Blair Conklin is a gentleman you’ll surely be getting to know better in the coming years. Hailing from Laguna Beach, California, Blair’s regarded as the best skimboarder in the world, but that’s not what piqued our interest in the Berkeley grad.
Back in 2018, in the lead up to Stab High, Blair posted a clip on Instagram. In it, he was soaring in Waco on a sub-five-foot foamie; it was impressive. For our inaugural Texan surf party/competition (Stab High), the Laguna Beach and Skim community rallied behind Blair’s golden locks, giving him the public-voted wildcard into the event. And when the rest of the surfers at Stab High showed up with bags bearing anywhere from three to five surfboard, Blair rocked up to the BSR Surf Resort with a tiny case carrying a miniature slice of foam. He then proceeded to blow up and further stamp a space for himself in the world of surf.
