The Malibu Evolution Pro Series is designed to showcase the highest level of performance, unifying the men and women of the professional wakeboarding circuit at some of the world’s most elite facilities in the U.S. and internationally.

In the Pro Men’s division, Tony Iaconni (AUS) used spectacular riding to emerge as the overall series champion, followed by Team Malibu rider Massi Piffaretti (ITA) and Mike Dowdy (USA).

NBC Sports will also include action from the Pro Women’s division, which witnessed Nicola Butler (USA) consistently place herself at the front of the field during each stop of the series en route to becoming the top placing overall rider. A hard-fought effort from Team Malibu rider Tarah Mikacich (USA) put her second on the year, just ahead of fellow Malibu teammate Amber Wing (AUS) in third.
