In the pro men’s division, Roswell Rider Cory Teunissen (AUS) came out seeking a win. After two double flips and a 1080, a win is exactly he received. Cory took the top podium spot ahead of the comeback kid, Harley Clifford (AUS) who took second, and Nautique rider Mike Dowdy (USA). Nautique team rider Tony Iacconi (AUS) finished right behind Dowdy with a strong 4th place finish. It seems to be another preview of what will come in the next stop of the Supra Pro Wakeboard Tour on June 24th in Mantua, UT which will stream live on Wakeboard Mag’s Facebook page.
Other notable wins at this years Masters were Meagan Ethell (USA) taking the title in the women’s division.
