How low can you go at low tide?


Surf's up, though the tide is out for five guys from Kent who come to practice their skimboarding skills in a couple of inches of water in West Seattle. From left, twin brothers Justin and Jason Rodjanapanyakul, Tim Pettit, Trevor Stine and Andrew Moon. They are preparing for a competition later this summer. They said what they're doing when they use rails and ramps (note the rail at center right) is a cross between snowboarding and skateboarding. The low tide Saturday was a minus 3.3, one of the lowest of the year.
