Event Details: On Go Skate Day, MTN DEW launched a new summer skateboarding campaign, “Skateboarding Is Unstoppable.” The campaign celebrates and amplifies how far skateboarding has progressed and rolled out throughout July, ahead of Dew Tour at Lauridsen Skatepark in Des Moines, July 29 – 30.
As part of the campaign, professional street skaters Sean Malto, Mariah Duran, Theotis Beasley and Chris Colbourn returned to their hometowns to unlock spots and give local skaters an opportunity to ride otherwise off-limits areas across the country. The tour ends at the Lauridsen Skate Park where MTN DEW professional skaters will unlock the Dew Tour competition course to give the local community a chance to skate with the entire team in Des Moines, Iowa at Lauridsen Skatepark.
“I think every kid with a skateboard dreams of getting to skate a competition course,” commented Kansas City Pro Skater and MTN DEW team rider Sean Malto. “It’s dope that MTN DEW is unlocking this year’s Dew Tour course the day after the competition ends for anyone in Des Moines who loves skateboarding to participate. The Unlock the Spot event in Des Moines feels like a great way to close out Dew Tour and highlight the Skateboarding is Unstoppable Campaign.”
