Active Water Sports team rider and native Oregonian Tyler Higham finishes third overall on the 2020 Supra Boats Pro Wake Tour. His second year on the Pro Wake Tour, Higham improved from a sixth place overall finish during his rookie season in 2019.
In a weird and wild contest year where three of the four events were a virtual format, Ty was undoubtedly one of the most talented and consistent athletes on the water. The 21 year old had a podium finish in all four events, including a personal best second place finish in the fourth and final event with a score of 94.

The video clip below was posted by Higham on Instagram after tour stop #4. This is the run that secured a second place finish at the final tour stop and a third place overall finish for the 2020 Pro Wakeboard Tour. Based on his caption, Higham seems stoked on how the season ended!
Wakeboarder Nic Rapa and wakesurfer Sean Silveira are now back-to-back Pro Wake Tour champions, taking home the crown in 2019 and 2020. This year was a close neck and neck race between Nic Rapa and Cory Teunissen, with both earning two tour stop wins. Coming down to the fourth and final event, Rapa squeaked out the overall win with a final heat score of 96.
If you missed the final event that was broadcasted on CBS Sports Network, it will be available on the Pro Wake Tour’s YouTube channel in the next several days.
Congrats Ty on another awesome year! We look forward to watching your continued success.
