DC SOUTH EAST ASIA TOUR 2013
07 August 2013, Jakarta – DC Shoes announced today the highly anticipated 2013 South East Asia Tour. The tour spanning across three different countries, will bring DC’s world-renowned skate team to Philippines, Singapore, and Indonesia. On the tour, South East Asia skate fans will have the chance to get an up close and personal DC skateboarding experience through instore signings and skateboarding demonstrations. One highlight of this year’s tour is the inclusion of DC’s Nyjah Huston, who recently won ESPN’s Action Sports Athlete Of The Year award. Also joining Nyjah will be Wes Kremer, Matt Miller, Cyril Jackson, Tommy Fynn and Jake Hayes.
This tour will have a unique element in each city for the DC team. In Manila, Philippines, a custom made park has been built inside South East Asia’s largest shopping mall, the SM Mall of Asia. In Singapore, the DC team will be doing a demo at Somerset Skatepark which is situated only a short stroll from the world famous shopping strip of Orchard Road. In Jakarta the demo will take place at Green Skatepark, an expansive recreational park in Jakarta’s east.
Each stop will also include a meet and greet session with the DC team at one of DC’s flagship stores where fans will get an opportunity to have photos with the pros, receive autographed memorabilia and have a chance to win some great prizes.
Anticipating the DC SEA TOUR 2013, Sammy Gosling, DC South East Asia Marketing Executive stated, “Skateboarding in South East Asia is taking off and the skate community is becoming increasingly global due to social media. The local skate communities follow the global athletes such as Nyjah Huston online so it is great for them to get an opportunity to mingle with them in the flesh. By continuing to invest in the development of skateboarding in the region we hope to see a skater from South East Asia rise to the top of the world’s skateboard rankings in the future.
