Street and Vert Skateboarding Competitions to Take Place at Ace Hotel
Broadway Street to Close Between Temple and 1st for Dew Tour Streetstyle Competition
The Dew Tour hits the streets of Los Angeles, California, for three days of skateboarding-only competition Friday, August 14 – Sunday, August 16. For the first time ever, the Dew Tour will focus exclusively on the sport, lifestyle, art, music and culture of skateboarding. Centered around the Ace Hotel, Dew Tour Los Angeles will feature competitions in street, vert and the popular streetstyle discipline created by the Dew Tour three years ago.
Competitions begin on Friday, August 14, at 4 p.m. PT with skateboard vert returning for a record 11th consecutive year. The action continues on Saturday at 4 p.m. PT with Dew Tour Los Angeles' skateboard street competition. Mountain Dew athletes Paul Rodriguez, Trevor Colden and Sean Malto lead an impressive roster of athletes that also includes 2014 Dew Tour Champion Louie Lopez.
The weekend will culminate with the Dew Tour's skateboard streetstyle competition at 1 p.m. PT. Dew Tour Chicago winner Curren Caples looks to cap off an incredible summer with a second streetstyle victory of the season, but will be challenged by two-time Streetstyle Champion Ryan Sheckler, as well as 2014 Dew Tour Brooklyn winner Trevor Colden. The 2015 streetstyle competition will take place in downtown Los Angeles on Broadway Street between Temple Street and 1st Street.
