JL Audio Named Gold-Level Sponsor for 2019 Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour

MIRAMAR, FL (05.16.2019) – JL Audio will be teaming up with Supra Boats for the fifth year in a row to sponsor the annual Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour. Supra Boats’ SA550, featuring a wave pounding JL Audio sound system and M6 speakers, will serve as the official tow boat for the tour in 2019.

Known for being one of the most dominant professional wakeboarding circuits in the world, pro athletes from all over the world come out for the four-stop tour to compete. In addition to Wakeboarding, the Supra Boats Pro Wakeboard Tour brings one of the hottest up-and-coming sports in North America to each venue – wakesurfing. The 2019 season will open with a debut event at August Lakes in Katy, Texas, (near Houston) May 17-18.

JL Audio will be on-site at all four stops of the 2019 PWT rocking a 400 square-foot booth where it will be showcasing how the brand is redefining the capabilities of marine audio systems with awesome displays and demonstrations of its latest marine audio source units, speakers and amplifier – including the new M6 speaker line. Additionally, the company will be hosting giveaways of its latest products for PWT attendees.

“At heart, we at JL Audio are boating and watersports enthusiasts. Nothing gets our blood pumping quite like being out on the water in an awesome boat, except maybe being towed behind said boat and utilizing its wake to pull off physics-defying stunts,” said Ora Freeman, National Sales Manager, OEM Division at JL Audio. “As Supra Boats’ exclusive audio partner, we are thrilled to celebrate our fifth year as a gold-level sponsor of the PWT. We look forward to providing attendees with fun activities and the ability to experience our industry-leading line of marine audio products in their natural environment.”
