Jordan Takes 1st in Skim/Wakeskate/Bungee Slider Contest

Jordan Heurtaux from Le Harve France competed in a kite board contest last weekend. As you can see the event lacked adequate wind so they organizers got out a bungee + a winch and turned it into a slider comp!

Jordan took 1st place in the contest riding his DB Streamline Skimboard. Congratulations to Jordan, these rails are huge! Nice work!

If Jordan keeps shredding like this we may be adding him to the regional shreds very soon.

Check out more photos from the comp here

On a side note, if you've been riding your DB behind a boat, kite, or bungee let us know. It is rad to see how skimboards are such versatile boards and can be ridden across board sports diciplines.

Buy a DB Skimboard, Local Skimboard Dealers

We have added some great dealers this year, Check out the list and stop in to one of these retailers to check out the DB skimboards they've got in stock. These locations are the best places to purchase a skimboard because you can get in contact with the skimboards, compare sizes, and get valuable information from the great folks at each of these locations! If they don't have the board you want, they can always get it in for you. These guys have all the latest models along with DVD's, T-shirts, Catalogs, Stickers, and FREE posters!

Bryce and Richard Skim Blake's "secret spot"

Well we promised Blake we wouldn't give this spot up, but if you are skim around Dash Point with a little effort you can figure out where this secret bay is.

We took a couple hours off monday and got some much needed skim time. The sun was out and the temps were in the 70's. Found a sweet log on the shoreline so we made a quick log jib before the tide moved in.

On the way back we found blakes "secret rail stash" among the drift wood. Nice. We'll try those out next time.

Bryce and the shallow stream

Last Stop: White Rock, CANADA

Monday morning Emile and Isaac awoke to another Canadian day of sun and fun, as they headed down to East Beach White Rock for some a-frame and mystery (so cool were saving it for next years movie.."____") set ups. Both of the super shreds threw down consecutive first try show stoppers! The sesh ended, Isaac air dried his jammers, and back over the border they went....til' next time Canada, cheers eh.

Day #1: Vancouver, CANADA

Emile and Isaac had an awesome first day of their "mini" road trip. They skimmed Spanish for hours getting some sick footage for next years DB movie and chatted it up with the local groms who were stoked to get their hands on a free copy of "Nice Pop!". After shredding the beach they headed over to China Creek, Bonsor, and then White Rock skatepark where Emile got bah donk ah donk old school on a full pipe. Camped in White Rock for the night and now posting up at the local Starbucks. We'll be at East Beach White Rock today around noon...

Here we come Canada!

Taken just a few minutes ago, Emile and Isaac are now headed into Canada! Be at Spanish at noon.
