2010 East Coast Surfing Championships
Since it's first event in 1963, my hometown of Virginia Beach holds the annual East Coast Surfing Championships.There are hundreds of spectators, live performances, auto-races, food, and music from all across the Hampton Roads and beyond. I'm a beach lover and an avid skimboarder. Not many people know much about skimboarders or have seen it as much of a sport. Though it doesn't receive the amount of attention than that of surfing does, it remains as an underground sport that has evolved onto a whole new level.
At the time I was filming this event I was having a lot of sinus problems. My ears were clogged and I couldn't hear much from anyone around me. Me and a local skimboard community known as Virginia Beach Skimmunity House took part in the event and I provided media coverage for the competitors.
