MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour Opens Competition in Monroe

Monroe, WA.– A conglomerate of the world’s best wakeboarders continued the West Coast leg of the 2013 MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour presented by Rockstar with an exciting first day of action in Monroe. Taking to the waters of Lake Tye, the talented field of riders in the Men’s Pro Division and the Overton’s Junior Pro Series, excelled in front of an enthusiastic crowd of Pacific Northwest wakeboard fans. 

Displaying some of the most progressive riding of the day in the sport’s elite Men’s Pro division was Harley Clifford. Dipping deep into his bag of tricks, Clifford gave the judges the well rounded run they were looking for, meshing big stylish airs with highly technical and precise rail riding. Also showing they’re no slouches boosting from the X-Star’s massive wake, Steel Lafferty and Rusty Malinoski catapulted their way to heat winning runs by leveraging their signature big airs to match Clifford’s division high score of 92.00.      

“We were really happy it worked out to bring the Pro Tour back to Monroe again this year,” said Chris Bischoff, competition director. “The venue is perfect for hosting an event of this magnitude and the fans are really passionate about the sport. We saw some great riding today in both divisions and it’s only going to get better with tomorrow’s main event.” 

The future stars competing in the Overton’s Junior Pro series also gave the fans something to talk about. Specifically, a hat trick of perfect runs in consecutive heats from Cory Teunissen, Tony Iacconi and Noah Flegel. The plethora of perfection treated fans to an array of nearly every type of trick imaginable, as the three riders performed well beyond their years, setting the stage for numerous highly anticipated matchups in tomorrow’s final day of action.    

Following the final heat tomorrow fans can stay for one of wakeboarding ‘s most thrilling spectacles, the Polaroid Action Big Air Contest. The event will feature top athletes performing exciting and innovative tricks that aren’t typically attempted in a traditional contest setting.  

Tickets for Saturday’s finals are available online for $7 (46% off the gate price) and include an exclusive Overton’s discount code for online buyers only. Gate prices are: $13 (adult); $5 (ages 6-12); free (ages 5 and under).
