OBX Skim Camps was founded in 2013 by former professional skimboarder Watkins Holt and avid skimboarding instructor Matt Preston. Over the past fifteen years, Matt and Watkins have watched the sport evolve exponentially on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The purpose of OBX Skim Camps is to provide a safe, fun environment for campers of all ages and skill levels to enhance their board riding abilities and expand their knowledge of the sport.
The camps will be located at Milepost 16.5 at Jennette’s Pier, now one of the elite fishing piers and surfing destinations of the east coast. Known for having a deep sandbar near the coastline, the beach break at Jennette’s Pier provides optimal conditions for all skill levels. In addition to a universal skimboarding wave, the area provides ample parking (for free!), public showers and bathrooms, and a great selection of local restaurants within walking distance.
The camps will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week. All participants must arrive at the campsite by 9:45 AM on that Tuesday, so as to be fitted for boards and to complete registrations and payments. The camps will begin at 10:00 AM sharp and end at 12:00 noon each day. If there is a cancellation due to foul weather, makeup days will be held on that Friday.
Parents are encouraged to be actively engaged during the camp, but they do ask that you respect the boundaries of the instructor/student interaction and allow their experienced instructors to do what they do best!
Campers are required to bring minimal materials to the camp: board shorts (swimming trunks) and a towel are the only things absolutely necessary to be a camper. While OBX Skim Camps will be providing water and sunscreen for the campers, they suggest that you also provide a snack and any additional amenities that you may want while at the camp. Remember, it does last the entire two hours!
Two hours in the sun will wear anyone of any age down! The camp is designed to provide breaks throughout the day. While there will be a designated break to rehydrate and snack, there will also be activities outside of skimboarding available to all participants to take advantage of at their discretion.
Register online or print out and sign a copy of your registration and waiver to bring with you on the first day of camp. The price of the camp is $150. OBX Skim Camps accepts all major credit cards. Payment is due on Tuesday when the camp begins.
