VICTORIA SKIMBOARDS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF SKIMBOARDING
Opening viewership globally .......
Laguna Beach, CA – The Victoria Skimboards World Championship of Skimboarding (WCS) has revolutionized the way skimboarding contests are run. From the introduction of the Professional Women's Division to the Live Webcast of the event, the WCS continues to drive the sport of skimboarding into the future all the while pushing the competitors to new heights each and every year.
"The live webcast has changed the game for all riders that enter the WCS" states Victoria Skimboards General Manager Trigg Garner.
"It is no longer five hundred (500) people on the beach watching you skimboard, it is over twenty thousand (20,000) people watching you worldwide. To some this will be debilitating, but to others it will only increase performance and therefore progress the sport of skimboarding."
Last year’s local stand out and contest winner, Sam Stinnett looks to repeat his performance and once again stand on top of the podium but the talented rider pool this year might have something to say about that.
"Sam is an incredible rider with skills for any condition" states professional skimboarder Matthieu Thibaud, but rider's the likes of Blair Conklin, Morgan Just, Teddy Vlasis, Paulo Prietto, and Bill Bryan look to dethrone the champion and take top honors. With every heat stacked and broadcast worldwide, it is anyone's contest!
