“The Vic” – World’s Largest Skim Contest

August 17, 2019 - August 18, 2019

In May this year, the Pros’ United Skim Tour began 2018’s seasonal run for the crown at a full-on gallop. The Tour hits both coasts, with Cabo San Lucas and Santa Cruz early in the season, followed by East Coast Outer Banks (NC) and Dewey Beach, Delaware continuing to rack up points for frontrunners.

Nothing, however is bigger than “The Vic” Skim Contest, the granddaddy event of them all. And it all happens again this year on the weekend of Aug. 17th and 18th, 2019 at Aliso Creek Beach. Initially a sport for just the boys, girls and women entered the scene several years ago and continue to pull in championing crowds each year on the beach.

Year to year, the worldwide leaderboard tends to belong to South Laguna (SoLag) skimboarders who began skimming as mere groms, i.e. Blair Conklin, Sam Stinnett and East Coast’s Austin Keen, who transplanted himself here so long ago that we all figure he was born here. Given that skimboarding was actually and officially launched many decades ago in South Laguna Beach, it’s no surprise that Laguna’s own continue to dominate the worldwide scene. This year, however, we’ve seen some jostling from the East Coast crowd.

Surf is supposed to be cooperating this weekend, and the crowds will be large. Come on down to see the sport that was invented right here on our SoLag beaches.
