Q. What were you doing in the photo?

A. I landed a Boneless.

Q. What is your favorite thing about skimboarding?

A. My Favorite thing about skimboarding is spinning the board, popping over different obstacles and landing new tricks as always.

Q. What are your plans for the 2015 skimboarding season?

A. My First Plan as always is making a tour in different spots here in the Philippines and spreading the unique sport of flatland skimboarding to the people. Second plan is to prepare for the National Flatland Skimboarding competition in Iloilo City, Philippines and find some sponsors to help them in the competition. Third Plan is to vivify the Indoor Flatland Skimboarding here in the Philippines from different Places and Shopping Malls here like in "SM Mall of Asia". My Fourth Plan is to spread as always the stoke of flatland skimboarding and I plan to go to Thailand in June together with my partner Kanchanoc Board from Thailand and help him to spread Flatland Skimboarding there also. My Last Plan also is to start a flatland skimboarding school here in Philippines.

Nikko is an ambitious skimboarder who is very passionate about skimboarding and that was one of the reasons we choose him for the winner. Not to mention landing a boneless is pretty progressive. Thanks again to everyone who entreated the contest and be on the lookout for new contests!
