SEA BRIGHT – The ninth annual SkimBash skimboarding competition returns to the borough on Sept. 8-9.
The Sea Bright event is part of Skim USA’s 2012 East Coast Pro/Am Tour schedule, so this points-accredited, high-energy, exciting event is sure to offer thrills for all ages – both competitors and spectators.
From beginners to professionals, skimboarders will gather for the two-day event to show off their skills and compete for prizes. The pro division showcases the country’s best skimboarders, who compete for a cash purse.
The contest runs from early morning until about 4 p.m. each day. Families, teens and young adults gather at Sea Bright’s beach to cheer on contestants and show their support for the local skimboarding community. Parking and beach admission are free.
“The September SkimBash is a tradition in Sea Bright,” said Felecia Stratton, SkimBash contest director and regional vice president of Skim USA, the nonprofit association that governs skimboarding competitions. “We held our first SkimBash nine years ago in September, and it has become an annual event that both skimboarders and spectators look forward to.”
Premium sponsors include The Two River Times™, Skim City, Jersey Shore Skim Camp, ZAP Skimboards, Yo Mon Frozen Yogurt in Red Bank and Freehold, Woody’s Ocean Grille in Sea Bright, Bahrs Landing in Highlands and Verizon.
