“Last August 4-5, we arrived at the 1st Mercedes Skim Nationals in Mercedes, Camarines Norte. Never thought that we were going to be welcomed by glassy 2-3ft. shore breaks and that we played until night time. I think it was the first time the locals there witnessed skimboarding because the shoreline was full of anticipators that are eager to learn about the sport. Our host, Victor Orendain, a first timer in handling a competition, did a tremendous job in organizing the whole event along with few other people. Not to mention the Bikini Open and Reggae Night added to the fun!
Being a part of the competition was an honor and we had a great time in Mercedes. Kudos to the local government in supporting the whole event along with the PNP and the Barangay people. Next year ulit!” – Ian Olmedo of the Alon Skimboarding Club
