Bill Bryan is said to have done more for the sport of skimboarding than anybody else.
Bill can take any board and be better than you at it. Surfing, snowboarding, skimboarding, and he also became one of the world's best flow riders. That is the standing wave event with the water running at the slope to create a constant wave and they ride them with tiny little board like skate decks that float.
Fourteen time world champion in skimboarding? Actually, I believe it is fifteen or more now... And countless, literally, other contest wins in contests up and down the California coast, up and down the East Coast, and most notably the Cabo contest in Mexico (considered the most significant skimboarding contest today).
Beaker has a son and a daughter. He has towed in to Teahupoo with a skimboard and surfed a natural standing wave in the Zambezi River, an extremely dangerous idea considering the speed at which the water moves there and the unforgiving nature of the rapids.
