OCEAN CITY, Md.- For fans of big tricks and big air, the Dew Tour in Ocean City will be a perfect spot this weekend. The tour is back for its third year at the beach.

Wednesday was a practice day for the athletes involved. Crews were making final preparations for the competition, which is expected to draw a large crowd.

"I would estimate we're probably going to have 230,000 to 240,000 people in town for this weekend, so it is really going to be a good weekend," said Ocean City Mayor Rick Meehan.

Some of the crowd had already made their way to the beach by Wednesday. The Dew Tour Experience, which encompasses all of the interactive features available to fans, opened Wednesday afternoon. Trey Tomaschko and his family from Baltimore planned their vacation around the extreme sports event.

"Last year we came down by chance the same time they were having Dew Tour and we spent basically four days at the Dew Tour, while my wife was at the beach. So this year, we literally got the dates, I planned, took off work, and found a place to stay and here we are," said Tomaschko.

The first competition is scheduled to get underway on Thursday at 5:30p.m. followed by a weekend full of skateboarding, BMX, and even free concerts. The Dew Tour claims to have something for everyone.

"Me personally, the legends. It's just amazing to see those old guys out there still doing it. You know 40 plus years old, still ripping," said Rob Gross from Ocean Pines.

"The coolest thing I think about the Dew Tour is how much stuff there is and what you can see and if you're like a skater, like the three of us, you get to learn so much from them.  And that is what I think is so cool about it," said Mason Tomaschko from Baltimore.
