ORLANDO, FL (December 4, 2017) – In its 13th season, Nautique is proud to announce the dates and locations for the 2018 Nautique Big Dawg World Tour presented by O’Brien. As the premier tour for 34-mph slalom skiers across the globe who are over 35, the Big Dawg World Tour is towed exclusively by the record-setting Ski Nautique 200.

For the 2018 season, each stop will include two rounds of 34-mph slalom action, followed by a bracketed 16-skier head-to-head finale that keeps the entire crowd on the edge of their seat. The tour will include 4 qualifying stops at premier waterski venues as the top slalom skiers battle it out for a spot in the Big Dawg World Tour Finals.

“O’Brien is excited to be supporting the Nautique Big Dawg World Tour in 2018,” said O’Brien General Manager Pete Surrette. “As the premier tour for the 34-mph slalom skiers who are over 35, the Big Dawg is a great showcase for waterskiing.” added Surrette.

“The Nautique Big Dawg World Tour is an elite series that brings together some of the top slalom skiers from around the globe,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “With the support of O’Brien, we’re glad to see this series carry on in 2018.” Meloon added.
