Skimboarding is now being noticed as one of the fastest growing boardsports in the world. The freestyle aspects of inland skimboarding were pioneered in the early 1980s by two Sacramento locals: Launie Porteous and Mark Robinson. Influenced by the emerging skateboard scene, Launie and Mark started adapting their newfound skateboarding skills to skimboarding and the concept of freestyle skimboarding was born. This freestyle adaptation has led to what is now considered the true definition of this sport.

Recently in Poland, Red Bull sponsored a skaimboarding contest. Poland is known for having a longtime hardcore skimboarding community, and talented riders. Manufaktura proved to be the perfect scenario for a successful urban skim event. The Red Bull Skim It 2014 attracted 40 of the best skimmers in the country to compete in a specially-designed set, full of sliding challenges and obstacles.
