How, when and where did you start skimboarding?

When surfing was banned at Recife because of shark' attacks, the solution was to slide with ​bodyboard on the shore. That's how I started skimboarding without knowing it.

Could you tell us more on your local skim scene?

Since we've had shark attacks, there's normally no one at the beach which make easier to skim...But sometimes there are fishermen with rods that limit our space.

 

 If I say “skimquest”, what does it mean to you?

ed. We will show an old VHS to Bruno...

Who is your Skim idol and why?

Blair Conklin because he flows like a feather whenever he's skimming, no one does it like him.

 

What is your best skim memory?

The first time I went to Sununga! I had the chance to meet some great athletes there.

Where would you go to skim?

The Wedge and Cabo San Lucas

 

How do you imagine the future of skimboarding?

I imagine that becoming as important as WSL. It may take a while, but we'll get there. I believe that everything will depend on the union between skimboarders and also between skim brands.

How, when and where did you start skimboarding? 

I started skimboard in 2014. I wanted to surf but the surfboard was too big for me. So, what I found was a skimboard. 

 

Who’s your skimcrew?

PRINCE (JCKC) from Aliveskim. 
Aliveskim is the first skimboard shop in South Korea! We also give skim lessons.

Could you tell us more on your local skim scene? 

In South Korea, skimboard is small. Actually, more people are learning surfing...When I started in 2014 there was only about 20 skimboarders, but now there is more than 100 riders. Korea has a great coast, but we use to have a very cold winter. I live in the Busan area and during winter the temp is around 0-5 degrees celcius.  Hopefully, the number of people coming in winter is increasing a bit. 

If I say “skimquest”, what does it mean to you?

For me, 'skimboard' is life. When I skim, I'm in another dimension, very far away from my daily job...

Who is/are your Skim idol(s) and why?

Obviously there is a lot of good riders but if I have to name one, it would be Paulo Prietto!
I still remember when he though me to skim in Cali three years ago. What an amazing good time!

What is your best skim memory?

My two months skimtrip in Brasil! I cruised a lot with Lucas gomes, and I met many people and skimboarders. I'm very gratefull to Lucas! It was also a great honor to meet the Sununga Crew!

How do you imagine the future of skimboarding?

Skimboard is a great sport and has a lot of opportunities! You can easily ride waves, flat and even indoor. It's also easy to carry. In 10 years it will be as appreciated as surfing.
