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.
Plenty of guys and gals look to practice on small incoming waves right next to the contest area. It was a hot day, but the ocean water was perfect temperature for skimming and swimming; it was right around 74 degrees.
