The Malibu Evolution Pro series enters its third season in delivering the pinnacle of wakeboard competition to amazing locations around the world. As the global culture of our sport continues to grow, these events introduce wakeboarding to new audiences on a first-class platform with athletes competing for $175,000 in overall series prize money.
“I’m pumped for every stop of this year’s Malibu Evolution Pro Series. We’re going to some new, amazing places and I’m especially stoked to see everyone crush it behind the M235 with the level of riding going down right now. It’s going to be insane,” said Malibu Pro rider Oliver Derome.
Stop one heads to Loudon, TN on July 7-8 for the Malibu Factory Smoky Mountain Pro. Stop two will travel to beautiful Vienna, Austria September 1-3 for the Vienna Pro which will include Pro Wakesurf divisions. Stop three caps off the series in Shigha, Japan at the Biwa Pro on September 15-17.
“We are thrilled to once again partner with The WWA for this year’s Evolution Pro Series,” said Malibu Boats CEO Jack Springer. “Being able to treat world-renowned wakeboard and wakesurf athletes with the class and comfort they deserve and then to watch them compete in some of the world’s most beautiful venues is something I look forward to every year. This year is incredibly special! Not only because we will be visiting phenomenal venues, but also because we’ll be bringing this event to our world headquarters in Loudon, TN., just outside of Knoxville. Kicking this event off right here at home before traveling to Austria and Japan will make for one of the best and most unique event series to date.”
