About DB Skimboards
What’s DB stand for? DB boards bear the name of their original birth place, Dash Point, Washington. Our first boards were fondly referred to as “Dashboards”, the name stuck and has come represent our hand made boards crafted in the Northwest. DB was founded in 2003 by Richard Docter, Bryce Hermansen, and Tim Mackey. Originally manufacturing flatland skimboards and longboard skateboards the business quickly grew out of the garage and moved to a 2,000 sq ft barn. Working nights and weekends the guys pushed through college and upon graduating pursued their passion full time. In 2010 the guys out grew the barn and moved to their current 4,000 sq ft shop just South of Seattle, WA.
Inspired by the Northwest’s, beaches, concrete, and snow, the guys continue to chase their founding ideal; pursuing adventure and riding the best boards possible. You’ll find our founders and employee’s riding our product on the hills, waves, beaches, and mountains all over the Northwest.
