The DC Video: Deluxe Edition DVD To Be Released Jan. 31
What’s the team been doing since The DC Video was released? What’s Big Black been doing? What’s Danny been doing on the Mega Ramp? How did they build that thing, anyway? What happened at the premieres, and what did the team get into on the tour? The DC Video: Deluxe Edition DVD is loaded with special features that answer all these questions, and more. It’s slated to be in stores on January 31.
The DC Video: Deluxe Edition DVD not only contains a re-mastered version of the original DC video, but tons of bonus features, including new and previously unreleased footage of the team, deleted scenes, more Big Black and Dyrdek Security, a look behind the scenes at the Mega Ramp, footage from The DC Video worldwide premiere tour, and much more.
Not only that, but the deluxe DVD’s packaging is the first book ever produced about a skate video—the DVD is attached to the inside back cover. The 86-page book documents the stories behind the video, and it’s filled with rare photos, exclusive interviews, memorabilia, and other odds and ends from the making of The DC Video. Stay tuned for breaking news and updates.
Grand Opening Of RDS Skate Park In Vancouver
If you’re not in Vancouver now, start planning your road trip. Vancouver skaters, get ready to be psyched, as the grand opening of the RDS Skate Park was held last Saturday. “The RDS team was there shralping,” said Colin McKay. “No music or signings, just pure skateboarding.” DC is proud to be one of the key sponsors of the new park.
Kevin Harris’s distribution company, Ultimate Skateboards, teamed with RDS and DC’s Canadian distributor, Centre Distribution, to build British Columbia’s largest indoor skate park. Kevin was Vancouver’s first professional skateboarder, and founded the legendary Skate Ranch, the skate park where many of Vancouver’s top pros got their start. Since the Richmond Skate Ranch closed its doors in 1993, the city of Vancouver has not had a true indoor skate facility—until now.
Located in the Riverport Sports and Entertainment Complex, the RDS Skate Park has 20,000 square feet of skateable terrain, and features a 12,000-square-foot street course, 8,000 square feet of ramps, a kids’ mini area, the world’s largest indoor vert ramp, and a full service RDS pro shop.
The park will be open seven days a week, noon to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. Even better, for the low price of $50(CDN) a month, you can skate it all you want. The facility will serve as a means for skateboarders to skate all season long, despite the rain that falls over the city for several months out of the year.

DC A Key Sponsor Of Point X Camp
You saw Danny’s part in The DC Video, and you might have wondered, “Where did they build that Mega Ramp?” The answer: Point X Camp. DC is one of the main sponsors of Point X, one of the best action sports camps anywhere.
Point X’s summer 2004 schedule is now available on-line. Check out their facilities, which include a 75,000-square-foot skate park and acres of BMX dirt trails—although if you go there, you will not get to ride the Mega Ramp.
