ORLANDO, FL (December 16, 2016) – Nautique is proud to announce the dates and locations for the 2017 Nautique Big Dawg World Tour presented by O’Brien. Going into its 12th season, the Big Dawg World Tour is exclusively pulled by the world-record setting Ski Nautique 200.
For the 2017 season, the tour will include 4 qualifying stops around the globe at premier waterski venues as the top 34-mph slalom skiers who are 35+ battle it out for a spot in the Big Dawg World Tour Finals.
Each stop will include two rounds of 34-mph slalom action, followed by a bracketed 16-skier head-to-head finale.
“O'Brien is extremely proud to be once again supporting the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour,” said O’Brien General Manager Pete Surrette. “This has truly become the premier tour for the 34-mph slalom skiers who are over 35,” added Surrette.
“The Nautique Big Dawg World Tour is an incredible showcase for the sport,” stated Nautique President Greg Meloon. “This elite series brings 34-mph skiers from around the world together behind the Ski Nautique 200, and we are very excited to be able to host another season with the support of O’Brien,” Meloon added.
