The Victoria Skim contest is this weekend, saturday and sunday, at Aliso in Laguna Beach. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make this years contest, but have seen many good ones in the past. Victoria Skimboards is also claiming to be increasing the bandwidth on it's "Aliso Cam", so perhaps you can see some skimming from there.

Taking foam pieces that were normally headed for the dumpster and using them in production, Victoria Skimboards has decreased our overall landfill contribution by about thirty percent (30%) says owner Tex Haines. The boards are guaranteed not to break along any seem in the foam for the life of the board.
Having tested this theory in the early years of the business and throughout the thirty (30) plus years has proven the method to work for skimboarding. We have had years of experience building boards which occasionally had an extra piece glued on to make the most of a blank that was too short and none ever came back broken anywhere near those seams states Tex Haines.
It is one step in a refining process but one we are proud of and ready to share with all of you.

Spending some time in my home town, and getting a few skimboarding sessions in. Dropped by Victoria Skimboards today and took a few photos. The final image is of a 1976 Tex Haines, Victoria Skimboard founder. Thanks Trigg!
