One reason why Sea Bright is considered an East Coast hotspot for skimboarding is the annual SkimBash contest. This year’s premier Professional/Amateur skimboarding contest takes place Sept. 11 and 12 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Sea Bright Municipal Beach. SkimBash 2021 is the first 2022 stop on the SkimUSA/ZAP Pro/Am Tour.
This epic community event, which is sponsored locally by Jersey Shore Skim Camp, attracts amateur and professional skimboarders from around the county–and across the country.
The contest comprises 12 amateur divisions–-ranging from 8 years and younger to senior grandmasters. Winners from each amateur division receive trophies and prize bags, while Pro skimboarders compete for a cash purse.
SkimBash 2021 Focus on Environment
SkimBash 2021 continues its focus on environmental initiatives. Winners of each division are presented with a one-of-a-kind handmade trophy, created entirely from beach debris and driftwood collected along Jersey Shore beaches.
