A drinks company is coming to Northampton to find two talented skateboarders to represent the country in a major skating event in Amsterdam.

Montain Dew’s #DewTourBootcamp will be coming to Radlands Plaza, off Bedford Road in the town centre, on June 27, inviting young skaters from across the UK to show off their skills and compete for one of the places at the European final, during the UK Bootcamp event.

Judged by the Dew pro skate team, two winners will receive a weekend ticket to Amsterdam to compete against winners from a variety of European countries in the Dew Tour Am Series finals on August 30. That winner will receive a VIP skate trip for two in Los Angeles, where they will meet the official Dew skate team.

In addition to the skate competition, the Dew Tour Bootcamp event in Radlands Plaza will include a variety of activities, such as on-the-spot prizing, live DJ’s and demos from three of the Dew team’s athletes: Keelan Dadd, Boo Johnson and Nick Tucker.

The competition is limited to 75 places and there will be a Mountain Dew Marquee where entrants can register on the day.
