Supra Boats @Supra_Boats SA550s floating front row for the action, Battle Falls lived up to the excitement as this weekend’s amazing event proved that wakeskating is consistently one-upping itself. Team Supra Boats Reed Hansen took home the Mens Wakeskate gold with Cassie Scott winning the Womens Divisoin, Clemént Depremonville getting Best Trick and Andrew Pastura earning The Wakeskate Tour Overall prize. The Wakeskate Tour’s 2013 season has been a growing success and it’s safe to say this tour has made a lasting impression on the industry. We're throwing Supra congratulations to Reed and all of the wakeskate winners from Battle Falls! Check out this teaser video for the Wakeskate Tour Rockstar Battle Falls edit.
Riders from all over the world – France, South Africa, Australia,
Switzerland, Canada, England, United States – flocked to the Hansen’s
central Florida oasis to compete in the last stop of the season for The
Wakeskate Tour. Spectators, local and feral, enjoyed the view from the
Zeal Optics halfpipe and stayed cool at the Ronix Pool Party, both of
which will certainly be up for consideration in future events.
The up-&-back setup at Battle Falls, decked with new metal rails,
accompanied by the System 2.0 brought on a wide array of competitors
through the qualifying rounds on Friday, making for loaded heats in
Saturday’s quarter-finals and semi-finals. Each round raised the bar as
riders focused on perfecting their most technical lines for the judges.
Austin Pastura rode amazing all day, securing him a spot on the podium
with his signature, finishing in 3rd place. Just barely edging him out
was Andrew Pastura, who with this 2nd place finish locked down his
second overall title as The Wakeskate Tour champion. The story of the
day was Reed Hansen showing consistency is the name of the game,
dominating his way through quarters and semis. In the six man
super-finals, Reed showed how diverse and technical he can wakeskate by
cleanly stomping rare flip tricks up the chute, getting gnarly on the
new rails, & nailing big moves down the drop. His unique prowess
paved the way to being Battle Falls champion two years in a row.
On behalf of The Wakeskate Tour, we’d like to thank the Hansens,
Rockstar Energy, Fox Wake, Ronix Wake, Supra Boats, Zeal Optics, Sesitec
System 2.0, Chick-Fil-A, and every rider and spectator who came out to
support the 2013 season of The Wakeskate Tour. We look forward to the
future of the tour and the future of wakeskating. Thank you.
