This past summer Ocean City, Maryland hosted another stop of the Dew Tour. At this years stop they made they wise decision to once again hold a “Legends” division in the bowl. Real legends like Steve Caballerro, Jeff Grosso (a one time resident of Ocean City, Md.), Christian Hosoi, Lance Mountain and Chris Miller made the eastward journey to rip in the impressive portable concrete mega bowl that the Dew Tour staff has been toting around the country!
Anyone who has had the privilege of watching Chris Miller skate knows that his style can’t be beat, so smooth. He has got a great flow as well. There was no way he couldn’t have won this contest. Of course it was great to see the other “Legends” ripping, that’s always a treat. Lance Mountain still progresses. To see Steve “Cab” do a full Cab was awesome…..Hope Dew Tour doesn’t let this one go from their 2013 line up!
Here is the official Press Release:
Ocean City, Md. – The 2012 season of the new Dew Tour kicked off today in Ocean City, Md, under sunny skies. With a line of spectators stretching down the boardwalk, the Pantech Beach Championships opened with a day of action both in and out of the water.
The pioneers of bowl skating convened on the beach in Ocean City to showcase their timeless skills as the sun set. After each skater landed his first run, it was clear the competition would be heavy. Chris Miller came out on top for the second year in a row with a run that made use of the whole bowl, combining lip tricks and airs, including a huge transfer into the deep end and frontside corner airs. Christian Hosoi and Steve Caballero rounded out the podium in second and third place, respectively.
“I’ve known a lot of these guys since I was 10 years old,” said Miller. “We grew up together and it means a lot to skate with them. It’s great that we’re all still skating and have a forum like this to come out and show the public what we do.”
Following the Skate Bowl Legends Final, the focus turned to the water for the GoDaddy.com Surf Expression Session. Eric Geiselman and Nate Yeoman battled it out in the final round of the tow-in contest while RAC spun a set under the lights. Geiselman edged out Yeoman, using the speed of the jet ski to complete a huge combination maneuver and the biggest air. “I’m super stoked on the win,” said Geiselman.
