Florida Pro/Am

2020    Fl Skimboarding Pro/Am information below

The Florida Skimboarding Pro/Am (Fl Pro/Am) is the Third longest running Professional ( Now that the Dewey contest is back to  a Pro/Am event, I will place them back to where they deserve to be, Tex created the First, Harry followed and then I added the Pro division to my event in 1996) and Third longest running Amateur Skimboarding tournament in the World


The Fl Pro/Am is the only Amateur event in the World that allows each athlete two chances to advance before being eliminated. This tournament runs more divisional heats than any other Skimboarding Tournament in the World, spanning three full days and over hour 30 hours of individual heats . Skimboarding athletes come from more than 75 different beaches from all over Florida, the USA, and the World.


A Skimboarding tournament dream that started once I moved from Tampa to Vilano Beach, Florida USA in February of 1989. Though it took well over a year to get everthing in order to hold an event (The very first was Oct 1990).  This tournament has always been my gift back to Skimboarding for all of my best sessions, contest personal results, Skimboard Magazine publications from early 80's Florida Skimboarding, lifelong friendships, and wonderful memories. The Fl Pro/Am has always been an end of summer bash that has grown to excede any and all of my expectations or dreams. Over the years and into the future, many of my Skimboarding friends as well as  personal family members, have helped me each and every year fullfil this dream for the sport of Skimboarding. Thanks for all of their help during this event from start to finish.


All of us hope we help make those same memories for you and your families, all while striving to win bragging rights for  a year as Champions in your division in one of the greatest Skimboarding Tournaments on EARTH !!!  


I hold this event for you, the Skimboarder !!

Thanks for competing in the Florida Pro/Am, all of us wish you the Best of Luck !!
