A contrario de l'année précédente, la météo réservée aux compétiteurs n'a pas était des plus clémente. Le vent s'étant invité dès la fin de matinée, les conditions de vague étaient dégradées dès le premier tour.

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!
Where would you go to skim?
In front of my house at Songjeong Beach.
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.
Besides skimboarding, what do you enjoy/other interests?
Skateboarding and Surfskateboarding!
Anybody to thanks?
I would like to thank our ALIVESKIM TEAM who always supports us. I wish to all skimboarders around the world to have fun and safe skimboarding! Special thanks to JEJE!!!
"Endless beaches, timeless ruins, welcoming people, oodles of elephants, rolling surf, cheap prices, fun trains, famous tea and flavourful food make Sri Lanka irresistible." says the Lonely Planet
Cruising from the economic capital Colombo to Dumbulla Buddha caves temple; hiking the 200 meters high of Lion rock fortress at Sigiriya built by King Kasyapa; relaxing in the incredible Royal Botanical Gardens of Kandy; taking the train to capture the most scenic route ever; trekking across lush green tea plantations; searching for elephants, crocodiles and buffalos; crashing at Axel Fullbit's home paradise in Meddawatta on the South coast; surfing and exploring new skim spots;
it was an amazing trip and also a skim quest...
Before leaving, a Buddhist monk gave me this enigmatic message :" UST Ceylon East Coast Liners 2019"
Video to come...

Le skimboard est un sport de glisse, dérivé du Surf pour la glisse et du Skate pour les manœuvres. Il consiste pour les débutants à glisser sur le bord de l'eau, au dessus de la pellicule d'eau du bord de plage. Mais la véritable pratique consiste à surfer la vague qui brise au bord (shorebreak).
