1 Month. 5 Boroughs. 1 King of New York.

DC Shoes headed to NYC to do a series of 5 amateur skateboarding contests spread over three weekends held at legit skate spots in each of the five boroughs of New York City — Stanton Island @ABC Ledges, Brooklyn @ John Dewey High, Queens @ Flushing Meadows, TheBronx @ Rafael Hernandez Academy, and Manhattan @ Brooklyn Banks to crown the King of New York.

Each contest was run in a jam format limited to approximately 50 amateurs who had to pre-qualify on the morning of the event. The winner of each borough won cash and prizes, and the competitor with the most accumulated points won the grand prize after all five contests and was crowned the King of New York.

The entire DC Shoes skate team helped with judging the contests and, of course, did some skating of their own. Fans keep updated on the happenings of the team and the contests via constant blogs and photo updates on our King of New York Microsite, with the video podcast trending globally on iTunes.
