The Standard and Flex Proto come 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.
A definitive advantage of a DB Skimboard is our trademark Micro Concave. We 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.
It's taken years to find the perfect rocker profile for our standard boards. We dialed in and perfected this profile to find the perfect mix of amplitude and curvature. Our rocker enables maximum pop without sacraficing 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. Our boards are pressed using a proprietary technique that ensure longlasting shape accurate laminations. Ask around, our boards hold their rocker and concave almost indefinately!
Standard skimboards are constructed with a stiff 5-ply hard rock maple core.
Flex skimboards are constructed with a lighter, 3-ply hard rock maple core.
We laminate using a completly water tight bonding agent and encase the core with HPL topsheet and base. HPL is the best sliding surface we'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 our signature CNC machines 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.
