The water temperature was 77 degrees on Saturday in Panama City Beach Saturday, but that couldn't keep 50 skim boarders out of the Gulf of Mexico for Into The Blue Surf and Skate Shop's 2nd Annual Skimtoberfest. The competition was the brainchild of Destin Smith, who saying he's always wanted to do something to help the local kids in the community.
"We just try to keep the kids out of trouble," he said Saturday. "This is a party town, spring break town. There's lots of drinking and all sorts of other stuff can kind of pull you in a different direction. Keeping these kids out of trouble, giving them something to do on the weekend. This town needs a culture. It needs more skim culture."
