By the end of day two of the Dew Tour in Boston, the massive field had been whittled down to the final twelve skateboarders: Dennis Busenitz, Chaz Ortiz, Peter Ramondetta, Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Sheckler, Ryan Decenzo, Carlos De Andrade, Chris Mendes, Chris Cole, Rodolfo Ramos, Dave Bachinsky, and Greg Lutzka. The finals were scored on the combination of a run and a jam session format. In the end, Sheckler came out on top, and consequently, thousands of teen and tween girls nearly brought down the barriers as they attempted to come within arm’s reach of the champion of the day. As you can tell by the video, photographer Chris Ortiz and I were flabbergasted to witness “The Sheckler Effect” first hand. Luckily all parties made it out alive, the smoke cleared, and it was time for the TransWorld Best Trick contest at the Dew Tour. Coming up next.—Eric Stricker
