All we can say is if you didn't catch our instagram video of  Misugu Okamoto of Japan yesterday, it's a must see. This 12-year-old girl was spinning 540's so high that you'd gasp watching - and 9 times out of 10 she'd make them. Her flawless runs packed with back to back tricks, gave her a huge lead of 15 points from her nearest competitor.


(Long Beach, Calif.) June 13, 2019 -- The world’s top skaters and some of skateboarding’s biggest fans converged in Long Beach today as day the first official day of Dew Tour went off without a hitch. Being the first-ever global Olympic qualifying event in the U.S. for men’s and women’s Park and Street skateboarding, athletes stepped up their skating like never before, fueled by the opportunity to accumulate points required to make it to Tokyo, Japan in 2020.

During the Women’s Park Semi Final, the 14 skaters from yesterday’s Quarter Final joined 10 pre-seeded athletes from the last World Championship for a park showdown. With only eight spots open for Sunday’s Final, the ladies had no choice but to put everything on the line. When their three runs were all said and done, it was Misugu Okamoto (JPN), who made her way to the top spot scoring a 61.00 securing the lead. Brighton Zeuner’s (USA) skills also paid off, scoring a 46.00 for second and Sakura Yosozumi (JPN) solidified third with a 45.03.

In the Women’s Street Quarter Final today, the top 12 skaters from yesterday’s Open Qualifier met 18 pre-seeded skaters for a chance to be one of the 12 who move on to Friday’s Semi Final. Each skater had two 45-second runs, with their best run counting toward their standing. Candy Jacobs (NED) led the pack scoring a 46.13; Momiki Nishiya (JPN), came in second with a 45.60 and Alana Smith (USA) followed with 42.73.
