It was indeed a momentous evening at the 7th High Club in Bonifacio Global City as DC’s world-renowned skate team invades Manila. The DC South East Asia Tour 2013 features some unique skateboarding talent which includes Nyjah Huston, who recently won ESPN’s Action Sports Athlete Of The Year award. Wes Kremer, Matt Miller, Cyril Jackson, Tommy Fynn and Jake Hayes were also there to put on a high dose of skate action for the Filipino skateboarding fans.
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.”
“We are very much excited with the arrival of DC’s athletes in Manila. The emergence of international celebrities and athletes visiting our country the past year has made Philippines a destination for arts, music and action sports,” shared Edilyn Yu, DC Shoes Philippines’ brand associate, “DC’s goal is to cultivate a healthy community for skateboarding and for this community to grow. The DC South East Asia Tour 2013 is for Filipino skateboard riders and enthusiasts alike, to bring the skateboarding community together and to encourage Filipinos to pursue their love for the sport, that one day, a Filipino skateboarder may join the international scene as well.”
