The DB Standard Proto Skimboard is one of the most popular boards in flatland skimboarding. This board excels in almost any conditions. The Protos bi-directional shape reduces swing weight at the tip and tail of your board making it easier to pop. Its sidecuts keep the board tracking straight in the water and its wide waist creates an extremely stable ride. This board can do everything from the most technical flatland tricks to the gnarliest PVC rails and boxes. A team favorite for everything form technical tricks to long rides and bank slides.
The Standard Proto comes in two sizes, Medium (41.4"x19.63") and Large (43.4"x20.5"). The medium size is a better board for technical maneuvers while the large is better for bigger riders and deeper conditions.
DB manufactures using only the best sustainable harvested hardwoods to ensure a long lasting rocker, great ding resistance, and everlasting pop. 100% of the scrap that is produced is re-purposed into down stream products. In addition to the re-purposing program DB strives to use only Low VOC and water based chemicals to keep the earth and their employee’s happy and healthy.
- Concave - A definitive advantage of a DB Skimboard is the trademark Micro Concave. DB Skimboards employ a tiny side to side concave which creates a bowl effect over the surface of the board. This concave allows the rider a catch free ride and added confidence in spins and shuvs.
- Rocker - It's taken years to find the perfect rocker profile for DB's standard boards. They dialed in and perfected this profile to find the perfect mix of amplitude and curvature. The rocker enables maximum pop without sacrificing speed over the water or making the board difficult to throw.
- 3D Rocker & Precision Lamination - The combination of Micro Concave + Continuous Rocker = 3D Rocker. The bowl'd deck creates the perfect platform for technical tricks, long rides, and easy sliding. DB boards are pressed using a proprietary technique that ensure long lasting shape accurate laminations. Ask around, these boards hold their rocker and concave almost indefinitely!
- Construction - Standard skimboards are constructed with a stiff 5-ply hard rock maple core. DB Skimboards laminates using a completely water tight bonding agent and encase the core with HPL topsheet and base. HPL is the best sliding surface they've found. It slides great over sand, PVC rails and boxes, logs, shells, cement, and just about anything you can think of! The top of the board has a signature CNC machined EVA diamond foam. This is the perfect surface for your feet. EVA foam provides great traction and cushioning and is tough enough to survive the wear and tear from long sessions, UV, and saltwater.
- Proudly Made in the USA - DB Skimboards have been making their skimboards just South of Seattle, WA since 2003. Their company is rider owned and operated and dedicated to making the best boards in the world.
