Wade DesArmo discusses growing up in Ottawa Canada, winning the world Karate championship at age 11, the struggle of coming up in Canada, finally getting on DGK, the rise and fall of the ghetto gown, people thinking he doesn’t skate because he’s not active on social media and much more in the latest episode of The Nine Club.
Lenny Rivas has a special connection with Tijuana, Mexico. He’s always really wanted to do something for the kids in Mexico; so he arranged a DGK product giveaway and a demo with himself, Dane Vaughn, and Woogie at Parque De La Morales. This trip is featured in the new Kayo Magazine, available for free at skateshops everywhere.
You saw how Andreas Belton won DGK’s Self Made contest; now see him come to California and live his dream with the DGK team. The second DGK Self Made contest will be starting soon, follow @DGK on instagram to get involved.
Dreams do come true, just ask 19 year old Andreas Belton from Durham North Carolina. Andreas’ life changed when he was convinced by one of his friends to enter DGK’s Self Made contest and won despite thinking that he did not have a chance. The premise of the contest is simple, post your best 15 seconds of footage on Instagram and tag @DGK and #dgkselfmade. The fans pick their favorite videos each week and eventually narrow it down to six finalists which are voted on again to choose the ultimate winner who will be flown out to California to spend a weekend skating with the DGK team. Andreas describes the experience as being the opportunity of a lifetime.
You’ll have an opportunity to win a chance of a lifetime from DGK later this year when DGK launches Self Made 2. Follow @DGK on Instagram for more information.
