Team Malibu Boats Riders Sweep Pro Wakeboarding in Reno

The final stop of the Pro Wakeboard Tour went off in the greater Reno area of Sparks, Nevada over the weekend. History was made when Rusty Malinoski landed the first 1080 ever in competition, but even this monumental move was not enough to eclipse the winning performance of Team Malibu's Phillip Soven (@PhillipSoven). Soven picked up his second consecutive Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop win this season and collected $1000 along with the Rockstar Best Trick Award for his Backside 720 off of the U.S. Air Force kicker. Team Malibu domination didn't end with Phillip's victory. Pro Female Rider, Dallas Friday also took home gold in her event earning a win at the Reno Stop after a four-year drought in "The Biggest Little City in the World". Dallas made up for her win-less streak in Reno, extended her lead in the Queen of Wake series to 25 points and put herself in prime position to take the five-stop pro tour for female wakeboarders. All that hard work behind the Malibu Wakesetter VLX is paying off for these pro riders. Congratulations Phillip and Dallas! We are so proud of both of you and we continue to cheer your victories.
