Tydle Magazine- Volume 3 online

This is legit. After much anticipation the Tydle crew has blown us away again. 250+ pages dedicated to what we all live and love, flatland skimboarding. If you haven't seen or heard of this online magazine, it is worth sitting down and flipping the pages on the screen for, and if you know about tydle, you are probably already on your way over there.

Be ready for many shots of the DB team in action, such as this shot of Richard at Chambers.
The '09 competition recap is a great for staying in the loop and seeing whats what for events.
A ton of great articles are jam packed, including this one about the DB team hitting up Utah.

Be sure to tell your friends to check out the magazine and shoot (Kyle Lynch) an email letting him know how sick this mag is.

Whidbey Island Skimboarding, Double Bluff Film Sesh

DB Skimboards Team riders Richard Docter, Bryce Hermansen, Tim Mackey, Isaac Thomas, Emile Panerio, and Blake Zimmerman headed out to whidbey island for a two day film sesh last Thursday and Friday.

Although the weather was a bit on the chilly side (60 degree's) the team had two very productive days of filming.

Double Bluff beach has a ton of drift wood/random stuff lying around that find their way into the tide pools and make for some really sick jibs/slashable objects.

Bryce brought his truck with an old up flat that we sawed the legs off (in the parking lot) and turned into a mellow ollie on. It was a pretty sick feature, some sick tricks went down and some equally gnarly bails.

Blake got really tech on his favorite feature (flat box....). He charged all weekend despite injuries/body slams into pvc, sand, and cement (at the skate park).

At the end of the session we set up a 4ft (maybe 5ft?) log jam. Expect to see some sick shots from this film sesh in our next video...yet to be named...but coming along very nicely.

Thanks to all the Whidbey Island locals for the hospitality and help. Hope to be back to Double Bluff soon.

Flat rate shipping until the end of the month! $10 anywhere in the USA, $20 anywhere in Canada. Get your board today!

Chambers Creek Throwdown 2009, Skim Comp at da Creek

Ollie on's bro! That's right, this comp is basically the opposite of the Dash Pro/Am. The deeper conditions at chambers make for great opportunities for ollie-on features, slant walls, trash cans, and pipes of every size and length.

$25 get's you entry into the contest, and a T-shirt....maybe even a hot dog....BBQ maybe?

Anyway, this comp is always a ton of fun, we have some great sponsors who are all kicking down a ton of sweet gear, skate decks, skimboards, hoodies, tee's, wheels, bearings, hats, etc. etc. etc.

Registration at 11am, comp starts at noon. AUG 15th 2009

Addison Foote, Home-made skim park

DB team rider Addison Foote built his own skim park out in Hatch Utah. The project took him 3-weekends to complete but by the looks of it the effort was well worth it. Nice Job Addison!
