For its second year in a row, TransWorld SKATEboarding and Dew Tour heave teamed up to host a Shop Showdown video contest on TWSkate.com to find the best shop team in the country.
This year, they invited 15 new shops along with returning champs, 303 Boards from Colorado, to create a 3-5 minute video edit in the span of one month featuring their best shop riders. With no pro involvement, this contest is a prodigious way to shine some light on the underdogs who have constantly put in work for their local shops. From coast to coast, all 16 videos will be posted to TWSkate.com and bracketed against each other until the final 4 videos are determined through a blend of audience voting and expert analysis by the TWS edit staff and pro skateboarders from Mountain Dew.
The final 4 teams will be flown to Long Beach, California, to attend the Dew Tour on July 23 and 24 where they will compete head-to-head on the newly updated Dew Tour course, which will be broadcasted shortly after on NBC Sports. The winning shop will receive a $5,000 cash prize, 2-page editorial feature in an upcoming issue of TransWorld SKATEboarding, and much more.
