Today’s Dew Tour activities also featured a panel discussion with pro skateboarders and industry leaders to discuss the Olympic qualification process leading into Tokyo.

The expert panel session featured:

  • Curren Caples, Pro Street and Park Skateboarder (USA)
  • Mariah Duran, Pro Street Skateboarder (USA), USA Skateboarding National Team Member
  • Red Gerard,Olympic Gold Medalist Slopestyle Pro Snowboarder (USA)

Various members of the international and national media including representatives of the New York Times, the Washington Post and NBC were on hand to ask questions of the panel.

Juice Magazine’s Dan Levy was on the scene to ask a few questions regarding the inclusion of all skateboarders wishing to participate in the Olympic qualifier events, as well as the possibility of future Olympic Games including additional disciplines of skateboarding such as vert, slalom, downhill racing, etc. Dan also took this unique opportunity to ask about the impact of Olympic skateboarding on the building of skateparks around the globe.

In addition to the street and park skating competitions, which run Thursday through Sunday, at the 2019 Summer Dew Tour, on Saturday, June 15th, Bones Love Milk and Transworld SKATEboarding will present the “Battle of the Shops,” with five of Southern California’s skate shops competing on three pro course elements in a jam format.

What’s more, Mountain Dew has announced a limited-edition collaboration with GIRL Skateboard Company and local Californian artist, Tim Lahan that will make this Dew Tour one to remember. For the collab, pro skater, Sean Malto, picked out his favorites of Lahan’s work.

“I’m really excited to see this collaboration come to life at Dew Tour and beyond this summer,” comments Malto. “GIRL has been with me my entire skateboarding career, so it was really cool to have them partner with Dew. I know the fans will enjoy it as much as I do.” 

Bright, bold and euphoric colors give off the summer-time vibe, the outdoors and Mountain Dew’s “Let’s Do” attitude. The whole collaboration includes custom skate decks, t-shirts, and towels to name a few pieces. All these items and more are dropping at Dew Tour June 13-16, and will be available at over 500 skate shops worldwide and at crailtap.com.
