New faces went big places at the 2011 World Championships of Skimboarding at Aliso Beach.
The 35th annual championships saw two first-time winners in the Men's and Women's Professional divisions and viewers from around the world taking in all the action from a live feed of the two-day event. The championships started Saturday and concluded with finals action Sunday.
Youth was served in the Men's and Women's Professional divisions, as local athlete Sam Stinnett won the men's title and Catherine Squillante, who traveled from Fredericksburg, Va., claimed the women's crown.
Last year's pro division winners, Morgan Just and Anna Prophet, finished 10th and second, respectively, in the men's and women's finals.
Other division winners were: Brad Dickey (40-and-Up); Paul Wade (30-39); Will Wright (25-29); Johnny Atoe (22-24); Tyler Cruickshank (18-21); Johnny Webber (15-17); Yuoto Kishida (12-14); Casey Ritzer (9-11); Lucas Jablon (8-and-Up) and Lauren Thunen (Women's).
