Under the blazing sun and 90 degree temperatures in downtown Los Angeles, many of the world’s best professional skateboarders took to the Dew Tour’s street and streetstyle courses over the weekend. On Saturday, Brazil’s Kelvin Hoefler nailed down impressive tricks in each of the sections of the street course to take home his second straight Dew Tour win. On Sunday morning Kelvin signed in as an alternate (Ishod Wair pulled out) and continued his momentum up the hill on Broadway Street, where he took the win over Trevor Colden who skillfully landed in second and Ryan Decenzo killed it to take third place earnings.
For complete results, photos and video recaps of all the action, drop by the Dew Tour site.
