The skimming season has started to wind down as the weather quickly has changed. We're starting to make plans for next year with lots of new ideas, so we'll have to see what exactly we come up with. In the mean time, check out the recent issue of skimboarder magazine featuring an article on the Sacremento Skimfest, including a couple of sweet pics as you see below.

Skimboarding is a very technical sport, and requires a very technical short. That is why the new DB Boardshorts are light weight, quick drying, and feature both a neoprene fly, and inner-mesh boxer so your unmentionables don't get sandburn during long sesh's. Truly comfy, and super clean looking, these are a must. Available in sizes 30, 32, 34, and 36. Very limited quantities, available through the DBS store eventually, or better yet email us at to get your pair before they run out. $40, Cash check, or paypal.

DBS Big Weekend (post)

The team had a big weekend. Friday we started the adventure off wake skimming/surfing with greg from Northwest Riders ( ) on lake Washington. The sun managed to come out by the afternoon and we snuck in some runs before the afternoon glass dissappeared. The team spent the rest of the day testing the new longboards on the smooth asphalt of Bellingham. Saturday the team participated in the Inversion Snow-n-Skate skim demo in Birch Bay, WA. The demo was a bit chilly but everyone had a good time, and some gnarly tricks went down. Sunday was our first annual DB Chambers Creek Throwdown which was a huge success. Although it wasn't 80 degrees, the local chambers creek riders really stepped up at the comp showing off what chambers has to offer. The results are as follows:

Open Men:

1st: Issac Thomas
2nd: Bryce Hermansen/Mike Stelz
3rd: Jesse Quiocho
4th: Tony Sadler

Competition Weather Forecast

We were a bit worried for the comp but every day the forecast has gotten better and better! Looks like you won't need your winter jacket this year with temps reaching 70 and sun. It's always sunny at dash point so get ready for some fun. We've been building some really quality rails and jumps for the contest and I might be able to give a preview in a few days. We are looking forward to it, hope to see you there.

Protolights at Dash Point

The team has been seshing our wood skimboards a ton this season so we felt that it was time to give the new protolight skimboards a proper sesh. everyone adapted quickly to the ultralight feel of the boards and were surprised at how well they spun and popped compared to the 06 models. Both Bryce and Spencer landed multiple 540 shuv's, and spencer landed this shuv indy in the shallows at dash.

PS: We are now sold out of 06 PROTOlights, Sorry but the sale is over! Don't worry though we've got the 07's in stock.
