Team Supra Boats @SupraBoats made a statement at the Wake Open this past weekend bringing home a first, a third and a second in three of the most competitive classes. Cory Teunissen obliterated the Jr. Pro Men with a difficult spin-filled run that earned him a perfect score. 6-time World Champion Reed Hansen earned 3rd place in Pro Men Wakeskate at the Wake Open and earned 2nd in the overall standings. Supra Boats Sam Brown took second in Boys. Team Supra Boats is definitely primed for the season finale Rockstar WWA World Wakeboard Championships presented by Supra Boats. We are Supra proud of the entire team’s performance and can’t wait to see what they will do behind the all new Supra SE550 making its competitive debut at Worlds September 11-14, 2014.
The Jr. Pro Men’s finals of the Wake Open hit the water early this morning. Six of the top 18-year-old and under riders took full advantage of pristine conditions. Using the Jr. Pro division as a developmental league of wakeboarding, these riders know how to ride. Tons of mobe 5 variations, big spins and unique airs were common amongst the young rippers.
Newcomer, James Loisel set the bar high with a massive toeside backside 540 and KGB 540; however, fell just short of the podium when the ‘guppy’ Jason Soven came knocking at the door. While Soven and Loisel were busy battling it out for the third place spot, Parker Siegele and Cory Teunissen where in a league of their own, each having toeside frontside 900s, heelside frontside 720s and mobe 5s that would even get the pros shaking in their boots. When the results came over, it was Teunissen whom edged out Siegele for the victory.
In the Pro WakeSkate finals, a points race for the Wake Series overall title was closer than any other division. Brian Grubb had 290 points and Reed Hansen with 280 points right behind him coming into the event. With tons of overall prize money on the line, Grubb and Hansen let it all hang out, absolutely gunning for the win. With a few uncanny falls from the points leaders and unreal tricks from, Danny Hampson, the podium would reign: Danny Hampson – first, Brian Grubb – second, and Reed Hansen – third. Grubb would hang onto the top spot of the Wake Series overall title, with Hansen and Hampson in second and third respectfully.
During the Boys division, it was an Australian takeover with Elliot Digney and Sam Brown, very close friends, stealing the show. Elliot stood up both passes and snagged first place landing a tantrum to blind and a handle pass KGB. Sam Brown got second landing a whirly bird and a backside 540 at the end of his second pass.
Congratulations to Cory, Reed and Sam for the amazing results they recorded at the Wake Open. Just goes to show once again that when character counts wins accumulate!
