Cabo Classic Skimboard Tournament UST
Skimboarding, which was created 70 years ago in California and made its way to Mexico in 2002, has become one of the most revolutionary aquatic sports around. It consists of slipping with a wooden or fiberglass board over the edge of the ocean, and moving quickly through the water to reach the waves and execute a series of tricks. The difference with skimboarding, is the board is 1/5 of that of a surf board, doesn’t have fins, and isn’t used deep in the ocean; rather its utilized for tricks at the edge. More than 50 of the best skimboarders from around the world will come together on the beaches of Los Cabos for this competition. For more information visit https://www.facebook.com/CaboClasicoSkim
