According to Ms Bjanesha M. Emphasis, the General Manager of the said Resort Hotel, “the event is set to be an annual celebration of the sport and/or twice a year eyeing for the month of May and October.” She added, “We decided to do so in order to provide a sense of community and allows the sport to progress in ways that never seen before”.

Skim-boarding (or skimming) is board-sport similar to surfing which takes place near the shore and uses a skimboard in order to glide across the water’s surface to meet an incoming, breaking wave, shorebreak, and ride it back to shore.

Skim-boarding has a rich history. What started over 60 years ago at Laguna Beach, Southern California on round wood boards by the Laguna lifeguards has evolved into a highly competitive water sport. Accordingly, most people know skim-boarding as “that thing you do on the sand,” and while this is true, skim-boarding has become so much more than that. Skim-boarding has developed since then to ride waves much like surfing, performing aerial maneuvers and pulling into the barrel of the wave.
