In addition to hundreds of skateboarders and BMX and FMX riders, Lil Wayne is scheduled to make an appearance at the Dew Tour skateboard finals Saturday at Civic Center.

The announcement was made with little fanfare on the event website this week:

A skateboarder himself, Lil Wayne will bring his passion for skating to the street course in San Francisco, while supporting the athletes competing for the Skate Street Dew Cup. His charismatic and spontaneous personality will augment the excitement of the contest, airing live on NBC at 1:30pm ET / 10:30am PT. Paul Rodriguez, Ryan Sheckler, Chaz Ortiz and Nyjah Huston are among the top names competing in the event.

Event organizers say Wayne will perform one or two songs sometime after the skateboard finals start at 10:30am. The appearance is a marketing play connected with the DEWeezy campaign launched at SXSW earlier this year, but we’ll give a little credit to Wayne who can at least ride and perform a few basic tricks. He’s been hitting skateparks around the U.S. and having skateboard fun with his model friends, too:
