Come one, come all to the most ultimate pond skim Valley County has ever seen! The Tam Fam is calling all brave skiers and riders ready to huck it for the second annual State of Idaho Pond Skim Championship on Saturday, April 1, 2017.

Registration begins at 9:30AM and ends at 11am on the Canoe Grill Patio and you’ll want to arrive early because we’re only accepting 100 competitors. Participants must be 13 years and older- those under 18 years of age should bring a parent or guardian to sign the release waiver. You can print it off and bring to registration. Competition will begin at noon. After-Splash Party will begin right after the competition has concluded and will feature a live DJ.


Competitors will be judged on four criteria:

  1. Style: How steezy, easy, or ticky you make it look.
  2. Outfit: The retro-est onesies, tutu’s, superhero outfits, wetsuits, prom dresses- We don’t care, just wear something and make it cool- (Keep it family friendly for the kiddo’s)!
  3. Cross: If you cross it the first time, you will go again from a lower distance.
  4. Wipe-out: Biggest splash, hardest hit, or largest waves.

Prizes will be given out for gnarliest wipe-out, best outfit, and overall winner. The overall winner will have to cross twice and have a sweet costume and will receive the 4′ trophy.
