DB was founded in 2003 by Richard Docter, Bryce Hermansen, and Tim Mackey. Originally manufacturing foam top longboards and flatland skimboards the business quickly grew out of the garage and moved to a 2000 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 6000 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.
