Ryan Decenzo claimed the top spot in the skate park prelims, setting the stage for the final skate park competition of the 2010 Dew Tour. On a course that featured a Hard Rock-inspired guitar rail inside The Joint concert venue, Decenzo used a cannonball and a slew of other tricks throughout his run to lead the pack with a 92.50.
Alec Majerus, making his Dew Tour debut after winning the Gatorade Free Flow Tour crown last month, led by a seven-point margin before Decenzo's consistency bumped him into second place. The 15-year-old am landed a front feeble and blunt slide fakie for an 88.75.
Philippe Zwijsen impressed the judges by utilizing the course in unique ways after putting together lines that others couldn't do to earn his first spot in a Dew Tour final. Mario Saenz, Eli Reed and Sierra Fellers also advanced to tomorrow's finals.
The top nine skaters from prelims will all compete again on Friday, facing Ryan Sheckler, Chaz Ortiz and points leader Greg Lutzka in the skate park finals which take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. with the N.E.R.D concert immediately following. Dew Tour Championships tickets are still available.
