Chambers Creek, only a few miles from the DB factory is a unique environment that facilitates skimboarding in an unexpected location. In University Place, WA adjacent to the south end of Tacoma, Chambers Creek sprawls into a sandy delta before draining into the Puget Sound. This area is a natural playground for skimboarders and an extremely popular summer hang out for youth in the greater Tacoma area. There is a highly talented group of riders that make this spot their home skim spot.
t was natural progression to introduce an event here in 2007 and has been a hit with the local skimboard community. In contrast to the Dash Point contest the Chambers Creek Throwdown has many more local skimboarders looking for some fun and friendly competition in a laid back atmosphere. Over a hundred spectators line the sand bars to watch the local talent put on a show and have a good time.
The DB Skimboards organizes and executes this annual event but it depends heavily on the support of the local community and sponsors that provide additional funding.
