Brad Domke calls the sport he dominates a “good vibe.”
He should know. He’s the world’s best.
The 21-year-old from Wabasso Beach, who carves his craft daily at Sebastian Inlet with his crew, “The Dub,” won the pro division at Saturday’s Easter Bunny Skim Bash at the Cocoa Beach Pier.
“It’s just a fun sport, because you can do it almost anytime,” said Domke, ranked first during last season’s eight-stop U.S. Skim Pro Tour.
Greg Krolczyk, who owns Skim City in Indialantic, hosted Saturday’s event, which featured 47 contestants, including 13 pros.
“It’s been around since the early ’30s, but now it’s the fastest-growing of all water sports,” he said. “Little kids can start with a board for about $100, while adults can probably spend in the $200s. But, that’s it. No leashes or fins.”
