DCP: Under The Influence

DCP: Under The Influence

DCP is a busy dude, but somehow makes time to drop heavy lines, plant trees, get tubed and most recently host a slideshow at Showcase Snowboard Shop in Whistler, BC. Sharing memorable stories and crediting those who helped shape his career, DCP ran through hand selected images from some of the most renowned photographers in the game. Coming out in full force to support the show were a slew of Whistler locals along with photographer Scott Serfas, Alex Warburton, JF Pelchat and YES teammates JP Solberg and Romain de Marchi. Ending the night with a silent auction and charity raffle, the event brought in another $1000 that will go toward planting trees in Costa Rica, a region where DCP has placed 291 trees and looks to get another 100 in the ground by this summer.

A man who stands strongly behind his projects, DCP is a major proponent for Protect Our Winters (POW), an environmental non-profit organization that works to fight global climate change. In addition, he makes sure a heavy chunk of his SPY goggle sales go toward reforestation efforts in Costa Rica through the organization Community Carbon Trees.

Holden X POW

Holden is proud to announce our new tee shirt collaboration with Protect Our Winters (POW) to be released August 2012.

All proceeds from this collection will go towards POW’s recently launched Coal Kills Snow coalition. The project is dedicated to shutting down coal mines and spreading education about environmental destruction from mining practices and coal burning. Coal is the number one contributor to global climate change. To stop this, Holden and POW have come together to ensure there is snow to play in for our future generations to come.
