Don’t miss out on the Zed Island Skim Jam at Whitty’s Lagoon on Vancouver Island, British Columbia this Saturday.
“The way Whitty’s is set up makes it perfect for flat ground skimming. It’s located on Vancouver Island in a suburb of Victoria called Metchosin (about 1/2 hour away from down town), said Zed Skimboards owner Jeff. “Zamluk It’s squished between the Cascade Mountains in the USA and the Beaufort Mountain range on Vancouver Island. This makes the sand very firm and fine, while the huge bay traps the tide pools and sand in. This make the skim conditions very consistent, the sand and pools don’t shift much year to year. For those skimmers that are used to the nicer things in life there’s also a grassy knoll overlooking the beach, porcelain thrones (the flush), and for the injured skimmers, only 5 min walk from parking.”
The event starts at 10am and goes until 3pm. The contest will also feature a $500 cash purse and a Men’s Open, Pro, U-16 and Women’s Open Division.
“All of our features will be built from scratch this year and will be developed by our team riders and the general input from people like you,” said Zamluk.
The Island Skim Session is much like skimboarding in general and is getting larger and larger every year. Make sure not to miss out on this epic event.
