    2024 Spring Fling Skim Jam VIDEO RECAP

    Words: Jason Wilson // Video: @devindmedia

    The fourth annual Spring Fling Skim Jam returned to Nokomis Beach, FL on May18th and 19th. The Skim USA competition brought out top professional and amateur riders from around the country to mix it up and compete with the local skim community. It was an extra hot weekend full of waves, good competition, and great vibes!

    Yes, waves! You heard it correctly. We had a really fun rideable skim on the Gulf all weekend throughout the competition. This made for the most exciting Spring Fling yet. It gave local riders a chance to show their full range of skills including wraps and liners after the past year's flat ground tech fest. Professionals had the opportunity to dazzle the crowd with big airs, long rides, and combos that had the entire beach fired up!

    Professional Gerardo Valencia skimmed on another level all weekend despite a muscle strain, showing why he is one of the strongest competitors in all conditions. Him and Mason Broussard were matched up against each other again in the final just like last month's Skim USA event in Panama City Beach, FL. This time Gerardo was not letting Mason out skim him despite a strong performance by Mason. 

    Women's pro Sydney Pizza hit her second 540 shuv in competition and put on an inspiring performance all weekend helping us run the competition and coaching other young skimmers. 

    In the amateur divisions we had many winners including Gio Tomasi- 1st Place Menehune, Graham Shelton- 1st Place Jr. Men, and Cj Lugo- 1st Place Masters & 2nd Place Semi Pro. The entire team showed out all weekend ripping in and out of the water to inspire the youth and help us run a really solid skimboarding competition. We encourage you to join us next year. 

    Be sure to join us this weekend at the Jackalope Fest in Virginia Beach, VA for the Skimmunity Showdown on 6/1-6/2.
