    Lausanne, Switzerland

    With the current large group restrictions, international travel bans, and World Skate and Dew Tour’s dedication to safety, the summer Dew Tour competition scheduled from May 7-10 in Long Beach has been postponed.

    Serving as both a 5 Star Street and Pro Tour Park event, Dew Tour was set to serve as the last Olympic qualifying event in the U.S. before the Tokyo 2020 Games. We are committed to the safety of our athletes, staff, partners, vendors and fans. World Skate will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, as we explore all options related to the skateboard Olympic qualifying process and keep you updated as more information becomes available.
