This summer I was part of the DB Skimboards European Tour that traveled through Europe for three weeks. The last stop of the tour was the Polish Skimboarding Open. Here are the photos and video I captured of the contest. You can also view all of this content and more in the new issue of Flatland Magazine by CLICKING HERE.
Witnessing the Polish Skimboarding Open in person this year was rad. We are working on a special issue about the Polish Skimboarding Open with well over 100 photos and a longer video edit. Flatland skimboarding at its best. In the mean, time here’s a quick video clip and a few photos to hold you over. We will be launching the St George Utah Skim Contest issue August 15th.

The first part of the DB Skimboards European Adventure was in the Netherlands. We were picked up at the airport and then skimmed for a few hours. Later that night we went to Amsterdam. I walked the streets of Amsterdam trailing behind the skim team to try and get as many photos of Amsterdam as possible. I had just my Nikon D300s and a 50mm lens on me. I would love to go back with more time to focus on photos with a full bag of lenses and time to set my camera up on a tripod. That being said the Netherlands is a great place I would like to visit again.
What an amazing two weeks I just experienced. DB Skimboards paid for six of us to travel to Europe and meetup with three European skimboarders and then travel and skimboard through the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Poland. We had a lot of great times some bad times when someone broke into our van and stole our passports and a few cameras. Luckily I kept my gear on me at all times. It was a true adventure. I am truly blessed to have traveled with such a great group of guys and to have experienced everything I did over the past two weeks. I have over 200 GB of photos and videos and look forward to editing all of it to show everyone the DB Skimboards European Adventure. Here are a few photos from the trip that I have posted on various skimboarding sites. I will have three mini magazines and probably about 5 videos from the trip overall. I have to thank DB Skimboards for such an amazing opportunity. All the photos and video are going to be released in the coming months in Flatland Magazine and SkimMagazine.com.
Here’s a couple photos we took while in Vegas for a bachelor party this weekend. Naturally, this is all we can show you. That marks the 5th time we have been to Vegas and we would like to make the trip back just for photography. If you wanna see more photos from the trip follow us on Instagram: @equalmotion.
