In an absolutely huge day for the 2021 Pro Wake Tour, Guenther Oka lands a nearly flawless run to lock down the win in the final event of the series. Lake Lanier Olympic Park just outside of Atlanta, offered a perfect stadium style venue and a racus boat flotilla of enthusiasts to host the final stop of the 2021 Pro Wake Tour Powered By Supra Boats. Oka managed to put down an incredible line in his first run riding dock to dock in challenging conditions, then stomped a nearly flawless run in his second round, improving his score and sealing his victory. Nic Rapa, the most consistent competitor on tour this year also put himself in a podium position with his first run just ahead of young gun Sam Brown. Sam rounded out the podium as the slightly challenging water conditions played into Sam’s experience as he developed his stylish skills riding in salt water in a rolly bay in Australia.
