Orlando, Fla. – The MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour presented by Rockstar, the largest and most storied professional wakeboarding circuit in the world, has announced its schedule for the upcoming 2013 season. The Tour will visit five cities throughout the United States, including three brand new venues in North Carolina, California and Michigan.
The 2013 season kicks off May 18 at Dallas Landing Park in Acworth, Ga., continues to Mooresville, NC on June 1, heads to Mossdale, Ca. on June 29, stops in Monroe, Wash. on July 13 and finishes up in Grand Rapids, Mich. on Aug. 24.
"We worked hard with MasterCraft to find some great new venues with awesome water conditions for 2013, so we couldn’t be more excited for the upcoming Pro Tour to kickoff," said Chris Bischoff, MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour competition director. "The riders have been training all off-season to go bigger than ever off the X-Star’s huge wake and I think we could see a whole new bag of tricks unleashed on tour this year."
Last season, Harley Clifford narrowly edged out Phillip Soven to claim the Pro Tour title. The two will look to renew their rivalry beginning in Acworth, but also face stiff competition from a very talented pool of riders including Rusty Malinoski, Steel Lafferty and Dean Smith. The athletes accumulate points at each stop based on their placement in each contest. The highest total points-earner at the end of the five-event season will be crowned the Pro Tour champion.
Ticket’s for all MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour stops 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).
