For the first time ever, TransWorld SKATEboarding and Dew Tour are teaming up to host a Shop Showdown video contest on to find the best shop team in the country. We invited 16 skate shops to create a 3-minute video edit in the span of one month featuring their best shop riders to be judged on creativity, flow, and skill. With no pro involvement, this contest is a prodigious way to shine some light on the underdogs who constantly put in work for their local shops. All 16 videos will be posted to and bracketed against each other until the final 2 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 2 teams will be flown to Los Angeles, California, to attend the Dew Tour on August 13th where the final 2 videos will be broadcasted through the Dew Tour webcast. We’ll be inviting viewers to cast their final votes on August 13th and 14th during the webcast. The winning shop will be announced at Dew Tour during the live webcast on Sunday, August 16th. #DewTourShopShowdown


Bru-Ray: Atlanta

Tons of Footage on Thrasher this week, catch up with it all right now 

The Big Dog flew down South and captured Grant, Raven, Raney and the homies decimating the Kennesaw park. There's more to this ATL excursion. This is only Part 1...
The crew dissects the unique moonscape at Grant's place and then they really cut loose and go warp speed on some gigantic concrete waves.
A good ramp session always involves skaters pushing each other, but this one gets wild. Grant, Raven, Raney, Plunkett and others do some sick transfers and wall-crawls. Thanks for the trip, guys.
Grant, Raven, and Raney continue their Georgian destruction with a scorching pit session. Fire Walk with Me...
It's been a full week of ATL with Raney, Raven, GT and the boys. Kick your feet back, crack an ice cold one and enjoy the ride-it's Yardsale time.
