The third round of the Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour (PWT) is this weekend at Ford Lake Park in Ypsilanti, Mich., on Saturday, July 13. The season recently reached its halfway point, making the event at Ford Lake paramount in the chase for the 2019 title in both the Wakeboard and Wakesurf classes. The action begins on the water at 9:30 a.m., with Finals in both classes set for approximately 2:15 p.m.
Team Supra rider Nic Rapa leads the Wakeboard standings, heading into the inaugural event in Ypsilanti. The Australian won the season-opener in Texas in May, while fellow Aussie Cory Teunissen stood on top of the podium in Utah last month. Rapa holds a 15-point leader over Teunissen as the pair battles for the championship.
In Wakesurf, Team Supra rider Sean Silveira has won both of the events held thus far in 2019. The native of Orlando, Fla., opened the season with a win in May. Silveira followed that up with a victory in Round Two last month and holds a 20-point lead over fellow Team Supra athlete Parker Payne in the series standings.
Ford Lake was formed in 1932 when Henry Ford completed a dam over the Huron River to supply hydroelectric power to one of his plants. The spacious lake covers 958 acres and is surrounded by the six-park Ford Lake Park System, which will provide fans of the Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour plenty of great viewing spots.
The Supra Boats SA550 returns as the official towboat for the 2019 tour. Known for its clean, consistent and controlled wakes, the SA550 provides a balanced ride, precise handling, and the platform to push athletes to the next level.
The event from Ypsilanti will also be live-streamed for wake sports fans around the globe to experience in real-time on Saturday, July 13 from Ford Lake Park. The live stream will be hosted on Wakeboarding’s Facebook page (Wakeboarding Magazine) from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
