A rendering of the planned layout for this year's show in Ocean City, Md. is bigger and more elaborate.

Organizers of the Dew Tour, a showcase for the athletes of the action sports community, say their stop in Ocean City, Md. this August will be bigger and better than ever. There's an added incentive this year, because this year the event, featuring the biggest names in skateboarding, surfing and BMX, will be free to the public.

Ocean City is the only East Coast stop on this year — the other stops are in San Francisco, Ca and Breckenridge, Co. Ocean City drew record crowds for the event last summer.

Dew Tour organizers say there will be an even bigger footprint on the beach this year, as they plan to build even more stadiums for the three day nationally-televised event.
