Skateboarding

Long Beach is welcoming more than 300 of the world’s best male and female skateboarders who will compete in the Park and Street events for a chance to win the Dew Tour title, while earning valuable points toward their country’s Olympic skateboarding team. The Olympic qualification system will be based on World Skateboarding Rankings maintained by World Skate: Skateboarders are now earning points by competing in World Skate sanctioned events during the Olympic qualifying period which started January 1 of this year and will end May 31, 2020. Dew Tour, part of the World Skate sanctioned Five-Star Street and Park skateboarding will also serve as the last global qualifying event in the U.S. in 2020.

This year’s Dew Tour will host open qualifiers, quarter final, semi final and final rounds of competition, offering fans the chance to see both favorite and new skaters from across the globe. Competitions will start on Thursday, June 13 and will conclude on Sunday, June 16.

The Park competition course is comprised of a concrete “pool” with a combination of ramps and course bends. For the Street competition, a street-like course will be designed featuring stairs, curbs, slopes and rails.

Dew Tour is free and open to the public.

The weekend event also includes the Dew Tour Experience, a vibrant interactive sponsor village and Dew Tour on the Green, a festival of outdoor music, local food and drink vendors and lifestyle activations, including a public skatepark and a learn to skate area. Various events incorporating the Long Beach community will also be featured throughout the weekend through local nonprofit partners.

On June 13, at 10o'clock the Dew Tour Qualifier Crash Course will take place in the media area: An expert panel session and press brunch featuring pro skateboarders and industry leaders to discuss the Olympic qualification process leading into Tokyo. If you cannot attend, the event will be live streamed on DewTour.com

A total of six hours of Dew Tour coverage will air on NBC and NBCSN. The event will also be livestreamed in its entirety on Worldskate.tv and DewTour.com for a total of 31 hours LIVE.
