Brad Domke Wins Vilano Pro / Am

Friday afternoon started off hotter than ever when a nearby BP station exploded into a giant fireball. The same couldn’t be said about the conditions for the 2011 Vilano Pro/Am, but that didn’t stop the stoke.

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 »
