Some of the best skim boarders from

in Bradenton Beach, last year drew more than 500 spectators
and 100 participants and proved to be one of the finest

top three will receive trophies and prizes will go to
the top four.
Once again, The Sun newspaper is one of the events
sponsors and will provide the trophies as well as complete
