Recap: Dew Tour Weekend in Chicago

Posted by Rob Meronek on Tuesday, June 23, 2015

The #BoardrBoys were in Chicago this weekend helping our friends at Dew Tour get it done with putting on another ripping skateboard shindig, the first stop of the year. We've got some photos and video to recap if you weren't there to see it. Watch for the broadcast on your local NBC listings, too.

This kickflip frontside 50-50 was Alec's go to trick after taking a scary slam that had to stop the Contest.

Kelvin Hoefler fell just three times during the three jams on three different parts of the course. That's how you end up in first. This is a nollie backside overcrook.

A backside shifty in general is hard enough. Add in switch with a flip? Damn. Cody McEntire has them looking super good. I'm not even going to say anything about those shorts.

Some of the streets have a Brooklyn feel to them.

One quick fence hop to get rolling.

Over in the hotel, discussions brew about how to grab your board, or if you should even grab at all.
