I am putting out ‘feelers’ to gauge interest from the skimboard community regarding possible attendance to a Canadian skim jam. We have yet to decide the exact date, but it would most likely be happening in early spring(Feb-March), as that is when the waves are the biggest/gnarliest waves show up. The jam is being organized and coordinated by myself (Brett) and Brandon Wright (www.skimbc.com). Brandon just got back a few weeks ago from a road trip in California, and from the information he gathered while meeting numerous pros/ams/groms down there, there was considerable interest in heading north for a comp/jam.
Everything would go down in Port Renfrew, located approximately 200 km north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island. You could camp, but the town has motel/hotel/B&Bs, a liquor store and a pub. You really don’t need much else for a weekend. The jam would occur over a 2-3 day window, giving mother nature a chance to deliver some decent swell. And yes, you are going to need a wetsuit. The thicker the better!
Feel free to PM me or email (email@example.com) with questions. We are in the early stages of lining up sponsors, so any interested sponsors feel free to drop me a line.
