Hard Bay

Summertime flatspells were having us eager to catch any wave, so when the small hiccup of swell splashed the indicator rocks, we were gunning it on the 15 horsepower dingee...   When we arrived to the offshore island, we small troughy siders and clean wraps surging thru and we could'nt help smiling...

SATURDAY, JUNE 22nd (Tentative), 2013
Morningstar Beach, St. Thomas, USVI

             Eight years!! Skim Slam has definitely made its mark on St. Thomas and this year SKIMCARIBBEAN is determined to bring this little contest to yet another level. The 2013 event once again promises to be a step forward toward a more positive and greener community. Skimming is a healthy activity that builds confidence, camaraderie, and a respect for the coastal environment. In the past few years, Skimcaribbean has been offering summer and weekend skim camps for local youths. We are proud to say that one of our riders Alejandro Lopez placed 37th in the world in professional skimboarding in 2012.
Last year the 7th annual Skim Slam had 45 contestants, Ages 2-30+. Prizes were awarded for the top five riders in the five divisions. 2012 was a complete success thanks to the enthusiasm of all who participated! You can help us make 2013 even better. We are requesting help from our friends and past sponsors, as well as exploring new avenues for promoting skimboarding in the Caribbean. This years’ event is coming up quickly and there is a lot to do!  We need your help to pull it off.
Here are a few things we have planned for this year.
§       Full color posters and flyers
§       Full color event decals
§       2013 banner and advertising
§       2013 event T-shirts
§       Skimboards for the winners
§       “Green” Supplies (biodegradable plates, cups, etc.)
§       2013 Commemorative Skimslam merchandise
§       Breakfast and lunch for all competitors
§       Awards for top riders (surf/skim industry related merchandise)
§       Judges scaffolding
§       PA system and DJ
§       Live musical entertainment

            Skimcaribbean would like to thank everyone that has encouraged and helped in our efforts to give kids another venue to express their talents. With your help, we can continue to support the growth of this positive sport.
            We are looking for monetary donations as well as donations of goods or services that could help with this years event. Companies that donate receive representation (logo and business or group name) on Skim Slam 2013 advertisements and marketing (e.g. Posters, Flyers and banners, as well as a link on skimcaribbean.com), plus a sponsor package filled with Skimslam goodies!
