2021 Pro Wakeboard Tour Finals

Guenther Oka Comes in First at the Final Stop of the 2021 Pro Wakeboard Tour Series

On the last stop of the annual Pro Wakeboard Tour series at Lake Lanier in Atlanta, Ga., Liquid Force rider Guenther Oka crushed the competition with a nearly-perfect run to secure the top spot. His first run of the final heat displayed an incredible line in otherwise rough conditions, and his second run showed off an almost perfect score, securing the gold on the podium. Close behind was Ronix rider Nic Rapa in second place, who proved to be the most consistent competitor throughout the tour. Sam Brown rounded out the podium, proving his skill in the challenging water conditions with his experience learning to wakeboard in the salt waters of Australia.

The final Pro Wakeboard Tour event of the season, the Team Challenge, will take place as part of Surf Expo in Orlando, Fla., replacing this year’s Wake Awards. The event will be an after party of sorts to celebrate the incredible year of riding and will pit each board brand against each other to see which brand claims to have the best team and to take the $30k prize home. Teams will consist of three riders, one woman and two men – two riders will complete two three-trick passes and the other rider will complete the best of two double ups. The overall top score will win the cash prize. Invited brands include Liquid Force, Connelly, Ronix, Hyperlite, Slingshot, O’Brien and a wild card team. The Team Challenge is going down at Buena Vista Water Sports on Sept. 9.
