Podium Skate, the Only Way to Qualify For 2017 Dew Tour Long Beach Amateur Contest

For the first time ever, Dew Tour is giving skateboarders everywhere the opportunity to compete in Long Beach by using the Podium Skate App. Podium Skate is a new app created by CA Productions that allows users to upload their footage and be ranked by our pro judges for a chance to be invited to the live event on June 15-18. This will be the ONLY way to participate in this year's Dew Tour Am contest.

Here's how it works… For the Dew Tour Am Bowl Competition, the user will upload one fluid bowl/ transition run up to 45 seconds long, with no music or graphics. For Dew Tour Am Street, they will upload one clip including 3 tricks (1 tech, 1 rail, 1 gap). Street clips can be filmed anywhere (parks or street) and must be less than 45 seconds long with no music or graphics.

After the public scoring round, the Podium/Dew Tour Pro Judging panel will score the top submissions and determine the final rankings.
