SKIM2LIVE (wrap up)

Team riders Isaac Thomas, Tony Saddler and Emile Panerio headed to Cypress, Texas this past weekend to participate in the 4th annual Skim to Live, a Breast Cancer Fundraiser via skimboarding. The guys arrived in Texas Friday around 2:00pm and were skimming from 4:00pm until sundown. Lot's of filming went down at Cypress Creek-the local skim spot which was an awesome place to skimboard. The Event took place Saturday and the team filmed bright and early before the event. Skim to Live was an enormous event. Over 600 people showed up at the creek to watch and over 8000 dollars was raised toward the battle against Breast Cancer. The contest was awesome, with some progressive riding seen in all divisions as well as some creative and well built features. Ryan Efaw and his close friend Carey Seyler put on the event and did a sick job. Huge shout out to Ryan and his family for their hospitality and to Carey and the rest of the Cypress crew that helped with the event, it was an amazing and humbling weekend.
