Frontside Flips on a Skimboard

Frontside flips are not easy especially on a skimboard. Blake Zimmerman makes it look easy though. We were going through some old photos and stumbled across these two of Blake landing multiple frontside flips on a Bamboo Pro prototype at the 2012 Kyda Skim Jam in White Rock, British Columbia and had to post them. We would love to see more photos and video of people landing any flip tricks on their skim. Feel free to send them over to and we might throw it up on the blog. We still have a few Bamboo Pros left and 20% off on the board. Who knows it might just help you land a flip like Blake.
