In line with the global celebration Go Skateboarding Day on June 21, DC invites local skateboarders to be part of history as it intends to break the record for the number of participants in a skate parade. The previous record was 498 skaters recorded in Los Angeles, California. The American footwear brand is gunning for 1,000 participants for this event, which will start in Manila and end in Circuit Makati.
Bibs will be given to all participants for the official headcount, and the first 1,000 skaters to register will get an additional bonus: limited-edition DC x Grind t-shirt, stickers, and other merchandise. A skating competition will then be held at the Mountain Dew Skate Park after the parade in which cash prizes and DC merchandise are in store for winners of the various categories of the Core Competition: the first-ever DC Invitational, Highest Ollie, Longest Gap, and Best Grind. The Skate Submit contest will also present an award to the skater with the best trick video.
Pros like Norwin Caluya, Cyril Jackson, Chase Webb, and Alex Lawton will grace the event, and lucky skaters and fans will also be treated to demos and free skate sessions with these veterans.
