Friends and I spent a morning and a good part of the afternoon watching a skim board competition. It was really exciting to watch all levels of abilities compete, 4 at a time within their age, pro or semi-pro groups. It was very inspiring watching them run full tilt into an oncoming wave, throw their boards down and jump on it for either a great ride out and back, a lateral ride with tricks or just plain crashes. They stand and watch and watch for the right wave and moment. A coloured paddle is held up for the competitor in that shirt colour for the right away but anyone goes. Very fun and exciting to watch. The competitors said the water and waves were not optimal so a lot of standing, waiting and watching was done within their timed allotment.
