Dash Point Pro/Am Tommorow, Forecast looks good

This is the 6th year we've had the Dash Point Pro/Am. The first year we had great weather but the following 5 years we had a mix of clouds rain and wind.

It looks like we are finally breaking the cycle with sunshine and mid 70's predicted for tomorrow in the Tacoma area.

Here is what Komo news has to say about the weather "The morning cloudcover should be gone by lunchtime on Friday, so expect lots of afternoon sunshine and high temperatures in the lower 70s (exactly normal for the last week of June). It'll be even warmer on Saturday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70s."


We have gotten word that a lot of good riders from Sacramento, BC, UT, and all over WA will be competing. Can't wait to see what goes down.

DB Urban Skim Jam 2009 (recap)

Tony Saddler on his flex proto

Emile Panerio with da monsta on a fully custom thomas pro

Isaac Thomas...lunch break

Blake Zimmerman getting tech on his streamplank

Isaac with his pro model Emile scoping out the view of the cascade mountain range

So the event was a bit under promoted... But we had a great time and the Pool turned out really sick. The location was ideal and provided enough space and level terrain for a fully shreddable set up.

The pool took about 2 hours to set up and the team got a good 4 hour sesh before we had to tear things down. The consistent conditions (and soft carpeting to fall upon) gave riders the opportunity throw down some RIDICULOUS tricks. 360 shuvs in and out, true big spins, 540 shuvs out, one foot combos....it was impressive.

With views of a historical landmark (stadium high school), commencement bay, the cascade mountains and some good friends there wasn't a better place to be on a 80 degree Saturday.

Check the photos...Mini Movie is in the works, possibly in reserve for DVD extras but we might drop it on youtube if the demand is there...
