For the second year in a row the Charmcity Skatepark from Baltimore, Maryland has won the AM Invitational portion of Alli Sport's Dew Tour. This was the 10 Year Anniversary of the Dew Tour and they had chosen to once again visit the East Coast with a stop in beautiful beach town Ocean City, Maryland. This was the second year they held the AM Invitational Shop contest event during the Dew Tour. Both years have been sponsored by ION Cameras. ION provided prizing for the event. The winning shop team received a $500 check for the shop and a camera for each of the riders on the 18 and up 3 man crew which represented their shop.
This year Ocean City locals Dimensions and Get Gnarly were there to hold it down for OC. Palace 5 showed up to represent DC. The Charmcity Skatepark crew, last years champs from Baltimore had returned to rep Charmcity. The set up was definitely tighter this year. It had a much better flow then last year.Not only was the set up better but it seemed to be constructed better. This certainly helped the riders. The talent pool was off the charts this year. Stereo Skateboard's Yoshi Tanebaum was there destroying the rail and the steps with consistency and style. Matt Bullinger threw down hard, getting technical on the rail. He took a couple of hard slams and got right back up. That's always commendable. Dudes got heart! Everyone was skating really well but as the MC let everyone know Charmcity's Tyrone Henderson was in the zone.The MC's phrase of the day "The Tyrone Zone". The crowd was feeling it too. They loved Tyrone. His constant pounding of the course with trick after trick along with great performances from team mates Johnny McGuigan and Kadian Maxwell helped the Charmcity Skatepark secure another victory at the Dew Tour AM Invitational 2014.
