Skimboarding tricks: slide and splash

East Coast Skimboards and Monkey Business have teamed up to reward the best progressive skimboarders of the world's greatest wedges.

The skimming brands will be delivering $100 to the best trick of the month. The best trick at the end of the three months will receive an additional $150 and a prize pack featuring a limited edition George Bryan Pro Model Monkey Business Skateboard.

The concept is simple and rad. The difficulty of the trick will be the main focus of the competition, not the quality of the wave or terrain. The rider must get on their board with a standard run, drop, and slide technique.

The contest is open to all riders, all locations and all terrain. The finalists for each month will be selected by viewer comments, with the winner being voted on by the public at the end of the month. To enter you only need to upload your clip to East Coast Skimboards Facebook page.

Riders can enter as many times as they like but will be asked to show proof of the date of the trick when selected into the voting round. Please avoid any injuries, lost skimboards, internet trolls, dinged rails, or one night stands.

Surf forecasting is the process or method of predicting the behavior of swells and the breaking of the waves near the coastline.
