The 1st local skimboarding competition in La Union gave an exciting high flying wave riding action on the shores of Lingsat in San Fernando, La Union last May 28 and 29 2016.
Everyone were hyped and gave their support to this event. Organized by Rioben Ramos, a skimboarder from Tanauan, Leyte who is now based in La Union gave his time and effort to help grow the local skimboarding scene in La Union. Considered to be one of the hardest boardsports, skimboarder’s goal is to glide across the water surface to meet an incoming breaking wave, and ride it back to shore.
La Union locals showed their wave riding talent and put on an air show during the contest. Mcdo Apilado from Dalumpas dominated the groms division with his unique style combined with surface tricks and aerial attempts.
Here the results.
