SKIMusicFEST is a skimboard competition infused with a music festival held at Double Bluff beach. People have been skimboarding Double Bluff since the early 70’s. This tradition has been passed down through the generations. This event offers a great opportunity for riders from all over to come together and throw it down with friendly stoked out locals. With locally handmade glass trophies, live music all day long, and delicious bbq snacks you can’t go wrong.
Pacific Northwest hip-hop artist Common Market is set to perform at the Jack’d SkimMusicFest on Whidbey Island July 30, 2011. The diverse lineup of musicians will include internationally acclaimed artist Common Market, reggae by Adrian Xavier, hip hop by Tulsi and many other local groups from the island.
Whidbey Island is located 25 miles northwest of Seattle in the arm pit of the Puget Sound. Whidbey is accessible by either a ferry or bridge connection. Double Bluff beach is located on the South end of the island about 15 minutes from the Clinton ferry dock.
Ferry Access to the Island
A ferry departs from the Mukilteo ferry dock every 30 minutes. To catch the ferry follow the Mukilteo/Whidbey Island exit off I-5 (#189/Hwy 525) straight to the ferry dock.

Double Bluff beach parking only accommodates about 15 cars, due to these restraints we will be offering a shuttle from a local park and ride about 5 minutes away at SR 525 & Bayview Rd. We recommend using the shuttle to avoid any inconveniences. The shuttle will leave for Double Bluff every ½ hour from Bayview park and ride beginning at 10:00am until 4:00pm.
