New Team Ambassador – Marcus Dalton

Marcus Dalton - Switch Heelslide Check

We here at Daddies Board Shop have acquired a new shredder. He is a young fellow from  here in the Pacific Northwest, Marcus Dalton! He has a super unique style, especially to this area, very flowy and relaxed… we like that!

Marcus was rocking a fun a little setup. He is on a sector 9 downhill division “Lacey.” He was riding a short wheelbase on it and I saw him doing manuals and mini ollie’s all day on it. He has 50 degree caliber baseplates with randal hangers and 78a center set sector 9 race formula wheels. 

Marcus was toeside checking mad driveways!

Hands down the best part about skating with Marcus was that he was totally down to adventure and go hit up crazy random spots. I love that. I grew up street skating so I was always on a quest with my friends to find new spots. Most of the time when I shoot longboarding we hit up a hill and pretty much stay there the entire time. Marcus was all about exploring and finding new spots, regardless of how good the pavement was. I want to see more of this in longboarding for sure. There are too many photo shoots and video shoots in super fancy rich neighborhoods. I feel like places like that are good for practicing and learning. It is kind of like how skateparks work, good for learning tricks and dialing them in… but you wouldn’t really film a video part there. Street just looks way more interesting and creative! It works the same with longboarding, the weird alleyways and jenky spots look way sicker!

Fatty crack before the driveway aint no thang!

This spot was pretty funny. We had finished up skating a different spot and we went searching for something new. There was a huge group of people walking down here in a tour or something so we thought we would give it a look-see. After shredding for about 5 minutes we got stopped by a lady who 1.) wanted to know what we were doing and 2.) asked us not to publicize the spot. I just told her we wouldn’t mention any street names… but truthfully… what skaters look at street names when they are out skating? I would have no idea how to get back here!

Marcus Crossing! I told you we went adventuring...

So there you have it folks, Marcus is a new dude that you will be seeing more and more of. We are super stoked that he is part of the team and we can’t wait to work with him more and more!
