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.

When Brad Domke goes to the beach, he brings all of his toys. Skimboard, surfboard, and 8ft INT Soft Top. A good run of swell hit this little beach break in California and he was on it, run skimboarding at the dead high tides and mixing it up between riding his Surfboard and board transferring via the Soft Top to his Skimboard. The Triple Combo Platter. Filmed and edited by Dylan Palmer.

We are stoked to see that MOV is going to drop a new skimboard movie just in time for the holidays.

The teaser for the new skimboarding movie “Esoterica” is their 5th skim video release. The full-length movie will be available for digital download and on DVD December 16, 2016.
