THE SUPRA BOATS PRO WAKEBOARD TOUR WRAPPED UP THE 2018 SERIES ON CENTER LAKE IN WARSAW, IN ON SATURDAY
Cory Teunissen And Sean Silveira Take Home The Wakeboard And Wakesurf Overall Championship Wins
The final stop of the 2018 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour (PWT) brought the world’s top wakeboarders and wakesurfers to Center Lake in Warsaw, IN to compete for the PWT finals. The athletes left nothing on the table as they battled it out to get on the podium for the final round and the overall championship finals.
Reed Hansen made his first final on the Pro Wakesurf Tour and earned third place for the day! As the winningest wakeskater of all time, Reed is used to victories, but it felt extra special to make his first pro wakesurf podium at this stage of his storied career. However, Sean Silveira won the overall Pro Wakesurf Tour title. After taking third overall last year, Sean put together an incredible season that highlighted his unique set of skills and styles to take the top spot with 365 total points.
Meanwhile Tyler Higham won Pro Wakeboard Tour Rookie of the Year. He finished fourth overall at Warsaw, and put together a really strong season. Tyler came in 6th in the PWT overall championship rankings with a total score of 242 points. At the same time, Nic Rapa earned the respect of fellow competitors and the crowd when it was revealed after the event that he was competing with a fractured fibula. Nic went into the final stop with a solid lead for the overall title. Despite his injury, he not only managed to ride, but make it to the finals. Ultimately, he couldn’t overcome it, and finished in fifth place. Overall, he finished the season in second with 350 total points.
The Pro Men’s Wakeboard podiums at Warsaw featured another Australian sweep, for both the event and for the overall PWT standings. It was further proof of just how successful the Aussie wakeboarders have become on the professional circuit, especially the PWT, which is the most competitive and longest running.
Cory Teunissen seals a win in Warsaw and his first overall PWT title on the last run of the day. Going off the dock, Cory knew what he needed to do to win. He threw down a flawless 1080, toeside double back roll, and double half cab roll to seal the deal and cement his place in PWT history.
The Supra Boats SA550 was the official tow boat for the tour again in 2018. Purpose-built to create clean, consistent and controlled wakes, it is designed to push athletes to new levels while preserving strict handling and a balanced ride for those onboard.
