The Dew Tour is coming to Boston!

Tickets are on sale for the Dew Tour in Boston June 25-26. Some of the biggest names who will be there are Shaun White, Ryan Sheckler, Paul Rodriguez and Buckey Lasek!

The Dew Tour is a competitive skateboarding competition series that has 5 stops across the country. This year, the first stop is in Boston! The Boston stop will also serve as the International Skateboarding Federation’s World Skateboarding Championship. Besides the title of Dew Tour Champion and receiving the Dew Cup, there is $2.5 million available in prizes. This is the premiere tour for professional athletes. The competitions will be broadcast live on NBC Sports, and distributed on MTV, MTV2, USA Networks as well as other channels like Fuel TV. But you really want to be at the tour if you can.
