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.
