Due to Dew Tour serving as an Olympic Qualifying event, more skaters are rolling into registration and multiple practice sessions had to be assigned. The morning practice session saw a slew of street skaters get their hits in early and start to easily figure out their lines. As for the skaters who snoozed in, they caught their session in the evening hours.

As the sun started to dip down, lights started to brighten up keeping the session going into the evening. This year, Dew Tour plans to host skate events that start in the late afternoon and go into the early night. With the help of LED light technology, this setup should make for spectacular looking night events.
