Santa Cruz Skimblast 2017 Video – UST Stop #5

Blair Conklin took the win at this year’s Santa Cruz event, a contest where he has excelled in recent years. In doing so he jumped up into a strong first place in the standings on this year’s tour. He was followed by the talented John Weber in 2nd, Perry Pruitt in 3rd and Sam Stinnett in 4th.

For the first time in more than 25 years of competition history the Santa Cruz event was not held at 26th Ave this year. Contest organizer Ben Koscielniak decided to roll the dice on a new contest venue at 3rd Avenue. Despite the small swell most contest attendees approved of the change in venue and we expect to see it again in future years.

Kayotics Skimboards: Bittersweet

This past winter, Kayotics Skimboards put together the riding styles of Jack Bender, Wolfgang Quan and Keven Caron-pilon to establish a new stake hold on the east coast. This past season they attempted to put together a short film showing the kayo scene in Ontario. Even though Wolfgang had a season ending injury and Keven dealt with flooded out rivers and lakes we put together this video – This is Bittersweet.

Skimboarder VS The Flash Flood

Laurent Lozes pushes the limits of the skimboarding by attacking the tidal surge / flash flood on his skimboard.

Looks scary at first, but then it looks like so much fun we want’t to try if out ourselves!

Skimboarding Music Video – Satya Jones – Ocean Life

Skimboarder and musician, Satya Jones, recently sent us a skim/music video edit that we wanted to show everyone.

Satya is an aspiring musician that loves to skim and he created the music and the video. It filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, where he lives. He choose skimboarding for this video because it relates to the song and he wanted to create a song dedicated to skimboarding.

Watch, listen and enjoy!
