Being able to share these guys’ skills and talent with our skate and BMX community in Indonesia is really great, and this event is just a starter for what we will be giving to our DC fans and all of the extreme sport community in Indonesia. You’ll just have to imagine what will happen next!”

We’re just as excited as they are. Plus it’s a great way to show them that the DC brand is here to stay and that we are serious about giving them the best products in the marketplace. It will be a great experience, so make sure you don’t miss out on it.”
