Dew Tour returns to Chicago after a five year hiatus, coming to the beautiful new Grant Park Skate Plaza for skate and BMX street and streetstyle competitions.
Sunday of this event coincides with International Go Skate Day, and will feature special activities for local Chicago area skaters.
The skate action kicks off at 2:00 pm ET today with Skate Street and again at 5:00 pm ET for Skateboard Street Best Session at dewtour.com
With nearly 30 years as a professional skateboarder under his belt and credited as one of the pioneering forefathers of street skating it was a no-brainer to include the legendary Mike Vallely in the XGames Real Street contest this year. Chris Nieratko caught up with Mike to ask about his part, the helmet, his new brand Street Plant and more.
Bobby Puleo offers up a rare interview for Bobshirt as he discusses his last free skateboard, Mad Circle, INFMS, The Banks and more.
The Skateboard Story recently caught up with HUF staff photographer Brian Kelley and discussed his early intern days with Zoo York, traveling to Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar, and how a random email to Keith Hufnagel lead to a long term photography position at HUF.
Skateboarding has always attracted outcasts and misfits – the kids who didn’t make the team and didn’t need a coach telling them to “play the 5th quarter”. Jeff Grosso dedicates this Love Letter to them, the people that keep skating real; without them it might be all X-Games and skate coaches.
