WHY / WHO:

The DC King of New York contests will run from approximately 11:00am - 5:00pm, with a maximum of 50 skateboarders participating in each event.  The contests are free to enter and will utilize a jam format with judging handled by a panel of well-known NYC skateboarders, industry insiders, and members of DC’s world-renowned skateboarding team. 

The top three finishers at each contest will take home cash and prizes, as well as valuable points in the overall quest to be named DC’s King of New York at the September 30th finale at the legendary Brooklyn Banks.  To remain in contention for this lucrative grand prize, local skateboarders are encouraged to enter all five contests over the three weekend stretch.

When it is all said and done, the skateboarder with the highest overall point total will be crowned DC’s first-ever King of New York and pocket plenty of cash along with a grip of stylish footwear and apparel from DC.
