It is good to see that skate contests are actually heading back to the streets again, even with some major industry sponsorship going on, but it does give the feeling of skateboarding a bit more of that “real” feeling.
Never the less a lot of amateur heavy-hitters were in LA this October 18th, 2008 to find out who would become the next DC King of LA. Nick Merlino took the crown with $6,000 buck on top for 2008.
