Supra Boats and Bonnier Corp.’s Events & Entertainment Group has created the inaugural Supra Boats Pro Wakesurf Tour.

The announcement was made by Rick Tinker, president of Skier’s Choice, the builder of Supra Boats.

The new three-stop, $30,000 purse series will take place at The Colony, Texas (in the Dallas area), Acworth, Ga. (in the Atlanta area), and Lathrop, Calif., (in the Sacramento area) in conjunction with the Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour.

“Supra Boats and the family here at Skier’s Choice is pleased to announce the brand new, first-ever Pro Wakesurf Tour, in conjunction with the Pro Wakeboard Tour,” Tinker said in a statement. “Having the best pro men’s athletes in two competition disciplines like surf and skim, in addition to wakeboarding at one epic event, is a tremendous undertaking. We’re thrilled to see the best riding to date behind the massive wakes that the SE550 produces.”

"I am super-excited to be able to ride in the first ever Pro Wakesurf Tour," said Trevor Miller, pro wakesurfer and Supra Boats Team rider.

"Riding at the Pro Tour will put competitive wakesurfing in front of more people than ever before and will be the perfect platform to showcase the amazing athleticism that goes on at this level of wakesurfing. I could not think of a better boat to pull this event than the new SE550. I have seen firsthand 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.”
