The 2016 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour (SBPWT) will be contested in five new US cities.
The circuit is growing the series from four stops last season, to five stops in 2016. Harley Clifford, winner of the 2015 SBPWT, will return to defend his title, alongside Cory Teunissen, Daniel Powers, Austin Hair, and many more.
