spectators watch wakeboarder from boats on the lake

Spectators watch from the water during the ProWake Tour held in late August.

The finale of the ProWake Tour Powered by Supra Boats brought together nearly three dozen of the world’s top wake boarders and wake surfers last month at Lake Lanier Olympic Park.

Spectators on land and on the water enjoyed a bonus: the Moxie Pro Women’s Series wakeboard competition, taking place at the same time.

“This was an amazing venue for our finals,” said Chris Bischoff, director of operations for the tour. “Not only did we have nearly 1,000 spectators who came by land and filled the seats, we had about 50 boats come and anchor out to watch the competition.”

Bischoff likened the venue to competition in a stadium on the water.

“With fans in the stands and boats anchored out, people could see the action from either side of the course,” Bischoff said. “It was enjoyable for everyone who attended.”
