The DB Lunchtray!

DB Lunchtray

DB Lunchtray

When we look at the DB Lunchtray we see progression! We see a platform that truly gives you, the rider, unlimited potential for freeriding! Everything about the board is really pretty fantastic! There is a ton of continuous rocker running from tip to tip, it’s like a teeter-totter! However, unlike most boards with rocker, the Lunchtray has a nice deep and precise flushmounting system that slightly lowers the ride height, but more importantly, allows the degree of your trucks to remain unaffected! Not only is it flushmounted, it is flushmounted AND has optional wheelbases so you can really dial this board into your personal style!

The DB Lunchtray has some mean concave. Above the wheel wells there are hefty flared up areas of 3D concave that will keep your feet locked in no matter how fast you go or how big you slide. Looking at the Lunchtray you will probably notice that there are kicktails but without riding the board you can’t tell how functional they actually are. Believe us, with all of the rocker that this board has, those kicktails are wild and will pop your board up like crazy!

DB Longboards is coming out with some really rad stuff that is going to shape the way for boards of the future. The Lunchtray is just one installment of all their awesome plans to come! If you thought the invention of the wheel was revolutionary… wait til you get your feet on the DB Lunchtray!

The New Orangatang Moronga Longboard Wheel!

Orangatang Moronga

Orangatang Moronga

Guys and girls we are proud to present you with Orangatang’s newest wheel… The Orantatang Moronga! It is a center set freeriding dream-wheel! It has a 35mm contact patch and sits at 72.5mm tall. Like all of Orangatang’s other freeride inspired wheels, the Moronga comes with a stone-ground contact patch and beveled edges so right out of the package they are ready to shred! Their thin profile makes them very easy to kick out into slides. Usually this quality leads to unpredictable wheels that tend to slip out a little too easy but with the Moronga’s center set hub and Orangatang’s patented Euphorethane urethane compound these wheels are surprisingly delightful when getting sideways. Not to mention, since they are center set, you can flip them over as they start to cone, doubling the life of your wheels!

We got to check them out quite a while ago, in their prototype phases and were instantly in love. One of the things that we enjoy the most in regards to the Orangatang Moronga is how light they are. They are really fun on boards like the Tan Tien and Kanthaka. Basically anything with a kicktail, where you can do freestyle tricks, will pair up great with these bad boys. Its never fun to have a heavy wheel weighing your board down! AND once these guys wear down you can throw them on your mini-cruisers and they are extremely fun!

All around we are pretty much in love with these wonderful lumps of urethane and joy. Freeriders rejoice! Your wheel hath cometh! 

Pam Diaz: Welcome to the Pro Team

Well it is official folks; we put Pammy on our pro team! She has been shredding so hard over the past couple years and deserves this. Thank you to all her sponsors.  Abec 11, Caliber Trucks, Comet Skateboards; you guys are helping her live out her dream! Congrats Pam Díaz, you’re doing it!

Check out this write up on some of the Longboard Girls Crew at the first ever Maryhill She-ride! It is on the Huffington Post! Girls are making it big!

So Pete and Jeffrey that work here get into all sorts of shenanigans! Sometimes it is on a board, sometimes it is off a board! Their footy got compiled together and we made this fun little edit of them goofing off! In this edit they do some bombing and free riding on Mt. Tabor here in Portland, Oregon as well as get some park skating in at the Brooklyn Street DIY skate park!

Kyle Martin FSU Hawgs by Landyachtz: Review

Check out our ambassadors Richard Topete and Marcus Dalton having some fun on the hills in this new video! They are riding the Kyle Martin FSU Hawgs from Landyachtz and boy are they fun! They are a Center Set 70mm wheel with a huge core for long, smooth, buttery slides. They are 80a and come in either a pre-ground, ready to slide, super gnarly freeride wheel OR a high-gloss super grippy downhill version. Landyachtz did a good job on this one and we wanted everyone to see how much fun they can be!

This is our experience out at maryhill… just a little part though!

Team rider Ishtar Backlund kicking it with Ambassadors Eric Hoang and Richard Topete

So Maryhill has come around again! This year got very very rowdy and very out of control. I am glad we got to be a part of it. Check out some of the photos from the event. We ran around, camera-happy, and got a bunch of great shots for you to enjoy!

Team Rider Amanda Powell hanging out with shop employee/gangster Jesse Stuart

We were slanging all sorts of goodies up there. If you weren’t there to get in on our awesome deals and mayhem then you were missing out! Abec 11′s and Landyachtz Biggie Hawgs were flying off the shelves!

Patrick Switzer getting crazy-faced! Love this dude.

Patrick Switzer went on to win the event and it was a huge win for Rayne longboards as well. Patrick was on a sweet prototype slalom deck and absolutely killed it!

The homie James Kelly… you may know him as the American Dream!

Daddies riders! The beautiful Marisa Nunez and Alex “The Fiercest” Tongue!

Bricin “Striker” Lyons! … And Rebekka Gemperle… what a babe!

Camping like a boss!

Camping out in a good location is KEY if you want to avoid some of the skater’s campsite mayhem… We avoided it until the final night in the maryhill state park! it was great!

Camping in the makeshift tent… awesome!

Tad Drysdale!

Loaded and Orangatang’s Kyle Chin!

This is the man that is responsible for quite a bit of the Loaded and Orangatang videos and product that you all love!  Kyle CHIN!

Douglas Dalua!!! Love this dude too… such a gnarly rider!

Douglas Dalua is loved by everyone! He set a new track record on his rayne and abec 11 wheels! He has a new wheel sponsor but he was still on abec 11′s!

Alex Tongue Butt-Boarding for King of the Hill!

It started raining pretty heavily during the King Of The Hill race between the top 6 qualifiers. Everyone was butt-boarding except for James Kelly who decided to stand up after he started. James ended up winning king of the hill for his second year in a row! Go James! AMERICAN DREAM!

Jesse Stuart and Pete Benda running the show.

Alexa got us a lot of attention, everyone had a crush on her!

My buddy Daniel Figueroa all the way up from Mexico! Good to see him again this year!

Zak belted it out for the national anthem. Who knew that the dude who created Venom wheels and bushings, and who also rides for madrid would be killing the national anthem. I’ve seen him sing it before though haha… good work Zak!

Mischo Erban, Bricin Striker Lyons, and Patrick Switzer singing the canadian national anthem for Canada Day… whatever that is haha.

Alex Tongue had the 3rd fastest qualifying time!

Those comet leg patches are sick… but Byron was definitely riding a Rayne Killswitch… I think his board was out of commission. I saw him carrying around his beloved chopped Comet Takeover.

Freshly Paved… Fresh and Paving the way!

This level of shredding is pretty awesome. I feel like these dudes got their huge slides on lock very early and then decided to do stuff they hadn’t seen anyone do before. I am sure they are influenced by some bigger names out there but I feel like these guys are pretty original. Speaking of original I am pretty sure I saw the same original longboards prototypes in this video that I saw out at maryhill. And by prototypes I mean boards that will be coming out later this year or next year. Everything looked pretty solid! It really seems as if original is stepping their game up to stay current in the world of downhill and freeride, plus they got some shredders on board to back it up!

Pam Diaz [GRNTM]

Pam Diaz – Making the come up.

Word on the street is that DBS Ambassador team rider, Pam Diaz, who we absolutely love, is now officially on Abec 11′s [GRNTM] or… “Green Team” if you aren’t in the know. I know it is easily confused with the ever so often used “Great Rustic Northern Table Moose,” but in Abec 11′s case it just stands for Green Team. We don’t know all the details yet but we will sure keep you posted so keep on coming back for more news! This year is treating Pam so well and we couldn’t be more proud of her! Well we spilled the beans, lets see what Abec 11 has in store for her!!! Mwuaaahahahahaha!
