etnies Skimboarder?

Mar 13 2009 / Friday

I just got this clip from our etnies Surf TM. And apparently we hook this guy up with some gear here and there. Now, I know what you're thinking... skimboarding? That's not surfing. Right... just watch how sick this guy is and then tell me he's not surfing.

This is etnies skimmer Paulo Prietto from Dana Point, Ca. and he's the best in the biz! Paulo is rad! And this clip is baffling!

  7. Nice feature. Paulo is a great skimmer and a gives back to the skim community in tons of ways.

  8. Nice to see Etnies dipping their toes into skimboarding. Its an awesome sport that is almost completely unsupported by the major "surf" brands. Get him up on the team page!

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  9. Wow it's pretty epic to see Etnies support skimboarding. Skimboarders really support companies that support their sport. You should hook up more events.

  20. barf!
    skimming needs to stay underground!
    it's too amazing of a sport to have anything
    to do with mainstream!
    and i am correct!
    keep it core- fuck off, etnies!

  27. So sick. Paulo kills it and definitely deserves respect from big companies like Etnies, he works his ass off for the sport of skimboarding.

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  28. It's sick to see Etnies branching out and support skimboarding. Let's hope there's more of this to come.. Congrats, Paulo!

  38. Paulo likes things that are hollow.
    Paulo pulls in to things that are hollow.
    sometimes Paulo doesnt come out of the hollow things.
    Paulo doesnt care.
    he just does it again and again.
    Nice moves Paulo!
    Thank you Etnies for hooking a great skimboarder and great person up.

  39. Awsome to see skimboarding getting more respect. Growing more and more each year. Paulo is a beast and keeps steppin up. Congrats paulo!

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  40. geaaaaaaa, paulo
    and that is not surfing.
    good to see one of the guys who puts the majority of his time into promoting skimboarding getting respect from big companies for doing it

    Posted: 7 years ago,

  42. Paulo
    Your friends, family & the skim community are so proud of you for being an ambassador to our sport.
    Skimming is a spectator sport.
    Back a guy like Paulo and you can't go wrong

  43. This is awesome, Paulo is an amazing person and a damn good skimmer too. Etnies would be doing something great for the sport and for a leading athlete by picking up paulo fully and the pay back would be the loyalty of a growing but tight knit skimboard community
    great work

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  44. I think I'll go buy some etnies today.

    Paulo is sick!!!

  45. i'm a surfer. skimboarding is so hard to get that good at. i've seen other companies get into skimming and they always get what they give right back, good community

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  46. way 2 go ethnies and congrats 2 paulo

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  47. Yeah!!! Paulo roxxx...

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  48. "sick" doesn't begin to explain this footage. if you've ever been kept under one of the waves he's riding you'd be "sick" to tell about it. I for one have and have healthy fear for the experience.. Ride on.

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  49. Paulo is the man and it's cool to see skimboarding evolve. Etnies should make a skim team.

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  50. hah!!!.. go etnies.. go paulo!! support skimboarding!!.. support nature!! i agree on Jon.. etnies should have a skim team.. good call Jon

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  51. pick up domke onyour team he's even better. then take a trip to the east coast nj needs some representin

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  52. Paulo's a real talent and a class act. Good to see you guys supporting him. One of my favorite athletes to photograph when I lived in OC.

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  53. skimming has been put on the back burner for tooo long! for it to be finally brought to the fore is a beautiful thing. etnies, nice work...paulo, even nicer!

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  54. Sick. Paulo is such a nice guy and a good person to represent your company. Im glad you guys picked him up, he wont disappoint you.

    Posted: 7 years ago,
  55. holy shit put him on the team page!

  67. Paulo's sick, a tremendous athlete. It's so cool to see a mainstream label do anything involved w/ skimboarding. The fact is, it's about time really, because skimboarding is inredibly physically-demanding sport. Generally, most good skimboarders also surf or skate, but most surfers and skaters aren't skimboarding. It's such an amazingly progressive sport, it's baffling that it has pretty much been ignored by mainstream brands and sponsorships.
    It's about time! Go paulo!

    Posted: 6 years ago,
  68. I think it's sick that etnies is beggining to get involved with skimboarding. skimboarding is a growing sport for sure. I definitely hope to see etnies sponsoring events and contest.

    Posted: 6 years ago,
  69. paulo is good
    skim is more flexible than any other boarding system
    shovits, airs, barrels, flatland, towing and plus

  70. so sick, way to go paulo and etnies, skimmers are very loyal to the companies that are trying to help the sport they love. i will definitly buy a pair of etnies for my next shoe!

    Posted: 6 years ago,
  71. Yeah paulo is good, but if youre looking for the best in the biz, you should keep youre eye on bill bryan. Or maybe the up and coming brad domke
