Finding Other Things To "Dew"

OCEAN CITY, Md. - With tens of thousands expected to hit Ocean City this week to catch all the action at the Dew Tour, we were curious to find out what else is going on besides the big show.

The Dew Tour is one of the biggest extreme sport competitions in the country, but what if you want to get in on some of the action?  The Dew Tour is full of options.

The Mongoose Pump Track is a small hilly course, where kids  could hop on a bike and ride like the BMXers.  "We're all about getting kids on bikes, and this is just one way to get a kid on a bike and try and work his way through a course," says Dave Duecker with Mongoose.

For Max from Baltimore, the track was one of the highlights "What's been my favorite part? I think um, the free stuff and two riding the bikes and stuff," he said.

If you're looking for a little high flying action, there's a relatively new sport called slacklining
 
"It involves doing acrobatics on a two inch piece of climbing webbing, so it's basically a two inch trampoline," describes Josh Greenwood with Gibbon Slackline, "you know it's actually not as hard as you would think."

Of course, WMDT's Jarred Hill and photographer David Lam had to give it a try...on a much smaller scale of course, but they probably need a little more practice.I

If you're in the mood for a little culture, just a few miles away in Berlin, was "Dew Tour Recognize: Art", a free art show and concert featuring work from local artists and some legendary skate boarders happening Saturday evening. 

Stephanie Karn with Punk Rock Fish Studio in Berlin says "what we're trying to do is pull together the everybody from out of town to come in and experience a little bit of our eastern shore culture with art, with music, and food."

Many of the free events are lasting throughout the weekend.
