DB Skimboards include
DB Standard Skimboards
DB standard Skimboards feature a continuous 3D rocker and micro concave for excellent speed and control over water.
The boards are made from 5-ply hard rock maple laminated and sandwiched between HPL top sheet for maximum waterproofness.
The surface is coated with EVA diamond foam for excellent grip. The board does not require wax.
The Standard Streamline is a great all-rounder with a round nose and tail. Easy to skim with and perfect for turning and jumps.
Available in medium, 40.6″ and large 43.5″ lengths. The medium board is better for turns and tricks, while the larger board is better suited to bigger riders and deeper water.
The standard proto-board is a bi-directional shape to lower swing weight at the tip and tail, ensuring easier popping.
The board rides incredibly straight, keeping the rider stable throughout. Also suitable for various Skimboard tricks.
Available in medium 41.4″ and large 43.4″
DB Flex Skimboards
DB Flex Skimboards feature the same continuous rocker and micro concave with HPL top sheets, bases and diamond-cut EVA grip.
