Each summer, the world’s most extreme athletes embark on Ocean City, Md for the annual Dew Tour Beach Championships. The Beach Championships, which kicks off the summer-long Dew Tour competition that also has stops in the mountains and on the West Coast, brings the best skaters, bikers, and surfers on the planet to Ocean City for a four-day extravaganza. Those who participate get the chance to showcase their skills along the sea while competing against their peers for coveted prizes and, perhaps more importantly, bragging rights. This year, the Dew Tour returns to Ocean City June 25-29.
Although times and specific details are still being determined for this year’s Dew Tour competition by event organizers, they are scheduled to be announced this week. The Dew Tour, which will once again emanate from the Ocean City inlet, should feature the following events: BMX Park, BMX Vert, BMX Street Session, Skateboard Bowl, Skateboard Vert, Skateboard Street Session, Legends Skate Bowl, and the Surf Showdown.
As Dew Tour and Allied Sports finalize details for the 2014 event it is expected that many perennial performers will return. Maryland’s own Bucky Lasek is expected to compete, as are other top contenders on the skating/biking circuit such as Ryan Nyquist, Scotty Cramer, PLG, Pedro Barros, and Jamie Bestwick. You can also expect to see some of your favorite extreme sport legends, as well as up-and-comers looking to explode onto the scene.
Dew Tour may highlight some of the world’s most exciting athletes, but it is way more than just a weekend-long skating, biking, and surfing competition. The Dew Tour Beach Championships also features events and concerts that celebrate the lifestyle associated with action sports. While Dew Tour has yet to finalize performances for 2014, in previous years the event has hosted numerous national recording acts on the inlet stage, including Talib Kweli, New Politics, Krewella, and Kid Cudi. In 2013, the Dew Tour also hosted the Dew Tour Experience which was an event dedicated to art, music and the culture of extreme sports. In addition to music and lifestyle events, the Dew Tour is also comprised of an array of activities to occupy the entire family, including product demonstrations, a slack-line competition, vendors, DJs, and more.
