Nic Rapa and Sean Silveira have taken out the second event of the 2018 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour (PWT), held at Lake Allatoona's Dallas Landing Park, in Acworth, Georgia.
The final round featured some of the most intense competition the PWT has ever seen, and given the tight-knit races of the past, that's saying something.
The podium was separated by a mere 1.67 points, while the difference between first and second was only a half point! It was a tough decision between Cory Teunissen and Nic Rapa's, runs but the judges awarded Rapa the top spot.
