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.
Featured rider is @fabiiisousaa on IG, from Costa da Caparica, Portugal.
Wszystkiego najlepszego z okazji urodzin, Zuza! || Happy 22nd birthday to flatland shredder Zuza Lirska!
Zuza is from Warsaw, Poland. She has been skimming for 10 years and completed at least 22 times!
Before there were pro divisions, California born & raised Shonna Cobb was a top amateur rider. She won all but one of the nine events she entered.
It’s good to remember our roots, and see how far we’ve come. 2014 is going to be a great skim season!
