Skim Surfing with Brad Domke and Tom Curren

Videographer Ian Boyd captured some pretty cool footage of skimboarder Brad Domke and surfing great Tom Curren skimboarding, bodyboarding and surfing in Playa San Diego, Oaxaca, México last May.

“I finally got around to revisiting a hard drive containing footage from a surf trip to Punta Conejo Resort last spring,” Ian said. “While we were scoring a small, playful swell, Brad Domke and Tom Curren were quietly staying at the resort and joining forces to explore uncrowded surf. During one afternoon session the two showed up while I was shooting video of our crew. It was my impression that Tom was learning to ride a number of finless wave tools from the skimboarding master and seemed to progress quickly this day. He started out catching waves with a Boogie Board on top of a blue soft top board. Clearly the additional floatation allowed him to easily catch waves before bailing the soft top after takeoff and standing up on the Boogie. Then he progressed to catching waves on just the Boogie and finally moving on to the skimboard. Regardless of the progression or the board, Curren remains the ultimate style master and one of my favorite surfers of all time. While their collaboration is not news, I do believe this was one of the first trips that Brad and Tom got together for finless sessions. Feeling lucky to capture this rare moment—being in the right place at the right time I guess.”

Stab Magazine also recently did an interview with Luex Magazine.

“Enigmatic man of style, Tom Curren, has recently been seen surfing Rincon on a skimboard. The board’s been modified a bit and, of course, Curren breezes on the thing. “I’m pretty excited about the finless movement,” Tom told Luex Mag. “I think there’s a lot going on there, and I think there’s going to be a lot of progression in the board designs. A lot of people really enjoy riding finless boards, they won’t out-perform regular boards but maybe some day it’ll be a kinda shift in board design.”
