skimboarding!

In Wikipedia, a villa was originally an upper-class country house, though since its origins in Roman times the idea and function of a villa has evolved considerably. Here in our place, it is a wide stretch of beach sand. While some would nag about hurting their feet with rocks and barnacles, Villa beach is enjoyed with a grinding stretch of pure sand and “low to no” waves, making it fun for skim boarding!

Often every weekend, we would bask under the sun (if the weather is cooperating) around two in the afternoon going skim boarding in the Villa beach. A friend of mine owns a little nook where we place our things (bags, boards, etc) there. It also has a little “shower room” if some would want to get wet in the beach.

The play would usually extend from midday afternoon down to 6 PM. It’s a nice view actually to watch the sun setting down while throwing the skimboard in the water and playing with it. The low tide makes this place beneficial for skimboarders. It has even held some grand competitions of local skimboarding here in our place.

Villa beach can be just great during sun down. After an afternoon fun, we would simply have a little chill in my friend’s nook, drink some booze and have a little talk. Just a simple and plain fun, that’s it. Villa beach can be just a 15 to 20 minute drive from the city proper. It’s very accessible plus the place can kill those stressors that have been winding you down over the week.

Nice place and see you there!!!
