Skimboard Champ FLIPS OUT: I'm a Real Estate Agent!

6/2/2011 1:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They call it "pro" skimboarding ... but 3-time world champ Paulo Prietto tells TMZ, he had to take up REAL ESTATE just to pay the bills -- and he STILL pulled some insane moves on the beach yesterday.

Wow, skimboards today look a lot different than the one I made out of plywood in my 8th grade wood-shop class. Fun sport, but I still remember the raspberries on my butt from falling over and over.

PRO? What a Joke. Pro means thats what you do for a living. Its a hobby. Skim boarders are kooks who cant surf and certainly there is not one "real" pro on planet earth. Until you can make a full time living from it, its a hobby. I was a professional surfer back in the 80's and I didnt dare call myself a pro, even though I had entered professioanl events, until that paycheck came in the mail. All others are Amature or Hobby people. I just cant stop laughing that some dork skimboarder would call himself a pro hahahaha

I'm thinking about dressing and impersonating Allah and or Mohammed, occasionally walking the streets of Hollywood, I wonder how I would be welcomed...?
Would I get the same "warm welcome" and " tolerance" that we all speak so much about?

On any provided sunny day along the west coast you are probably to see the spectacle of skimboarding. Not really properly regarded, the sport is typically mistaken as surfing or even careless taking part in. In actuality, skimboarders are masters of stability and precision and the legitimacy of this activity has gained simply because it's conception. http://www.skimboardworld.com/Advanced-Skimboards-c1_4.html
