Sea-zing 2015

Happy New Year!

Bit too late for a greeting but we intended it that way. We let everything settle down first, and then we set off our big bang a week later. The last day of the first week of the year, if the first day of the year is the first day of the week of the year. A mouthful of obvious riddle, more or less ridiculous.

Anyway, everyone knows our year will not start until the Skim Love event(?) concludes. We warn everyone to lower expectations as always. Skim Love may sound big, but it is really a small occasion. Nothing fancy. Nothing crazy. Just a simple day at the beach with the skimboarders with so much love, kindness and generosity.

We hope this year Padagata resurfaces and stays afloat to share more oceanic experiences - skimboarding or something else. We just needed a sense of mystery for the past few years. Our low tide as we call it. There is no harm in just laying low, especially in this age of share and like buttons.  Remember that sharing is not an obligation. It is a free and conscious gesture. We are just saying. :P

Cheers to 2015!

Skim Love 2015 Activities

We are thrilled that The Skim Love Project event has reached its third instalment within six years. The event is supposedly a skimboarders-only occasion, wherein we present tokens of recognition to talented skimboarders. But the last two events have exceeded our intention. We are still so amazed of the immense attendance from spectators.

Because of this, we officially open the 2015 Skim Love to the public. We declare this Skim Love is for everybody. We dedicate this event to all those non-skimboarders, who help the skimboarding community out of a compassionate intuition. We sincerely acknowledge the effort and support.
