Delaware is a mecca for skimboarding — the Southern Delaware coast is known for its sometimes dangerous shorebreak (i.e: waves that don’t break until they hit the beach) — which means it’s perfect for gliding and performing air maneuvers.

The Zap Pro/Am World Championship of Skimboarding returned to Dewey Beach from August 9 to 11, in tandem with the beaches-wide Summer Vibes Fest.
