Outstanding Competition Highlights Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop #2 at Lake Allatoona in Acworth, GA
ACWORTH, GA (May 19, 2018)— The second stop of the 2018 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour (PWT) brought the world's top wakeboarders and wakesurfers to Lake Allatoona's Dallas Landing on Saturday. The action-packed day was one for the history books.
The final round featured some of the most intense competition the Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour has ever seen, and given the tight-knit races of the past, that's saying something. The podium was separated by a mere 1.67 points, while the difference between first and second was only a half point! It was a tough decision between Cory Teunissen and Nic Rapa's, runs but the judges awarded Rapa the top spot. Judge Andrew Adkison called it the hardest decision he's ever had to make. While Teunissen landed two double inverts and the only 1080 of the day, he left the window open, but just barely, for fellow Australian Rapa. Rapa seized that opening by going huge and stomping every single one of his tricks. In the end, that put him above Teunissen by a half point, and on top of the podium.
Rookie Tyler Higham made his first PWT finals, and while his runs weren't up to his expectations, he was excited just to make it that far. "It got a bit rolly in the finals, so I didn't land everything I wanted to, but to make the finals against all those guys in just my second PWT event was really cool," said the young Oregonian.
The Supra Boats SA550 is 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.
