The event will bring together the biggest names in BMX, skateboarding and surfing to Ocean City.
But with all the hoopla this weekend, it’s easy to forget that skateboarding is prohibited in certain areas of Ocean City. Some say the Dew tour is a sign that the town is having a change of heart.
Vince Boulanger is a 22-year-old surfer, and one of a few locals competing in this weekend.
"I feel like skating and surfing has always been looked down upon, and we are considered more of a nuisance than tourism," says Boulanger. "So I think this is a good opportunity for Ocean City to see the good things that skaters and surfers can bring to the town."
Dew tour officials say the nationally televised event is almost completely sold out.
In a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Transportation Secretary Nominee Anthony Foxx advocated for more infrastructure projects to spur economic growth.
