DEW ACTION SPORTS TOUR ANNOUNCES SCHEDULE OF 2005 FREE FLOW TOUR

OFFICIAL AMATEUR SERIES WINNERS WILL COMPETE AGAINST PROS AT FINAL DEW ACTION SPORTS TOUR STOP

The Dew Action Sports Tour today announced the kickoff of the Free Flow Tour, the official amateur series of the Dew Action Sports Tour. A grassroots amateur skateboard contest series, the Free Flow Tour will bring jam-style contests to 15 communities across the country. The Free Flow Tour begins May 15 at the Vans Skatepark in Moorestown, NJ.

The Free Flow Tour will include skate competitions at 15 sites. The top skate finishers at each stop will be flown to the Dew Action Sports Tour’s Vans Invitational in Portland, OR, for the Free Flow Tour Finals, where one champion will be crowned. Each overall champion will win a wild card spot to compete against the pros at the Dew Action Sports Tour’s last stop, the PlayStation Pro in Orlando, FL.

The Free Flow Tour expects to draw thousands of enthusiastic participants and spectators to each of its scheduled stops. All competitors will take home Free Flow Tour giveaways with event registration. Following each contest, there will be a post-event party where event attendees can receive autographs from visiting professional action sports athletes, free gear and much more.

Judged by road crew staff and guest judges, the Free Flow Tour is open to all competitors, male and female, age 18 and under. Registration is open to 120 entrants at each site. Contest registration forms are available at participating skateparks, area skate shops, sporting goods stores and at www.dewactionsportstour.com/freeflow. There is a $10 entry fee, and all participants under the age of 18 must bring a parent or guardian to the event to sign a liability waiver.
