The official 2019 Skim USA Tour schedule has been released.

The amateur, youth-focused skimboarding circuit founded on the east coast of the United States will run five events in 2019.

The 2019 Skim USA Tour kicks off in March, in Florida, and wraps up in August, in Delaware.

The names of the riders that will take part in Team Skim USA have also been announced.

Team Skim USA is a funded program that sends four skimboarders to an international competition so that they can improve their riding skills and contact with foreign cultures.

The selection of the riders takes into consideration performance, but also their overall attitude as sportsmen and sportswomen.

In 2019, Alex Sheckells will represent the boys division, while Brady Green will ride in the junior men's category. Sydney Pizza will compete in the women's division, and Timmy Vitella will surf in the men's event.

The organization led by Amanda Pace also revealed that the 2020 Skim USA Tour will kick off with the New Jersey Skim Bash, on September 21-22.
