This year Skim USA celebrated the 30th anniversary of it's longest running event, the East Coast Skimboarding Championships. As competition director Harry Wilson announced his retirement from contest organizing the event changed it's name and transitioned into an all amateur competition: The Zap Amateur World Championships of Skimboarding presented by: Alley_Oop. Now with excess event funds available from not having a professional purse to award funds were put into bringing in top riders from around the globe, high level prizes, a larger beach set up, and documentation of the event by skim cinematographer Tony Bianci . Check out the movie below to see exactly what this event was all about. It is a piece of history that anyone interested in Skimboarding must see! A documentary, reality show, and history lesson all rolled into one. Give yourself a moment to sit down and take in this piece of skimboarding that will entertain you for 35 minutes. This is were we came from and where we're going with this historical event.

The Parlor Mob are good friends and even better musicians, so when Lifer Media was allowed to come snap some shots and capture a few videos we took advantage. For now we have the guys performing “Into The Sun” at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ, but stick around for some most live footage. Also, there are a bunch of images on our Facebook so check out The Parlor Mob Album
