Yesterday Nike SB invited the winners of each Project DSS event plus the Nike SB team riders to an exclusive session at Nike Town Berlin. There they had the unique possibility to skate through the huge Nike shopping mall. After closing time, everyone could enjoy dinner while Jan Kliewer from Yamato Living Ramps revealed the outcome of the votings and the construction plans for the expansion of the Dog Shit Spot at Warschauer Straße. The final outcome of your votes and thus the plans for the park will be presented on Go Skateboarding Day next week. So make sure to join the upcoming Nike GSD event! For more information click here.
Yesterday the final voting event for Project DSS went down at Ringpark. It was a great success. Once again many locals gathered together to have a say in the construction plan for the expansion of Berlin’s famous DIY spot. While everybody was served cold drinks and grilled food, the session gained momentum and many tricks went down the bigger obstacles of the park. At the end, local hero Max Obert well-deserved could take home the 500€ voucher for Titus Zoopreme, also for the pleasure of his crew mates.

Yesterday everybody gathered at the Titus Berlin Bowl for the second Project DSS event. Locals and visitors skated the bowl together during the open session, the crowd seemed to constantly switch between the session, the BBQ, the bar and not least to participate in the second vote -it was a hard one because basically everything looked great-.
The bowl got shredded both with flow and aggressive moves by people like Joscha Aicher, Farid Ulrich and Patrick Rogalski. In the end, Thomas Schielke flew the highest and took home the 500€ MVP voucher.

Every year with the beginning of summer on June 21st (the longest day), skateboarders all around the globe meet up to celebrate the international Go Skateboarding Day. For this reason, Nike SB once again organized a whole event in Berlin. This year was different because of the Project DSS connection, the day started at a classic spot and ended at what will probably be one of Berlin’s new hotspots for the next years to come! On this day, Polendenkmal was host to the first best line contest and, people definitely went off! Some NBD lines were made with considerable ease and style. After that, we cruised down to eat and skate the DSS. Watch the video and see exactly what the atmosphere was like, who did what and who rolled away with the prize money.
We are proud to announce that Nike SB and PLACE have teamed up once again and this one is special because of the launch of the Project DSS. “What is the Project DSS?” you might ask. Well Nike SB has collaborated with Yamato Living Ramps and 1. Berliner Skateboard Verein e.V. to expand one of Berlins most famous DIY spots “The Dog Shit Spot”. To celebrate the start of this project, we will host a couple events starting with the official Project DSS Launch Event on the 17th of May. The first event will be hosted by Civilist at the Pappelplatz skatepark.
You can expect cold drinks, a BBQ, and an open skate session, but most importantly, YOU the people can vote on obstacles that will be built at the spot. So if you care about skateboarding, voting, changing your city and having a good time, head over to Pappelplatz skatepark to participate in the Project DSS Launch event.
