Caleb Bellisle, 20, of Virginia Beach runs down the beach before catching a ride in the OBX Skim Jam held at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head on Saturday, July 16. Nearly 150 men and women athletes showed up for the two-day event held despite small surf. Bellisle, who also plays baseball at Lynchburg (Va.) University, placed third in his men’s division heat.
