Cory Teunissen has been named "Rookie of the Year" of the 2015 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour.

The wakeboarder from Brisbane, Queensland finished the circuit in the runner-up position behind fellow Australian rider Harley Clifford.

With an outstanding performance throughout the Tour, Cory Teunissen managed to win the competition held at Traxler Park, in Janesville and even landed the first-ever wake-to-wake 1080 in a pro contest.

"Cory's passion for the sport, drive to excel, and amazing athleticism led him to be Rookie of the Year," explains Chris Bischoff, tournament director.

"He incessantly pushes himself forward and heats up the competition among fellow pro athletes in the industry. This season showed he deserved it, and we're excited to see what is to come next year."

Cory Teunissen's dream season is just the beginning of a long winning journey. In 2014, he had already won the Junior Pro Men division.

August 3, 2016, was a day that surfers should never forget. For the first time in its long history, surfing was confirmed in the Olympic Games.
