By Aaron Peluso Last weekend 37 of the best pro skimboarders in the world converged upon Cabo San Lucas for the annual Cabo Clasico.  This year’s pro field was particularly ‘international’ drawing competitors from Portugal, Brazil, Hawaii, mainland USA, and of course… Mexico.  However the country list doesn’t do justice to just how diverse this competition was.  Brazil’s top riders… Continue »

Kalemba Skim: Angola

Surprisingly, there is a group of young children in Angola, a country on Africa’s Southwestern coast, who have taken to the beach to skimboard. The ‘boards’ they use are not something most people would consider a skimboard. They use whatever they… Continue »
