KAMLOOPS, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, April 11, 2023 -- Armoured Labs Protection, a leading manufacturer of eco-friendly protective ceramic coatings for board sports, has announced their supply partnership to DB Skimboards, a leading manufacturer of high-performance skimboards, to bring DB Skimboards Monster Spray to market.

Staying on the path of giving consumers the best flatland skimboards in the world, DB Skimboards Monster Spray was created – comprising an Armoured Labs ceramic coating – protecting and enhancing the surfaces of skimboards. For the first time, skimboards can have an extra layer of protection.

Mr Kanda James, Managing Director of Armoured Labs said “We’re ecstatic to be working with one of the world’s leading manufacturers in skimboards, and especially DB Skimboards who are known for their high-quality craftsmanship.” He added, “The partnership between DB Skimboards and Armoured Labs feels like a natural fit as each of our companies is dedicated to providing board riders with the best products to further enhance performance and board longevity.”

Mr Tim Mackey, Co-Founder of DB Skimboards said “We're stoked to be working with Armoured Labs Protection to bring our customers the ultimate protection for their boards. Making a good skimboard is more difficult than you might think. Pressing precise rockers and concaves is an art that took us the better part of a decade to truly perfect. We manufacture using only the best domestically produced hardwoods to ensure a long-lasting rocker, great ding resistance, and everlasting pop.” He added, “So for us when we had the opportunity to introduce Monster Spray as a way to give consumers further protection and enhancing properties for their skimboards, we immediately jumped at it.”

DB Skimboards was founded in 2003 by Richard Docter, Bryce Hermansen, Tim Mackey, and Isaac Thomas. Originally manufacturing flatland skimboards and longboard skateboards the business quickly grew out of the garage and moved to a 2,000 sq ft barn. Working nights and weekends the guys pushed through college and upon graduating pursued their passion full-time. In 2010 the guys outgrew the barn and moved to their current 4,000 sq ft shop just south of Seattle, WA where they manufacture from raw materials to finished one-of-a-kind boards using unique molds and materials.
