Pro Wakeboard TourMonroe, Wa. – Wakeboarding’s top athletes treated fans in the Pacific Northwest to an impressive display of competitive riding during the first day of the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour presented by Rockstar Energy Drink in Monroe. With weather cooperating throughout the day, neck-to-neck heats were put in by the Pro Men, Pro Women and Junior Pro Men.
 
Keeping the best rivalry in wakeboarding alive, Harley Clifford and Phil Soven once again brought their A-game today. Both riders put in stellar performances that coupled massive airs with highly-technical rail maneuvers and will advance to tomorrow’s elimination rounds. Also, with his eye on victory at Lake Tye, Rusty Malinoski put together an ultra-progressive run to win his heat and reserve a spot in the semifinals.
 
The pro women came to Monroe on a mission as well. Raimi Merritt gave one of the runs of the day, posting a division-high 86.67 and looks to be a favorite in tomorrow’s finals. Meagan Ethell also showcased some world-class riding posting a heat winning score of 86.67 and will definitely be a factor in the finals.
 
“It’s always great to bring the Tour to the west coast,” said Chris Bischoff, contest director. “Monroe is a great venue and the fans saw some really progressive riding in all of the divisions today.”
 
The Junior Pro Men have been giving next-level performances all season long and today was no different. Mike Dowdy kept his season-long dominance going, posting a day one high-score of 98.00. Jacob Valdez matched Dowdy’s performance also posting a 98.00, both riders will be top contenders in tomorrow’s elimination rounds.
