May in Utah can be a confusing time of year for outdoor sport lovers. We spent the entire winter not questioning what the activity of the day would be, clearly we’d be skiing.

The international skimboarding community is celebrating after Cabo San Lucas skimboarders won a years-long struggle with a resort to gain public access to Solmar beach. Located at the tip of Mexico’s baja peninsula where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, Solmar is regarded as one of the best skimboarding waves in the world, with a powerful shorebreak that has been a breeding ground for top talent.

Women’s freeride mountain biking has some serious momentum right now, and that couldn’t be more clear after watching a train of nine ladies getting some serious air time at the first annual Thunderstruck event this weekend at Thunder Mountain Bike Park in Massachusetts. Over the past few years, women’s freeride has been making big strides thanks to progression-focused events like RedBull Formation and Hannah Bergemann’s Hangtime Jump Jam in Bellingham.
