Orlando, Fla. — The Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour will make five stops around the United States and Canada, including Texas, North Carolina, Washington, Alberta and Indiana. The expanded tour plays host to five new cities and venues around North America.
The 2016 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour will take place at the following locations:
- Dallas/Fort Worth, TX — May 7, 2016
- Mooresville, NC — June 18, 2016, at Stumpy Creek, Lake Norman
- Monroe, WA — July 9, 2016, at Lake Tye
- Edmonton, Alberta, CAN — July 23, 2016, at Shalom Park
- Indianapolis, IN — August 6, 2016, at Precedent Office Park
“This is a fresh lineup of cities that strikes the perfect balance of great water conditions for the pros, venues with unprecedented fan accessibility, and hotbed markets for wakeboarding. This is the strongest lineup in years,” said Rick Tinker, President of Skier’s Choice, makers of Supra.
The first stop of the 2016 season will visit the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, area. The metro area plays host to a hotbed of wake fans.
Lake Norman, near Charlotte, NC, in Mooresville, is one of the most active and largest wakeboarding lakes in the nation and is sure to attract a huge flotilla of spectator boats. Boaters can join the party flotilla along with hundreds of other wakeboats, runabouts, pontoons and party barges that line the competition course.
Lake Tye in Monroe, WA, is located in the heart of the wakeboard manufacturing industry near Seattle. Visited a few years back, the fans in the northwest are plentiful and a huge turnout is expected with the return of the Pro Wakeboard Tour in the area.
Located a few miles south of Edmonton, Alberta, CAN, lies Shalom Park — a man-made, world class water sports site nestled in the North Saskatchewan River Valley. This is the first time in over a decade that the PWT will venture back into Canada.
The Supra Boats PWT Series Championships visits Indianapolis, IN, for the final stop of the tour at Precedent Office Park. The park boasts a world class 38-acre lake in the heart of the complex. After a five-year hiatus, the PWT is returning to one of the most revered venues in the sport.
The official towboat for the 2016 tour will be the all-new Supra SA550 because of its clean, consistent and massive wakes. The Supra Boats’ wakes push pros to new levels while preserving strict handling and a balanced ride for the driver and judges in the boat. The 2016 Supra Boats are powered with the high-torque ROUSH charged 6.2L Ford Raptor Engine by Indmar.
