Dew Tour Long Beach 2017 to feature new Pro Bowl contest and more

The new-look Dew Tour took Long Beach, California by storm in the summer of 2016. And Dew Tour Long Beach 2017 looks to take that success and bring it all to another level on June 15-18.

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.

Stay tuned to GrindTV and Dewtour.com/skate for more announcements about 2017’s biggest skate contest.
