Danny Diaz has been crowned winner of the Tour Lafkenche Skimboard 2014, in Chile.

Skimboarding is probably the only wave sport in which you have to run for the waves. Literally. And that was exactly what riders did in the three rounds of the Tour Lafkenche Skimboard 2014, held in Chile.

With surf drones in the air capturing all the action, it's interesting to watch how South Americans are keen to skimboard and put up highly competitive events.

Jack Tenney and Casey Kiernan have conquered the Boardwalk Blow Up 2014, in Indialantic, Florida.

Two days of waves, and plenty of smiles. The Boardwalk Blow Up 2014 run multiple divisions in the white sands of the Floridian town.

Light winds and high tides proved to be the best conditions for high-end skimboarding. In the Women's competition, Casey Kiernan displayed front and backside arsenal to claim the trophy.
