Strong Skate Shops From Across The US To Compete In DVS’ First Video Contest

Back in July DVS announced Shopliftin—the company’s first ever shop video contest. Hundreds of shops entered, but only the first hundred to RSVP were made eligible to compete.

“It feels good to have received the level of interest that we got from shops for this contest,” says Podium VP of Marketing Tim Gavin. “We’ve got a lot of really great skate shops involved.”

Retailers too are excited to take part. “We’ve been overlooked for so many years out here in San Antonio,” says Goodtimes Skateboards Manager Mike Schroeder. “I was so excited to find out about this contest cause it gives our team a chance to shine and really be seen. We’ve already had a team meeting about it and went out filming this weekend.”

Down in Florida the response was similar. “Thanks to DVS for putting on this contest,” says Tommie Zam Owner of The Finest Skateshop in St. Petersburg Florida. “All our guys are super hyped and we’re going to do the best we can.”

Entered teams will have exactly five months to film, produce, and edit their submissions which will be judged by DVS riders, filmers, and team managers. The winning shops will be announced on March 1, 2009.
