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.
