Aug. 14, 2012 – Skimboarding has had a home in Dewey for more than three decades, back when the world amateur skimboarding competition was first held in the small Delaware beach town. Now in its 31st year, the Zap Amateur Skimboarding Championship brings in competitors from California, Alabama, Portugal and Brazil, not to mention a heaping helping of Delaware locals. In Dewey, skimmers start as young as five, taught by their fathers, older brothers and big sisters. The beach’s skim-friendly geography, as well as the tradition and culture of the local skimboarding community, have made Dewey one of the world’s premiere skimboarding destinations.
