Amongst the team was legendary skater Nyjah Huston (US), Chris Cole (US) and ex- New Zealander Tommy Fynn (US).

Other stars of skating include: Mikey Taylor, Mike Mo Capaldi, Wes Kremer, Evan Smith, Marquise Henry, Davis Torgerson, Cyril Jackson, Madars Apse, Jake Hayes, Kieran Reilly, Bugs Fardell & Deon Williams.

The DC International Skating team are now off to Australia to complete the rest of the 2013 NZ/AU Tour which will see them visit Melbourne and Brisbane.
