United Skim Tour: 2015 Sununga Skimboarding Video

Sununga is one of the most anticipated events on the United Skim Tour for good reason. Perfect siders, the best skimmers in the world and a full week waiting period… whats not to like!?

This year it all boiled down to Leandro Azevedo and Blair Conklin once again. Unlike last year however, Blair had the edge this round and took the win in a heated final which you can see wave for wave at the end of the video.

With this victory Blair jumped to first place in the UST rankings. The next contest will be OBX!

Skimboarding Is The New Black

Skimboarding Is The New Black - Story by Kelli Bean on http://themermaidsociety.com.au

Photo by Fabiana Badie of Casey Kiernan, our 2014 SkimUSA and United Skim Tour Womens Pro Champion!

Recently I met the editor of The Mermaid Society, an Australian website for girls of the sea. Sally Mac found the Skim Mermaids Community on Instagram and asked me if I would like to become a contributor, with the desire of incorporating skimboarding into the mix.

Some of the site’s goals are to make it a high level, highly respected go-to site for all things women’s beach sports and culture. A forum of opinion pieces and reviews from women around the world, as well as promoting talented athletes, artists, musicians and academics.

Of course I couldn’t resist and from our conversations, Skimboarding Is The New Black manifested. I am looking forward to seeing where our collaboration takes us, in the meantime I hope my introduction story proves educational for those new to the sport and everyone is feeling represented.
