About The Kayotics Pro Series Skimboards

Pro Series Skimboards are designed and inspired by our global team of riders. Made from 1/16″ Canadian maple, pressed between a top and bottom sheet of high pressure laminate offering a base hard as nails. Kayotics is the first to introduce full colour digital printed HPL graphic bases. A Pro Series top is made with laminate and topped off with a 3m adhesive digitally printed pre moulded 5mm EVA foam cushions hard landings and reduces heel bruising and no messy wax. Pro boards are intended for harder use and more smooth and technical riding. So whether you’re popping tricks over rocks and tree stumps or getting technical with a bench, the pro series will help you stomp tricks and ride them out.

Inspired by the 90’s Modern pop art loosely based on Fresh prince of Bel-air. Designed to stand out and shine bright as the sun. When you pop your board up this graphic surely do the same in photos and videos. Run your shorts and a tank top to match and get steezy all day long.

The Raza Pro employs the Sac Pro shape for it’s benefits that will enable you to progress your flatland tricks and technical jibs.

This skimboard is still very stable and just waiting to help you with you skimboard-tech game. Go big with the Raza Pro!

Sac Pro

sac-main_1

Straight out of Sacramento’s flatland furnace comes the hell-ridden 2015 Sac Pro. This year’s model embodies the essence of gnar through an exceptional artistic aesthetic. Designed by Beau Thomas, one of the most talented artists from within the flatland community, the board’s full-frame base graphic captures the murderous potential that can only be found when riding the Sac-Pro. Structurally, this year’s Sac Pro incorporates the profile and flex pattern of the original Sac Pro designed by team rider Adam Balaam. Like its predecessor, the 2015 version unveils itself as the leader in responsive maneuvers and technical tricks for advanced to professional riders. A wider base provides more surface area for faster skimming, while shorter tip to tail length reduces swing weight making rotations much faster. Side cuts along the tail and nose provide hydrodynamic planes allowing the board to snap off of the water and into effortless shuvs.

Freewaters Adds Skimboarding World Champion Austin Keen to Ambassador Team

Austin-Keen_photoAndre-Magarao

Freewaters footwear announces the addition of United Skim Tour World Champion Austin Keen to its ambassador team.

“My connection to the ocean originally comes from surfing,” explains Keen. “But growing up on the Georgia coastline involves patience through flat spells. Picking up a skimboard is the best thing I have ever done to stay connected with the water. I am stoked to join Freewaters and be a part of a footwear brand that understands the healing power of water.”

The Savannah, Georgia-born skimboard icon grew up palling around the waters of Tybee Island. He began his career competing in surf contests up and down the eastern seaboard. Skimboarding was initially something to do when the surf was flat. With the goal of daily water time, Keen’s focus quickly shifted from surfing to skimboarding. From puddles at low tide to heavy barreling shore breaks, this pursuit has taken him across the globe to Philippines, Australia, Japan, Mexico, Chile, and Brazil. In the fall of 2013, Keen rode his way to the United Skim Tour world title.

“Austin has a great vibe, a unique and radical approach to his sport, and a deep connection to water,” said Freewaters Co-founder Eli Marmar. “These are the values we look for in our ambassadors. I am confident we have only begun to see his evolution as a waterman.”
