Isaac and Richard Shred Parksville, BlueBack Skim Jam

Isaac Thomas and Richard Docter took a quick trip over to Vancouver Island to ride in the Blueback Island Style Skim Jam. The boys took the Tsawwassen ferry over to the island early Friday morning. The tide was up upon arrival so the guys skated the local skate parks in Parksville and Nanaimo. Although the forecast looked bleak for the event, Saturday morning turned out sunny and calm, perfect conditions for the event. The local Vancouver Island skimmers brought a high level of energy and some big tricks to the event. Richard and Isaac were stoked on the level of progression on the island and the professional coordination of the event. Isaac took home some great prizes and two "best trick" titles. The event was a lot of fun. Big thanks to the Blueback crew and local skimmers for putting on an awesome event!

Here are a few photo's we shot at the event. Check out www.nwstour.com for more photo's later this week.

Double Bluff “SKIMusicFEST,” Saturday

Come out to Double Bluff Park on Whidbey Island this weekend for "SKIMusicFest." The event will feature a laid back competition and trophies made of locally blown glass. There will be live music and a BBQ. Double Bluff is a great beach and riders from DB, JACKD, and locals from all over WA should be in attendance. Make sure to carpool to the event if possible, or take the shuttle from Bayview park since parking is limited.

The event starts at 10am so if you are planning on coming make sure to check the ferry times (or drive times if you are taking the bridge) to make it there on time. The tide is pretty early so don't be late!
