Best Damn Shop is a Wrap!

This year's installment of Best Damn Shop was our best yet. The park was packed all day long and the skating was the best we've seen so far. In the end Palace 5ive from DC takes the vaunted trophy home yet again (for the third time in a row....), followed closely by Pitcrew from MD, Venue from VA, and Another from NC. At the end of the day there were a ton of shops that really stepped up and represented, and we want to thank everyone who came down to support the event.

Special thanks to Bob Reynolds and the crew at Nike SB, Bob, Karin, & Emma from Red Bull, Jim T and crew from DLXSF, everyone at the Skateboard Mag, Mark from Blue Point Brewery, and Greg from Six Forks Pub for giving us the resources to make this event happen. And thanks to our celebrity panel of judges - Mike Sinclair, Bobby Worrest, and Connor Champion for their time, and DJ Spcl Gst for spinning the tunes.

Look for the official clip early this week, we will see you next year!

It’s On! BDSC 2011 Will Be Friday & Saturday, October 21st and 22nd!

Sorry for the hold-up, but the sponsors are on board, the park redesign is planned and we are ready for Best Damn Shop 2011! After the carnage from last year (with DC's Palace 5 taking the trophy home) we can't wait to see what everyone has up their sleeves for this installment of the best shop contest on the East Coast! Just like last year, if you've participated in the finals of any BDSC before, you're automatically entered into the finals on Saturday. If you haven't made it to the finals or ever participated before, don't worry. You're still welcome to come out, you just have to pay the $150 entry fee.

Best Damn Shop – Part 2 | The Contest

Enjoy the official clip from the Best Damn Shop Contest below. As you will be able to see, if you didn't make it to the contest, you missed out big time. We want to take this opportunity to thank all 24 of the shops that made the trek down (or up) to Project 58 in Raleigh for this year's contest. It was by far the best BDSC we've ever held, and we are already looking forward to the 2011 edition of the contest. Finally, props to Palace 5ive in DC for taking the trophy back home for a year, and also to Dominion and Vertical Urge for putting up one helluva fight. See you next year!

  2. Backdoor
  3. 17th Street
  4. Delicious
  5. Skate Lair
