All new for 2017 is a Pro Bowl competition in a bigger bowl and a new amateur division — in addition to the existing Pro Street and Team Challenge events.
The bigger bowl is nearly doubling in size, which should give ample opportunity for the world’s top skaters to push their limits in front of fans.
Curren Caples, one of the 24 invited pros is excited about the new format and bigger bowl: “I’m hyped on Dew Tour having a dedicated bowl event this year and a contest format that appeals to all different types of pros’ styles of skating.”
With the changes on the bowl side of things, the street course will also be redesigned and will offer three progressive sections. The Tech Section will include flat bars, manual pads and ledges; the Rail Section will provide a challenging layout with an A-frame and 9-stair rail; and the Gap Section will give plenty of chances for large gaps and creative thinking for the skaters to show off their talents.
