A bit of Portuguese summer! news update!

Well guys this summer as been great in fingerboard activity.

This August the Loma Family (Loz, Massera, Andre Coral, Gil, Bruno David & Gonçalo (didnt go)) got together for another great fingerboard session where we add lots of fun and fingerboarded all day long.
No publicity, no prizes, no oficializations just true friendship & love for fingerboard.

Here are some photos of this memorable day.
For reference: Loz (white), Massera ( blue), Andre Coral (black), Gil ( Red with bandana), Bruno David (red with watch)

Why being inside when u can be outside!?


In other news...

Also in August, Bruno David turned the old forum into an even better tool for us to meet each other and extend our love of fingerboarding.


The biggest diferences are:

The Design which is much cleaner and easy to use.
New funtions such as the Gallery, Download Area where videos will be made available for download. Calendar, Individual profiles improved greatly.

Alert system - one of my favourite features, on a scale of 0% to 100% users will get warnings every time they cross the line. Once reached 100% your banned temporarely or not. i found this system quite fair.
Also the chat area got improved.

Overall, Bruno gave us a very nice surprise and made a lot for the portuguse scene to continue to flourish with his work.

We owe him everything that portuguese fingerboard is today.


The last oficial jam of the summer will take place next saturday, on the 13th of Sept. in one of the best sk8 parks of the country.
It will be the Lourinha Jam!
Expected to be the best so far.
I´ll make sure to keep you all posted.
