Lasek, Barros and Miller on top at Dew Tour!

Baltimore native Bucky Lasek won the Skate Vert Dew Cup in front of his hometown audience at the Dew Tour Beach Championships in Ocean City. The crowd erupted in applause as the local legend performed a near flawless second run. Lasek’s run included of a drop-in to switch 360, a nollie flip stalefish and boneless rodeo. Pierre-Luc Gagnon and Sandro Dias put down technical runs to secure the second and third positions on the podium.

Pedro Barros continued his winning streak at the Skate Bowl in Ocean City today, claiming the Dew Cup at the Dew Tour Beach Championships for the third straight year. His fast and aggressive skating allowed him to boost above the rest of competition. Barros used his amplitude to his advantage scoring an 89.62 with a run that included an alley-oop indy over the hip, a huge 540 and a long Smith grind in the deep end. Hometown hero Bucky Lasek secured the second place position with Kalani David rounding out the podium in third.
 
“The competition was amazing,” said Barros. “The level of talent was super high. They had a final with a lot of young people like myself, Kalani, and Tom and Bucky is still out there killing it.”  Barros also praised the beach location of the event.  “Ocean City is always amazing.  I really enjoy myself here.  It’s a pleasure to be here and skate this amazing bowl with everyone.”0Vert podium
