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!
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!
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!
Zach Boston getting sideways in the boonies! Rich people boonies.
On sunday I went out with some of our new Daddies Ambassadors. They took me to a few spots I had never been to and it was actually pretty sick. Pretty gnarly though. The hills we hit up were steep, fast, and buttery smooth.

Richard was killing it! Showed up a little late and just came in on fire.

Then there was a kitty session with one of the nicest kitties ever.
The Landyachtz EH TEAM and DADDIES BOARD SHOP rider Katie Neilson is on the road doing an East Coast Tour of college campus’s between New York and Florida, making stops everywhere including Chapel Hill, North Carolina where there were sightings of little rippers in Orange all day. In a contest where style is key, its no suprise that the daddies rider went home with best trick for a double grabbed stalefish with an early grab out at the end.
Written by the goddess Skatie Katie herself! Thanks Ms. Neilson!
Straight up getting buck on some slides!
Fancy slide Jimmy Jam! These dudes look good, but not as good at DBS Team rider Katie Neilson! OWWWWW!
Thanks for the photos Katie!
Curly Headed Quote of the Day: “I just wish I could put a piece of pizza on someones package.”
Im not sure if many people know but we have been working on an ambassador program to help spread the stoke. We are trying to hook up up and coming riders from all over the place. Here is one of our homies, Juan Mercado doing his thang, getting all sorts of fun stuff in the mix! Check him out in this fun little edit.
You should probably be watching this cause Levi Green straight up SHREDS. He is officially on Abec 11‘s Green Team now. He is also getting the hook up from Rayne Longboards and you can see him rocking the RayneVandal . I would say that Levi is straight hooked up. He is also rocking Abec 11Biltin bearings and Riptide bushings, which have been making quite a name for themselves lately. Gotta give those a look see.
