Greetings from Bellingham! Here is DB Skimboards team rider Isaac Thomas on a mid winter (27 degree's Fahrenheit) day. Although it may be a bit too cold to hit the beach and skim, we have been logging many days at the hill (Snoqualmie Pass, Silverstar, Apex, Big White yada yada yada) and hopefully you have too (it's been a good snow year in the NW).
As for what we're doing, We've been busy. We've added a new engineer to our development team and are delving into some really exciting technologies. We don't want to spill the beans on the boards we've got going for 08 but you definitely might want to wait till the spring to get a new board!
On that note Our 07 stock is just about sold out! We have a few remaining medium streamlines up for grabs (with various foam colors) but other than that we are COMPLETELY OUT! Which is good, and we are stoked on all the riders who supported us last season.
ON THE HORIZON:
MARCH (well the end of the month anyway) :
- Launch dbskimboards.com 08 featuring all new media
- 08 Product line drops (get stoked)
- The DB skimboards Team Video "FOR THE MOMENT" teaser will be released: expect 540 shuvs, enormous gaps(combined with dangerous tricks), waves, Hippy jumping everything, Chambers, Dash, Canada, Sac, Utah, Cali, 4 wheelers, garbage cans, switch shiz etc. etc. Shot in 24p with some of the best cameras in the industry.
That's all we're going to tell you about for now. We'll try and post more often. Did we mention we have some really good artists doing really cool graphics this year? Well I'll save that for next time. We'll try and post some comp dates, movie premiere times and locations, and skim camp sessions next time as well.
Keep your fingers crossed for sunshine and low tides.
