DC ‘King of Dublin’ Update

As previously reported, DC’s ‘King of Dublin’ is taking place this coming weekend, and DC have just released updated information about the event. See below…

King of Dublin will welcome the city’s best unsponsored skateboarders to compete in a jam format contest, which will be held over two days at two well-known local spots in Dublin. The spots that DC has chosen to skate to crown the King will be Portobello Square and Wood Quay Amphitheater. Check out the photos of the spots here:

Each days contest will have up to 50 of the city’s top unsponsored skaters who will compete both days for the crown. The 50 contestants will be divided into four heats. Each heat will be given a 15-minute practice session, followed by a 30-minute jam format. DC’s Global Pro Skate Team, which will include, Josh Kalis, PJ Ladd, Jani Laitiala, Ruben Garcia and Jody Smith, will be on hand to judge and determine the winner who’ll join the DC King’s Team. The skateboarder with the highest total score for both days combined will be crowned the DC King of Dublin and along with the bragging rights will walk off with a hefty cheque from the €3000 prize purse.
