Harley and Nicola Win PWT Titles in Ft. Worth

In front of a crowd of thousands, the final day of the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour concluded with an action packed day of riding from the sport's top athletes. The top performance of the day came from Harley Clifford, who dazzled the spectators at Texas MasterCraft by landing the first ever wake-to-wake double flip in a contest to claim first place in the Men's Pro division.

Giving Clifford a run for his money were, Phillip Soven and Rusty Malinoski, who also put in inspired efforts to claim second and third place respectively and keep pace in the season standings race.

"So much sick riding went down today, I'm excited to come away with the win," said Clifford. "The whole event was great and I can't wait for Branson next week."

The Women's pro division is also shaping up to be a tight race this season. In a highly competitive final heat, Nicola Butler went just a little bigger than the rest of the field to claim victory. Solid runs also came from Meagan Ethell and Amber Wing who join Butler on the podium.

The ultra-competitive MasterCraft Junior Pro Tour gave the crowd a glimpse of the future of the sport and also determined a winner today. Mike Dowdy won his second consecutive Overton's Junior Pro Series event by edging out Massi Piffaretti with a final round score of 91.50.

Following the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour divisional heats, fans were treated to the jaw-dropping Sony Big Air Contest. Being pulled behind the new XStar, the top Men's Pro athletes stuck gravity-defying tricks behind the new gen XStar that are rarely pulled off in a traditional contest setting. The performance of the event came from Chad Sharpe who took first place.
