OBX Contest – Day 1

Today was a great day for the Zap Skimboards team. Waves were really fun and glassy. Heats were stacked and everyone was skimming at the top of their game. Pro riders Dave “Monster” Armstrong, Max Smetts, Jason Wilson, John Akerman, and Dave Scott all advanced to the semi-finals. Am riders Zach Belmonte, Chris Brown, Dave Bracht, Patrick Monigle, Joe Ryce, and Libby Rendall also advanced through their heats today. It was another very hot day but with the new Zap tent we stayed cool in the shade demoing boards and playing cornhole. Come out tomorrow and try a board out or play some cornhole for some Zap giveaways. Good luck to the team and hope to see everyone again tomorrow!
