Have you heard the news that women’s pro #ust2013 champ Keiao Bucasas has a new pro model board with Exile Skimboards!?!! Super stoked for both KGB, as well as the sport for offering more diverse options for the consumer! || Photos: Top left corner is KGB’s S Pro Shape board showcased on the website; the rest of the photos I believe were taken by Yoshihiro Oda. Top right action shot is Yukari Omachi, two photos on the left are Kaori Oda and the large photo is of (left to right) Yukari, Keiao and Kaori! Nice to see the Japanese skimmers visiting Hawaii and Keiao! #skimboarding

It is Portuguese photographer & fellow skimboarder Artur Costa’s birthday. I adore photographers who take great action shots of our pros. Artur is special because he captures both the guys and girls consistency in Portugal.
He is currently doing a project with the women which I am excited to see! He has given us a taste by sharing the top photo with includes Maria Fontan, Sofia Lopes, Pipa Pinto, Sara Curado, Maria Marques and Raquel Almeida!
The bottom photo is a #tb of Sara competing two years ago. You can see more of Artur’s photos on the FreeSkimMag Facebook Page

Have you watched pro flatland rider Lexi Hutchings’ new skim video by Toeknee Bianchi yet!?
It is so good!! It doesn’t matter if you’re a girl or boy, Lexi will inspire you in this video! It’s my new favorite video of the flatland extraordinaire.
Make sure to check it out on YouTube. Account - Toekneeabc123 and look in uploaded videos.
Remember to always do warm-up stretches before skimboarding! This goes for all sports, to help with not getting injuries.
