Shore Breaks: Apple Tree Resort Hotel’s Skimboarding Competition a Success!
Last May 16, 2015, I was invited to witness the Skim Boarding Competition dubbed as "Shore Breaks" which was hosted by Cagayan de Oro’s leading resort hotel, Apple Tree Resort and Hotel.
The competition was divided into two categories. The Kids category from 7 to 15 years old and adult category from 16 years old and above. All the skimmers showed off their skim boarding skills that ran from morning 7am until 6pm.
The event was created in order to promote the sport to Northern Mindanao and provides opportunities to the youth to actively engage in programs and activities which upholds the quality of life. It also create and develop an understanding of the importance of sport in the pursuit of a healthy and active lifestyle and to persevere in order to achieve success.
Skim-boarding or skimming is board-sport similar to surfing which takes place near the shore and uses a skimboard in order to glide across the water’s surface to meet an incoming, breaking wave, shorebreak, and ride it back to shore.
