Meredith Moore, the GM for a skate shop in the area said that the festivities meant a lot more business. 

"It's zero to midnight," she said. "I mean, it's just nonstop. We open the doors and it's just 'we're busy.' There's people out front doing autograph signings. And just a lot going on. A lot of activity."

The event brought people from across the globe including Jamie Bestwick, a BMX legend who won the BMX Park category in every single Dew Tour competition, 9 years in a row. 

"Having the ten anniversary here in Ocean City - it's a tremendous event," he said. "I mean we've got the ocean, we've got the world's best Vert ramp on the beach... And ten of the best guys coming out to compete." 

Moore said that she was thrilled to see all of these fans come for the festivities, because it meant a serious boost in business. 

"This definitely helps our business," she said. "We love Dew Tour. We want it back every single year. We noticed a large increase in sales with the Dew Tour right outside our store."

The Dew Tour continues Sunday, opening at noon. The "Skateboard Bowl Final will start at 2:00, and the "BMX Vert Finals" will start at 5:00.
