Skateboarding is mainstream. Surfing is a religion. When is skimboarding going to get there?
Yesterday I spent the good part of the day at a skimboarding competition in St. George Utah. There were competitors there from St. George, Washington State, Sacramento California, Germany, the Netherlands and a kid representing a Polish skimboarding company. almost 30 years ago when I started skimboarding I could not have imagine where this sport was going to go. This was the 18th year of the competition. It is amazing what some of these kids can do on a board. One of the cool things in St. George is all the young kids that enter the competition.
Skimboarding is gaining some traction. I think what is going to take it to the skate/surfing level is the simple skimpool you can put in your back yard. I will right more about that later.
