When the city of Baltimore hosted the 2009 Dew Tour, a multi-day event featuring some of the biggest names in BMX, motorcross and skateboarding, the city reportedly pulled in about $10 million.

So when Ocean City was announced as the only East Coast stop on this years tour, many around the resort began comparing the potential draw of the July 21 event with the hugely popular Ocean City Air Show.

The DEW Tour plans to hold the first ever surfing competition this year, as Ocean City becomes the first seaside tour-stop in the event's seven-year history.

Portland, Salt Lake City, and Las Vegas are the other stops on this year's tour.
