July 6, 2009 – Shanghai, China – DC’s skateboarding team did a demo on July 4 at the world’s largest skate park, SMP Skate Park in Shanghai, China. Over 400 skateboarders, media and industry VIPs came to check out the demos and watch the DC skateboarding team handle their business on this insane concrete heaven.
The demo featured a special granite ledge that was built for the DC commercial that launched PJ’s signature shoe, the PJ S LX, and was also featured in Project Granite at theBerrics.com. DC also played the PJ commercial on a big screen during the event. To check out the commercial visit dcshoes.com/pj.
DC skateboarders, PJ Ladd, Colin McKay, Matt Miller, Marquise Henry, Greg Myers, and Wes Kremer as well as regional riders Bjorn Johnston, Kota Ikeda and Buchi all killed it on the street skateboarding course and signed autographs for their fans.
