NICK DOMPIERRE JOINS DC SHOES AND APPAREL
DC is proud to welcome professional skateboarder Nick Dompierre to its footwear and apparel team. It takes just one look at this month’s cover of TransWorld SKATEboarding (June 2009) magazine to witness the raw talent Nick brings to the team.
“I’m excited to be a part of one of the most legendary skate companies of all time—on the same team as Danny, Colin, Kalis and everyone else; getting to shoot photos with Blabac—it’s pretty amazing,” said Nick. “Working with DC is giving some great opportunities, like building my first DC pro model shoe. I’m looking forward to a long future here.”
At only 22 years old, Nick just landed on his fourth cover, having now appeared on the covers of Thrasher, Slap, The Skateboard Mag, and most recently (and arguably the heaviest) TransWorld SKATEboarding. Add that to his long list of additional accomplishments, including his 2006 nomination for TransWorld’s Street Skater of the Year as an am, and it’s no wonder why skateboarders around the world are anticipating his latest video part in the upcoming Real Skateboards film.
“The dynamic that Nick’s aggressive style brings to the DC team is an amazing addition to our roster. He’s fast, raw and so talented,” said Ken Block, DC Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer. “We look forward to working with Nick.”
DC is excited to release to the world Nick’s intro part featuring unseen and new footage today at dcskateboarding.tv.
