The world’s top riders in Surf and Skim, will compete for their share of a $10,000 per-stop purse, for a total purse of $30,000.  Additionally, the top points finishers will receive a series bonus at the end of the tour.  The Supra Boats SE550 will be the official towboat of the Pro Wakesurf Tour.  The SE550 is also the official towboat of the Pro Wakeboard Tour.

I could not thing of a better boat to pull this event than the new SE550. I have seen first-hand how it can throw both a pro level wakeboard wake and an equally amazing pro level surf wave. Be prepared to see some of the best wakesurfing witnessed at a competition!"

$134,000 Purse at Stake

Orlando, Fla. (Feb. 26 , 2015) — The largest pro men’s purse in the 23 year history of the Pro Wakeboard Tour, $134,000, will be divided and at the conclusion of each of the four events around the U.S., $31,000 will be awarded to the riders.  The Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour will be making stops around the United States, including Texas, California, Wisconsin, and Georgia.  The events will take place on Saturdays only, with the exception of the first stop beginning on a Friday with a chance to qualify for the first competition.

"The Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour is focused on making pro men’s riding as progressive and innovative as possible,” said Rick Tinker, president of Skier’s Choice, manufacturer of Supra Boats. “The purse is almost one-third higher than last year, pays only the elite riders, and offers a huge incentive for the athletes to push the boundaries of the sport."

This historic, $134,000 pro men’s purse reflects Supra Boats and Bonnier Corp's commitment to and investment in the Pro Wakeboard Tour athletes.   All 18 positions will be paid out and riders will have a chance to go big or go home and vie for a lucrative spot on the tour.

"We have created a new benchmark for pro events,” said Matt Hickman, vice president of brand strategies at Bonnier Corp.  “With the largest pro men’s purse in PWT history and unmatched media exposure planned for 2015, athletes will realize more participant value than with any other event past or present."

Each of the four stops will pay out $30,000, and a progression award of $1,000 will be given to the rider at the selected stop that has a winning trick, accelerating the sport continually. A $10,000 series bonus will be given to the winner at the end of the Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour.

"I'm pumped for the progression award because it gives the riders a chance to throw down one huge, risky trick without it affecting the rest of our run.  Fans should see some new moves this year," said young gun and Supra Boats team rider, Daniel Powers.

Team Supra Rider Jamie McCauley Lands Whirlydick

Supra Boats @Supra_Boats team rider Jamie McCauley has been killing it on the water lately.  No surprise to us now that he's spending his days behind the Supra SE550. Those that follow this stuff know that there has literally only been a handful of riders that have successfully landed this trick behind a boat. He joins fellow Supra teammate Cory Teunissen as one of the very few to land the elusive Whirlydick. When asked what it took to learn, Jamie tells us he took a few attempts at the trick over the summer, but then decided to get serious the last couple of days intent on landing it.  His practice came with a few epic falls, but in the end success came behind the SE.  
Congrats Jamie!  We are so proud of you!
