C h ad Powers, 27 from A K ,
brand branching out.
DACS Skateboarding started in November of
2008 for the reason of helping out the skateboarding community. The company was started by a mother of 4 boys who enjoyed skateboarding. The joy of giving away free boards and having a website that stayed in touch with things related to the skateboarding culture was the purpose of starting DACS Skateboarding. Soon DACS Skate shop was launched giving a wide variety of skate gear and clothes. Knowing that some could not afford the gear DACS decided to giveaway gear by having them register online to get a chance to win a deck. The success of that was overwhelming, from Austrailia to the USA everyone started registering. It felt good to help out kids. Our mission is to help skateboarding to be seen in a positive way so the community will treat skaters not as criminals but as a part of the community. Our goal is to unify individuals, improve fitness, develop self-confidence and provide a personal sense of accomplishment.
Now in 2011 we are branching out to showcase bands, and we have for the first time allowed skaters to be sponsored by us. Also, the “DACS” brand is getting into another sport the community has shown interest for and that sport is paintballing.
Paintballing! Yes, that’s what I said. Is paint-
balling a sport...well after researching a little. Colleges actually have tornaments and there are different associations, for example the NCPA. DACS is wanting to get more information out so people who do enjoy playing the sport will have a place they can come to get info and feedback from actual players. May start giving away free stuff assciated with paintballing. Just like when DACS Skateboarding started out and still continuing to help out the skate community. This will be another branch into helping out another group.

DACS Crossword Puzzle 1
A word to DACS skate fans and future fans. We respect everyone who skates. We’ve noticed that skateboarders don’t seem to have respect for each other, by making fun of other skaters styles or not giving them a chance at the ramps at the parks.
Stop the disrespect towards your fellow skater. We are always watching and rewarding those who love the skate scene and show respect towards each other.
That is the definition of a DACS RIDER!
