Exile in Cabo San Lucas

Exile team takes 1st, 2nd and 3rd

Austin 1st, Bullo 2nd, Sam 3rd

Just last weekend the Exile team was in Cabo scoring perfect waves and killing it in 2014 Cabo Clasico skimboard contest.  This event was stop #2 on the 2014 United Skim Tour.

We couldn’t be more stoked for our guys who earned first, second and third place at the event.  Austin Keen came up with the early season win putting him on good footing heading into Delaware (the next UST stop).  Exile rider and Cabo shredder Juan Carlos Nazario (“Bullo”) snagged second place along with some of the best waves of the contest.  Two time world champ Sam Stinnett landed in third place after a too close to call man-on-man semi final with Austin.  Sam and Austin are likely contenders for the 2014 UST title and we wish them both luck.  It should be a fun show to watch!

The Solmar sider was also working while we were down there and some of our guys were charging it every time is was on.  Here are some photos from both the contest and the free skimming sessions.  Enjoy!

Solmar, barrels just before dark are a tradition. The wind often lets up at the last minute. Not this night though, but that didnt bother Bullo.
