The 4th annual Chambers Creek Throwdown went "down" last weekend. The event was greeted with overcast sky's in the morning which quickly burnt off to sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 70's. Riders from Washington, Vacouver Island, BC, Kelowna, France, and Utah made it out to sesh a variety of set ups in the ankle deep fresh water at Chambers Creek.
The 45 Competitors threw down some truly inspiring tricks with 540 shuvs onto boxes, bigspins in and out, 3-shuvs to one foot slides and much much more. The competitors made it extremely difficult for the judges to determine who to crown as winner but eventually they narrowed it down to the following results:
1st: Isaac Thomas
2nd: Logan Davidson
3rd: Andrew Cook
1st: Bryce Johnston
2nd: Arthur Murray
3rd: Trevor Hardwick
4th: Greg Christie
5th: Cedar Coba

More photo's up soon! Make sure to check the DB Facebook Page for more photo's going up this week.
We had Richard Docter shooting the entire comp (except for the best trick section which he participated in, and missed a lot of good shots!), so expect a nice video of the event in a few weeks time. Thanks to all the volunteers, competitors and spectators for coming out and making the event great. Check out full photo coverage courtesy of Matt McDonald HERE.
If you couldn't make it make sure to keep posted to www.dbskimboards.com and www.nwstour.com for upcoming comps and demo's. The next event is on Vancouver Island at Saratoga Beach July 24th, followed by the Double Bluff Comp on Whidbey Island on August 7th, and then the Puget Sound Throwdown Aug 14th on Jetty Island. There are a lot of skim events this summer, make sure to get out to one (or all) of them and show your support!
