Tuesday 21st July - DC’s King of Series, returning for its fourth year, kicks off this weekend the 25th and 26th July in Dublin. The 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.
