The Colony, TX. (May 9, 2015) — The Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour at Stewart Creek Park opened up its second and final day of competition to strong winds and heavy rains, temporary stifling the extreme riding of the world class athletes here to win bragging rights, podium spots and the largest purse in tour history. Australia’s Harley Clifford ultimately won the main event, Men’s Professional Wakeboarding, landing a heelside 900.

The gigantic wakes of the Supra Boats’ SE550 launched riders into the air, making competition extra intense.  The Men’s Professional Wakeboarding division held its semi-finals early in the afternoon, with six heats consisting of three riders throwing down on the course.   Ultimately, of the six heats, the top rider from each heat would move onto the final round.  Tony Iacconi (AUS), Cory Teunissen (AUS), Phillip Soven (USA), Noah Flegel (USA), Rusty Malinoski (CDN) and Harley Clifford (AUS) moved on.

The final heat was fierce and everyone wanted a top spot.  Harley Clifford sealed the deal with a heelside 900 earning him a score of 95.65, to edge out Supra Boats team rider, Cory Teunissen, with a 93.67.   In third place was Phillip Soven with a score of 88.33.

Clifford killed it with a toeside 900, backside 540, and a front mobe 540.  “I am really stoked on that win,” said Clifford.  “It was one of the most gratifying wins I’ve ever had.  Cory and Phil both killed it.  I stuck my tricks and won – feels good.”

Pro Wakesurfers hit the water for the second day in a row with Keenan Flegel (USA), finishing in first place with 100.50 points, followed by younger brother, Noah Flegel (USA) with 86.00 points and Dallas native, Parker Payne (USA), in third place with 85.50 points.

“I started out a little rough,” said Keenan Flegel.  “I fell on a few tricks that I normally don’t fall on.  My first pass I did a frontside shove, and my second pass I landed a passion pop.  It’s really awesome to be here wakesurfing at the pro tour and I’m pumped for my win.”

Pro Skim boarders finished up the day with one heat of six riders.  Final results would leave it as Keenan Flegel in first, Noah Flegel in second and Aaron Witherell in third, respectively.
