The 2018 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour finals brought the world's top wakeboarders to Center Lake in Warsaw, Indiana.
There was a lot at stake. Knowing that, Nic Rapa competed with fractured fibula because he wanted to raise the coveted trophy.
Despite his injury, Rapa made it to to the finals, and earned the respect of fellow competitors and the crowd. The Australian-born rider finished the season runner-up, but has reasons to be proud of himself.
Teunissen ended up imposing his technical skills by throwing down a 1080, toeside double back roll, and double half cab roll to win the event and the season's title.
"I finally did it! What an incredible weekend. It's been a crazy journey so far, and I am speechless. So stoked to say that I won the last stop of the PWT and in doing so I won the Pro Tour title!" expressed Cory Teunissen.
"All the hard work, pain, injuries, sacrifices. It's all worth it. I'm still blown away. Thanks to everyone for their support. You guys have been awesome!"
The longest-running wake circuit also crowned Sean Silveira as the overall pro wakesurfing champion. Wakeskating specialist Reed Hansen made his first pro wakesurf podium.
Tyler Higham finished sixth in the 2018 Pro Wakeboard Tour, and was named "Rookie of the Year."
