Dew Tour 2014 Bowl
Ocean City, Maryland 6-29-2014
This was Dew Tour’s 10th consecutive year and 4th year being hosted in Ocean City, MD. The bowl opened on Wednesday 6-24 and closed on Sunday 6-29. It was built by http://www.spohnranch.com/. Shallow 7′-Deep 12′.
For 3 years the bowl had the same design. This year Dew Tour wanted a fresh bowl to prevent the Veterans coming back doing the same lines they did to win the year before. The deep end was challenging to put it lightly. Riders would go over the hip then hit the corresponding wall then exit the deepend or halfpipe it for a few walls and then get out.
Bucky Lasek –” I feel like an adult in the McDonald’s play land ball room, this thing is small!”
Josh Rodriguez – “I’m just glad they changed the design of the bowl. Clean slate for everyone. New lines. New faces. New tricks. I dig the clam. That was fun. Deep end was questionable for me but overall fun”
If you had asked me who was going to be on the Bowl podium, I would have said- Pedro, Bucky & Alex. Pedro had won the previous 2 years and Bucky came in second. Alex Sorgente has been on a tear in 2014 placing 1st in Australian Bowl Riding Championship & 2nd at both Bowl-a-rama contests- Bondi & Wellington. But while in France, someone broke into Pedro’s hotel room and stole his passport. He was not permitted to enter the US. Bummer for him, but an opportunity for everyone else.
