Zap Skimboards Presents: Gerardo Valencia – I Love To Skim

We are more then happy to release this rad video of team rider Gerardo Valencia. Gerardo has been continuing to amaze us, charging heavy skim and hucking massive airs. With just a few years of skimboarding under his belt we can only image what Gerardo has in store for us in the future.

Part 1 of the video takes place at Playa Del Coco, a fun skim beach just south of Melaque. The waves were not the best this day but the water and landscapes were amazing. This beach typically has a fun sider but unfortunately it was not working this day.

Intermission /Lifestyle clips are from Gerardo’s hometown, Barra De Navidad. This vibrant yet calm town is a hidden paradise in Mexico.

Part 2 skim waves are from the famous Mainland Mexico skim beach, Melaque. This beach is typically has heavy straight wave shore break with steep slope to slide into them. You could not ask for much more from these small towns in Mexico.
