Hannah Teter and Her Very Sweet Cheeks

We here at nemo love helping others and we love snowboarding…so naturally we love the one and only Hannah Teter. A gold metalist and olympic snowboarder, life time shredder and younger sister to two amazing snowboarders and one sweet talkin’ rep. She really stands out as one amazing young woman.

She has started numerous foundations to raise money for those in need including selling maple syrup and other products online at Hannah’s Gold to provide water to a village in Kenya, sold underwear online to support Doctors Without Borders, and had a Ben & Jerry’s flavor named after her, with proceeds going to charity. She’s raised over $250,000 for Kirindon and at least 40% of all net proceeds from the sale of her Sweet Cheeks panties line is given to charity partner Children International to help feed and nourish children living in extreme poverty.

With a little bit of help from her big bro and friends Hannah has officially launched the Sweet Cheeks Website!! She is joined in the cause by her close friend and fellow shredder Gabi Viteri! With more lovely ladies of the action world sure to be joining the young Miss Teter’s panties with a purpose the gallery is sure to be stuffed with more beautiful babes with big hearts!

BMX in the Beijing Olympics – Mark Lewman on the spot for Nemo


NIKE 6.0 Lightning Bolts aka NEMO in China

In preparation for the Olympics in China, Nike 6.0 hosted the “Lightning Bolts” BMX Exhibition in Beijing. The event brought BMXing’s legends out to play. 6.0 riders put on a live demo and legends customized number plates for the art show. 

Nemo’s very own Mark Lewman, an OG of BMX’s Freestylin Magazine, was one of the brains behind the event. He has been hard at work creating an anniversary edition of Freestylin (that will have a very special limited release) and designing his very own number plate. YEAH Lew!

Documenting Olympic Destruction

French photographer Ambroise Tezenas‘ work Beijing: Theatre of the People is documenting the construction and destruction of Beijing’s ancient narrow alleyways, collective housing and ground level villages. China’s leap into global economics coupled with the 2008 Olympics is accelerating the disappearance of Beijing’s village past. Tezenas’ images capture a haunting vision of China’s past. The scenes are empty, yet suggestive of a presence, though not necessarily a living one.
