DVS WELCOMES ROBBIE RUSSO TO THE TEAM


(December 17, 2008—The Chuck E. Cheese in Torrance, California) After 34 games of skeeball, 22 games of basketball, countless rounds of Dance Dance Revolution and House Of The Dead, 13 pitchers of Coke, 9 large pizzas, and a birthday cake DVS formerly welcomed 16-year-old Robbie Russo to the team.
Welcome Robbie!

A native of San Pedro, California Robbie was raised on the harsh concrete of the city's Channel Street skate park. "I remember seeing Robbie at Channel Street in the early stages of the park," recalls DVS Team Manager Gabe Clement. "As the park grew so did Robbie's skating. He rips that place like no other and his style on the stunt stick is a true pleasure to watch. Welcome to the team Robbie!"
