    2022 OBX Skim Jam Recap

    Every year we look forward to going up to North Carolina to take part in the OBX Skim Jam. There isn't any other place quite like the Outer Banks and the 5th Stop of the Skim USA Tour usually delivers very fun waves. This year was no exception as we were graced with fun 1-3' swell the entire weekend that provided great contest conditions.  

    We kicked off the weekend on Friday night by having a skim session at Jennette's Pier where the contest was held and the Skim USA crew hosted a bonfire with a Pro Signing. It was a lot of fun to meet everyone that came out and kick off the weekend on the right foot.

    The OBX Skim Jam is the 2nd Stop on the United Skim Tour for the Professional Men and 1st Stop for the Professional Women. We would like to give a special shout out to the contest organizers (John & Wendy Caputo, Watkins Holt) for putting together an amazing Pro purse of 10K. You could tell in the Competition that the riders had a little extra something to skim for!

    With that being said, there was quite a few close exchanges and man on man heats that could've gone either way. It was very exciting to watch. Zap team rider Yahir Valencia stood out and was in one of these close heats in the Semi Final where Dane Cameron just got the best of him. Yahir had another solid result though finishing 3rd Place. In the end, Lucas Fink was solid all weekend and took home his 2nd consecutive victory on the UST Tour. 

    In the Womens Pro division, Zap Team Rider Casey Kiernan got off to a fast start on the United Skim tour by taking the top spot over her fellow teammate Alex Yokely. The girls were ripping and it was a lot of fun watching them going back and forth. Special shout out to Sydney Pizza for holding it down with a solid 4th place finish in her first Professional event.

     A few other special notes:

    • Bruno Sa took home the biggest air award. He won on a Kerrupt flip. He was ripping all weekend long.
    • The Mens division was stacked with Zap Team riders. Congrats to Dylan Duncan on taking the top spot. Zeke and ET were posting high scores all weekend and were right on Dylan's heels.
    • Congrats to newest Zap Team Rider SkimG on Winning first in the Minis Division. He is light years ahead in skill for his age!
