REDISCOVER DC

DC introduces Mike Mo Capaldi and Nyjah Huston to DC Skate Team with new brand campaign

http://youtu.be/wKfBSe7BVsw

 

January 2, 2012 – Huntington Beach, CA – DC Shoes announced today the launch of the highly anticipated Rediscover DC campaign for 2012. As part of the campaign launch, DC introduced its 2012 pro team roster that included two massive additions- pros Mike Mo Capaldi and Nyjah Huston.

 

The Rediscover DC campaign re-introduces the new DC skateteam at its best. For the initial launch, DC created a video presenting the skate team, and for the first time in nearly a decade, DC will debut a photo of the entire skate team together includingnewest skaters, Mike Mo and Nyjah. The campaign aims to highlight the caliber of athletes that ride for DC and invites consumers to rediscover the fact that skateboarding is the driving force behind the DC brand.

 

“DC has always been a skate company. Through ups and downs and growth, the core of what we do has always been skateboarding and this campaign is a reflection of that. We have the most amazing skate team in the industry and also in the history of the brand, and we are proud of that. Some of our skaters have been with us since the beginning. Some are new. Some have become legends. We have a team of athletes that ranges in talents, skills and ages, all of which are unbelievable. Always remembering where we came from and what we are about. That is Rediscover DC,” said Anton Nistl, President of DC.

 

His teammates have described him as a skater with absolute and complete technical dominance. At 21 years of age, Mike Mo Capaldi has already proved to be one of the best street skaters in the game. Mike Mo joins the team and is sponsored head-to-toe by DC footwear and apparel.

 

“There’s not many like Mike Mo. He’s one of a kind. I mean on a skateboard I don’t really need to explain much. He’s probably the best skater I have ever skated with,” said Mikey Taylor, DC pro and teammate. 

 

Seventeen-year-old Nyjah Huston was a fan of DC long before his introduction to the team. Skating since he was 5 years old, the youngest ever X Games competitor is known for skating the biggest stairs and rails with ease, and without hesitation. He joins the DC skate team with 3 X Games medals, and as the winner of the most consecutive Street Leagues and the overall 2011 winner. With only 12 years of skating under his belt, Nyjah Huston has already positioned himself as one of the greatest skaters of our time.

 

 “The 2012 team roster is exciting. I am the biggest Nyjah fan and supporter. To me, not only do Ihave a lot of belief in who he is, but I believe he will end up going down in history as one of the greatest skateboarders of all time,” said Rob Dyrdek, DC skater and teammate.

 

“DC is proud to welcome Mike Mo and Nyjah to the team. They are two of the most unbelievably talented skaters that we have ever seen. Mike Mo is one of the most innovative ledge skaters. He has a very casual approach to skateboarding, making stuff look just too easy.

 

“Nyjah skates amongst and against the skaters that inspired him, and already at seventeen years of age he is becoming one of those legends himself. The decision to bring Nyjah on was really solidified once we saw him together with the team. Nyjah Huston is the future of skateboarding, and the DC skate team has never been better,” by Jeff Taylor, DC’s Vice President of Marketing.

 

Mike Mo Capaldi and Nyjah Huston join a legendary roster of athletes on the DC skate team including Danny Way, Rob Dyrdek, Colin McKay, Steve Berra, Chris Cole,Josh Kalis, Mikey Taylor, Matt Miller, and Wes Kremer. Both Mike Mo and Nyjah will be making their first appearance as DC athletes skating at the Rediscover Oz tour in January 2012.

Nyjah Huston Clutches First Place After Event-Long Battle with Ryan Sheckler to Secure Victory

Glendale, AZ (July 17, 2011) – A crowd of over 16,000 fans packed Glendale’s Jobing.com Arena for the third stop of the 2011 Street League DC Pro Tour Fueled by Monster Energy (SLS). Fans witnessed some of the world’s best skateboarders go for broke for the top prize worth $150,000. In a trick for trick battle with Ryan Sheckler and Chris Cole, Nyjah Huston came out on top, continuing his streak for an unprecedented third consecutive SLS contest win this year, and walking away with his now third first place purse, totaling $450,000.

Fans watched in anticipation as Sheckler and Huston went back and forth between first and second with each other during the Big Section of the Finals. Neither Huston nor Sheckler held back bringing in huge scores at every attempt with tricks like Ryan’s Backside Lip Slide down the huge Hubba ledge and Nyjah’s Kick Flip Backside 5-0 Grind. In the end Nyjah Huston was out of reach from the pack being over ten points ahead of the rest of the pros with a 77.8 over Sheckler’s 66.0 score. Chris Cole rounded out the top three with a 59.6 score and landed the highest scored trick of the weekend with an amazing 360 Flip 50-50 Grind down the chest high Hubba Ledge in the Big Section.

“This is the best win yet,” said Nyjah Huston after winning his groundbreaking third SLS contest. “This course was really gnarly, so I had to work for this one a lot more. It feels really good!”

“Huston is unstoppable!” said Rob Dyrdek, Street League Founder. “It’s unbelievable to see a 16 year old, let alone anyone, skate the way he skates. Sheckler was on fire, Ryan gave him a real run for his money. Today was professional skating at its’ best.”

Street League pros put it down at the Stop Three Finals, skating a course with obstacles that were fairly larger than any previous Street League course.  It did not stop Chris Cole, however, from taking home the Monster Energy Best Trick Award worth $15,000 for landing a 360 Flip 50-50 Grind in the Big Section. 

Sandoval won the last remaining spot in the Stop Three Finals during the Make Your Own Luck Last Chance Qualifier that was held immediately prior to Sunday’s Finals, marking his first time to compete in Finals and ultimately qualified him to the Street League Championship in Newark, New Jersey on August 28th.

The 24 SLS pros voted for Sean Malto to win the Zumiez 24-7 Award worth $7,000. Malto was forced to drop out of the finals after sustaining an injury during practice. After the finals, all the skaters had one more chance to skate in the Wonka Free Ride for a shot at $10,000. It was once again Chris Cole who ended up with the prize, doing amazing tricks all over the course including a Frontside 180 to Switch Crooked Grind on the Big Section Hubba. This is Cole’s third consecutive Wonka Free Ride win.

By the end of Stop Three, 10 skaters stood on top of the overall standings after consistently dominating over each stop of the series. Nyjah Huston, Ryan Sheckler, Chris Cole, Paul Rodriguez, Shane O’Neill, Billy Marks, Chaz Ortiz, Mike Mo Capaldi, Mikey Taylor and Tommy Sandoval have all qualified to compete at the SLS Championship – a winner-takes-all event that is positioned to be the biggest contest in skateboarding history.  The SLS Championship takes place on August 28th at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey and will feature the top ten ranked pros of the 2011 competing for a $200,000 first place prize, the Nixon Championship watch and ring, and the revered title as Street League Champion. The Finals will air LIVE on ESPN2 at 5PM ET.

(Nyjah Huston)

“The excitement in Kansas City was incredible today” said Rob Dyrdek, Street League Founder.  “Hometown hero, Sean Malto had an unbelievable comeback after his injury and Chris Cole was only a trick away, but ultimately Nyjah Huston refused to lose!”

(Ryan Sheckler)

(Sean Malto)

Street League pros pulled no punches throughout the Stop Two Finals, landing innovative and technical tricks to avoid elimination. In the Technical Section, Mikey Taylor rolled away from an amazing Switch Frontside 180 to Frontside Feeble Grind down the handrail on his last attempt to jump ahead of Paul Rodriguez and Shane O’Neill. In the Line Section, Billy Marks put together one of the best lines of the contest with a Double Kick Flip down the stairs followed by an incredible Triple Kick Flip over the flat gap. Although Marks’ line just wasn’t quite enough to get him to the Big Section as he and Taylor were eliminated.

 

Another crowd pleaser was Ryan Sheckler, who won the last remaining spot in the Stop Two Finals during the Make Your Own Luck Last Chance Qualifier that was held immediately prior to Sunday’s Finals. Sheckler landed a Caballerial Kick Flip in the Big Section for 9.4 points. He went on to place fifth overall with 61.8 points and took home the Monster Energy Best Trick Award worth $15,000 for landing highest scoring trick of the day.

 

Huston was not the only pro with consecutive wins as collectively the 24 SLS pros voted a second time for Billy Marks to win the Zumiez 24-7 Award worth $7,000. After the finals, all the skaters had one more chance to skate in the Wonka Free Ride for a chance at $10,000. Tommy Sandoval, Torey Pudwill, Nyjah Huston & Billy Marks all skated solid, but it was Chris Cole who ended up with the prize, doing amazing tricks all over the course including a Backside 360 to Backside Nose Slide on the bump to hubba ledge.

 

Street League’s $1.6 million purse is the largest in skateboarding history and almost double the combined winnings for all other skate contests. Nearly $400,000 will be awarded at the next stop in Glendale, AZ at the Jobing.com Arena on July 16-17 with the SLS tour culminating in a winner-takes-all Championship in Newark, NJ at the Prudential Center on August 28. The SLS Championship will feature the winners of the first three stops of the 2011 tour along with the remaining top eight qualifiers who will compete for $200,000 as well as the title of Street League Champion.  Finals for the next stop will air LIVE on ESPN2.

Hyjah Huston – backside 270 nose bluntslide

“It’s the best feeling in the world to win the best skateboarding contest,” said 16 year-old Nyjah Huston after taking home the top prize in the Street League Stop One Finals.

 

“Today was the ideal way to kick off our 2011 series and first-ever live ESPN broadcast, said Rob Dyrdek, Street League Founder.   “We got to see some fresh faces in the finals battling it out with the top Street League pros from 2010 in the grandest stage possible.   Nyjah is clearly a star and his performance today will be remembered for years-to-come.”   

It was a trick-for-trick battle throughout the entire three sections of the Stop One Finals. In the first two sections, the Street League pros held no punches as they landed undeniably difficult tricks one after another in order to not be eliminated. Mikey Taylor, Mike Mo Capaldi, Billy Marks, and Paul Rodriguez got bumped out before they could get their shot at the final seven attempts in the big section of the course.

 

It was Billy Marks, however, who squeaked into the finals during the Make Your Own Luck Last Chance Qualifier held immediately prior to Sunday’s Finals, to win the last remaining slot. Marks landed the highest scoring trick with a switch bigspin heelflip on the big section to land the 10th and final spot. He would go on to skate his way into 7th place with 41 points and capture the 24/7 Zumiez award worth $7000 cash, which is decided by a collective vote from all 24 street league pros.

Street League’s $1.6 million purse is the largest in skateboarding history and almost double the combined winnings for all other skate contests. Nearly $400,000 will be awarded at each of the remaining three stops beginning with Kansas City, MO (Sprint Center) on June 11-12, Glendale, AZ. (Jobing.com Arena) on July 16-17 and the SLS Championship in Newark, NJ. (Prudential Center) on August 28 featuring the top ten pros. Finals of each stop will air LIVE on ESPN2.
