    Water walking (Ex)

    Oil-covered hairs at the bottom its feet allows a skate spider to glide across the surface of still or slow-moving water. It can move on water at its normal land speed but will sink if it moves less than half of its normal movement in a turn. Fast moving water is treated like difficult terrain for the skate spider. A skate spider cannot swim and can drown if it becomes submerged in water.
