I've seen alot of other forums about sports have Summits and thought it would be awesomely epic for one with SkimOnline. A summit is like a huge meeting for a weekend or something at some beach (in this case) for a weekend of partying, skimming and whatever the hell else it includes. I'm not exactly sure where or when it would be, but just putting the idea out there cus i know alot of you guys (and girls) would like to do this. I dunno maybe if Peluso or someone else executive wants to organize it that would be a sick oppurtunity for everyone to meet. we could probably get discounts to stay places if we had enough people. WE could just designate the beach and people could just come out and skim anytime they wanted to during the day and meet others. Just putting the idea out there.

EDIT: i also think it would be smart yo just start a poll as too where we wanted it to be and when. Like first would decide the state(Florida, Cali, NC etc..) and then the beach, and then the date. or something in that order

There isnt enough alcohol in one place to handle this whole message board. Or in ZBR's case, enough date rape drugs.

sounds like a good idea

Yeah I think Ryon Graf wanted to do this a long time ago... or someone from the west. Maybe there could be two for the east and west, but one would be tuff.

might be a good idea to have one on the east coast and one on the west coast, cuz i doubt many people will go across the nation for this.

edit: narwhal beat me to it

samcollett

yeah graf proposed this on the old boards. the problem you'd run into here is that a lot of the kids here are underage. their parents could come, but also you have the problem of guys that live on the east coast vs. guys that live on the west coast. it would be best to do one in the east and one in the west.

Of course all of the cool people would be at the east coast one.. Actually unless it was florida I wouldn't go.

same. or new orleans.

i mean seriously, if you guys are in it for the alcohol, new orleans is where it's at.

I'm sold. Sam Collett, his big truck, alcohol, southern girls. How the hell could it get any better? Film it all and we could make a skim video, and a Girls Gone Wild-esque video.

Why don't we have a flatland lake skim in Iowa, so it's halfway between the East and West coats so its fair.

Gotta be fair.

One would be sick as hell but so unrealistic. Yeah we should have it in Laguna next week when I'll be there ;)

i would be down. find a place to shack whether on the beach or a cheap ass motel and get shitty and skim. best skim is on both east and west coast, and its doubtful that either party will want to travel to the other coast. In cali socal like Aliso would be a good spot...and on the East side most kids are in Fl, so some place with good break whether boardwalk, sebastian, wherever else.

Well there needs to be polls then to determine the beach and a big advance notice to the workers on the boards.

the whole point of this is to travel, I say some place central with a little more consistancy than FL, maybe OBX or DE or something.

You'd have to do it in regions. This is exactly what Reckless did 2 years ago. Everyone from New England (alot of us found each other on here) met up on Cape Cod for a weekend of pure skim. We had people from Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticuit I think. It was a time to be had. We messed with so many people and just had a ton of fun walking around and skimming during the day, we managed a mini contest with about 12-15 kids. We're hoping to do the same this summer.

We've done the same thing on a smaller scale at East Beach, which was fucking fun as hell as well.

I would strongly suggest if people are willing, to organize this in your own region.
