Back for the third year in a row, TransWorld SKATEboarding and Dew Tour have teamed up to host the Shop Showdown video contest on skateboarding.com. 16 shops across the country were tasked to create a 3-5 minute video edit in the span of one month featuring their best shop riders. With no pro involvement, this contest is 100% crafted to shine some light on the underdogs who constantly put in work for their local shops from coast to coast.
All 16 videos will be posted to skateboarding.com and bracketed against each other in groups of four until the final 4 videos are determined through a blend of audience voting and expert analysis by the TWS edit staff and select pros from the Mountain Dew skate team. The winning team will be flown to Long Beach, California, to attend Dew Tour on June 15th where four of their shop riders will compete head-to-head on the newly updated Dew Tour course in the amateur contest, which will be broadcasted shortly after on NBC Sports. The winning shop will receive a $5,000 cash prize, 2-page editorial feature in an upcoming issue of TransWorld SKATEboarding, an all-expense paid trip to California and much, much more.
