Skimboarding is gaining a rapid popularity as a prime boardsport in the world. Here in the Philippines, we have world class skimboarders like Arjun Jimenez from Cebu, Obet Yunuario and Brando Espada from Leyte who will be competing for the first time in Penang, Malaysia for the 5th International Skimboarding Competition this July. This competition is a stepping stone for them to join other international skimboard competition. Arjun, Obet and Brando has a big potential to make it to international skimboarding competitions outside Asia like this competition in Europe.
The European Skimboard League was created in 2009 to promote skimboarding across the world. It’s creation has been seen as one of the finest moments in European skimboarding to date. The league consists of 4 stages mostly held in the Summer months, although UK & Spanish events tend to happen just outside of the holiday season. The stages are held in Portugal, France, The UK & Spain, each hosted at one of the best skimboarding locations found anywhere in the world.
