DC Skateboarding Team   The Project Granite Asia Tour | Tokyo, Japan

Team member Colin McKay, PJ Ladd, Ryan Smith, Jani Laitiala, Matt Miller, Marquise Henry, Greg Myers, Wes Kremer, and Evan Smith swept cross Asia last week for http://dcshoes.com” target=”_blank”>DC Shoes first ever tour in Asia – Project Granite Asia Tour.  After a mad dash through 3 cities in a week, the DC Team arrived at its final destination in Asia, a 3 day stay in Tokyo.  An impromptu demonstration and autograph session took place on the first day, only to have the local police shut the unauthorized gathering down. During the second day, over 500 skate fans, fellow skaters, and VIPs came out to Shinkiba, Chiba just outside of Tokyo, to see the DC Skateboarding Team in action.  Not to skimp out, DC created a skatepark exclusively for the event.  On the final day, members joined photographer Mike Blabac for Japanese debut of his first book, http://freshnessmag.com/2009/07/07/dc-shoes-x-mike-blabac-blabac-azure-mid-blabac-photo-book/” target=”_blank”>BLABAC PHOTO The Art of Skateboarding Photography, and his very own signature sneaker, the http://freshnessmag.com/2009/07/07/dc-shoes-x-mike-blabac-blabac-azure-mid-blabac-photo-book/” target=”_blank”>DC Blabac Azure Mid.

Though it ended as quickly as it started, the DC Skateboarding Team’s whirlwind tour around the globe continues this week with stops in Barcelona and Dublin.
