Skim it or surf it? Blair & crew explore Brazil’s latest

News, Television

One of the best surf vloggers out there isn't really a surfer. Blair Conklin's a world-champ skimboarder who happens to surf. And the cool thing with surf tanks is that the lines between both types of wave riding are blurred. Blair gets barreled and boosts big airs easily on both craft. And we love that. Surfing benefits from more craft

News

Blair Conklin is at the center of the foamy-and-finless movement, shredding the gnar at the confluence of skim and surf. 10 years from now we will look back and see Blair's watercraft as either early prototypes of now-standard equipment, or as colorful relics in surfing's hardgoods recycle bin – discarded next to cans of spray-on traction and nose guards.
