Canadian Open Skimboard Jam, White Rock BC

Last weekend the team made the trip up north to White Rock for the Canadian Open hosted by Tydle Mag. The event had great weather and a good turnout of riders from all over BC and Washington.

The format was laid back with sessions on each different feature judged separately by riders.

The crew had a good time chilling under the tent between sessions and riding with all the locals.

Blake rode hard all day taking 3rd in the final feature.

Richard focused on his specialty's, straight shuvs and hurricanes.

Isaac brought out his entire bag of tricks and was popping HUGE all day (not to mention 3-shuving / doing backside body varials on every thing in sight. Isaac was voted best overall rider of the day and also got best trick on the final feature.

Emile walked away with best trick on the Hellbound, but also showed some serious style with swivel 360 butters on the flat box.

High Fives for the team for making the Journey and riding so hard. More high fives to the Tydle Crew and Kyle Lynch for throwing a rad event. Check out the new tydle mag when it drops later this month.

Finnaly up! Here is our edit (the official edit) of the Dash Point Pro/Am that went down in June, 2009.

Isaac Thomas filmed most of it between heats....(thanks Isaac!) so if you were in Isaac's heats you might not have very many shots (also explains why he doesn't have many either!)

Kyle Took the camera for the later heats, it was his first time filming but he did a great job.

Inland Skim Sessions Competition

This weekend, DB Team riders Blake, Emile, Logan, Tony and Richard made the long trip up to Vancouver Island for the Inland Skim Sessions competition at Saratoga Beach. The features were a bit sketchy and the competition a bit unorganized but our team made the best of it.

Here is a picture of Richard, the crowd, and the beautiful scenery.

This is a picture of Emile making the best of what he had to work with.

Here is another picture of Emile doing a big spin off a sketchy jump. Yes, the right pipe is no longer attached but Emile still charged it.

The tide came in during the finals and a sand castle provided another obstacle to pop over. Here is Logan doing a shuv mute over the sand castle.

Here is a picture of Blake doing a shuv-it over what's left of the sand castle.

Emile ended up in first place with Logan a very close second and Blake got fourth place. It was good to see some local shredders on the island that gave us a run for our money.

Virgin River Classic, St. George Skimboarding Mega Post

So last Thursday DB Skimboards team riders Richard, Emile, Bryce and Blake set off for the 1500 mile drive to St. George Utah for the Virgin River Classic Skimboarding Competition. We took the long way cruising through the Wenatchee National Forest.

On the way we found a sweet spillway to skate that emptied into a river making an epic river jumping spot (see the pic of Blake one and a half).

Next stop was Coeur De'Alene Idaho where we met up with some skimmers and had a fun flatland/bungee session. After we lauched at warp speed up river (and eventually stretched the bungee so hard it broke!) we headed to the skate park for a fun session on the 5ft mini pipe.

We poached a campsite in Misoula Montana and slept on a tarp and dodged the rangers in the morning. Friday we drove all let's not talk about that. Friday night we met up with DB team rider Lexi Hutchings who let us crash at her place for the weekend. Thanks again Lexi! After peanutbutter and honey toast in the morning we trecked down to the river in the 100 + degree temperatures for the comp.

The comp was super fun. TJ for Adventure Plus, the Sandy Crack crew, and the VR Skimz crew built some sick features. The comp was well organized which made it less chaotic and a good time for everyone. At the end of the comp the top three spots were taken by DB riders:

1st Place: Logan Davidson
2nd Place: Emile Panerio
3rd Place: Blake Zimmerman

After the comp the crew took some of there winnings and gorged themselves on ribs and pizza (many a stomach ache resulted). After a quick rest the crew went back down to the river and seshed/filmed until the sun set. Some gnarly tricks went down including some nose blunts and other tricks/combos that I can't reveal until the next video comes out....

Sunday morning the crew filmed at a 3ft waterfall just out of town....also top secret stuff....but you might see a pic or two of this session in the next tydle mag.

Emile at the mini falls

Sunday and monday the crew drove home (17hrs) and stop and some super fun skate parks along the way. It was a good trip! Look out for the footage and keeper pictures in our upcoming video and the next tydle mag.

We are running low on certain models of boards so make sure to pick one up this week so you don't have to wait until we are back in stock...
