Coast Longboarding Danger Bay Poster Archive
Registration is open and Danger Bay is getting closer so I figured What the hell, may as well do a little follow up to an article we posted a few weeks back on Striker’s Memories. With Striker hyping up the event in a new video, I thought this time I would stock pile all the Danger Bay posters to show what’s scowered the BC Coast for the past 15 years. Before Strike was on youtube, twitter, facebook and instagram, countless volunteers from Coast Longboarding postured (actually printed and hung up physical posters – wow!) around the surrounding area. To be on the poster is a great honor for riders. Or atleast, that’s the way I see it.
DB isn’t the best course in the world, but it’s one that tons of riders want a podium at because of it’s roots and the challenge to actually win it against a pack of Coasties who want it just as bad as any pro. I choose Danger Bay 7 as my favorite poster but it wasn’t easy. Nathan Lang almost won Danger Bay 5 then came back the next year and took DB6. In this poster, he is in 1st on Carnage Corner the final heat (DB7 poster) with legendary riders Scoot Smith and Kyle Martin gunning for his spot. It’s a moment that OG Coasters will not forget. Like many heats, everyone went hot into Carnage Corner. Unfortunately over Nate’s incredible racing career he got crashed out one too many times and threw in the racing towel, in what I feel was his prime. Nate’s a legend, he no longer races but his name will live on in Coast history thanks to the stories and the DB posters.
