Ok, all you skate fans, the wait is finally over: the second stop of the Dew Tour, the Skate Open, ISF Skateboarding World Championships, goes down this week in Boston. All the big names are gonna come out to play. On the Park side, you’ve got last year’s winner Chaz Ortiz–all grown up after taking home a Dew Cup and killing it in State of Mind—defending his title against the likes of Sheckler, P-Rod, and Lutzka. While on the Vert side, PLG will be defending his Dew Cup against Burnquist, Bucky, and more, while also keeping an eye on the young set, led by Maloof Money Cup winner Alex Perelson.
But, this year things are a little different. Those Dew Tour regulars are going to be joined by a whole group of new-to-Dew-Tour name like Chris Cole, Tommy Sandoval, Dennis Busenitz, Nick Dompierre, and the list goes on. Oh yeah, and Eric Koston is coming along too.
Check the full list of Pre-Qualified Skaters. And this is only the beginning – with Open and International Qualifiers going down, this list will grow.
