How to grow skimboarding’s awareness and popularity

Skimboarding has become an increasingly exciting sport, as the world’s best performers take their finless boards to challenging waves.

Skimboarding is the only water sport that doesn’t need waves, wind, or even water depth to be enjoyed.

You can ride it inland (flatland skimboarding) on a wet surface, or in the ocean (wave skimboarding) at a shorebreak.

Is this the biggest winch-powered skimboarding air ever?

Blair Conklin and Dade Shields have recently formed Skid Kids TV, a media collective covering all things skimboarding.

The duo has been quite successful at putting the sport of skimming in the limelight, thanks to a weekly presence on YouTube. Hopefully, they will keep up insightful and colorful videos.

On June 2019, this group of Laguna Beach riders captured one of the biggest skimboarding airs of all time on film.
