About the event

Pond Skim National Championships 2023

We regret to advise that due to reducing snow cover and the forecast for the coming week the event is unable to proceed. 

It's all about crazy costumes, silly stunts and a giant outdoor pool party with matching Pirate Life Beer Garden on Bourke St to celebrate the 150th year of Pond Skim National Championships at Mt Buller. An event that is just dripping with so much history, it's one not to miss!



Thanks for your interest in competing in the elite annual FIPS Pond Skim National Championships for the 150th year celebration. Despite being recognised as the National Championships and fully homologated and sanctioned by FIPS, you don't need to follow an athlete pathway from your local pond skimming club, through the state league, to reach national glory. Just give it a crack. Just like Alma did.

Win lots of MEGA PRIZES like:

  • CA$H
  • A Season Membership (for next season not this one)
  • Skis and boards
  • Snow Dough
  • Lots of Pirate Life

This year entry price to be announced shortly. You can enter as a team or individual, or both (need to enter twice).

The judging is based a little on your jump and choreography, but the majority of the score comes from the costume. The more topical the better. So get cracking on your outfits and contraptions.

A few key points:
  • The majority of the score comes from your costume - the more topical the better! ** Don't worry too much about making it across ;)
  • Custom music tracks for your run can be played by the DJ for full choreography. Details available upon registration
  • No sharp objects or items which could result in serious injury (we punctured the liner once and took out half of the lower village)
  • Helmets are compulsory
  • Don't drink and skim
  • Two runs may be permitted if time allows
  • ** Please note, there must be no fabric covering your face (such as morphsuits or inflatable costumes)
