Nautique fans enjoying their boat in Paraguay!

Traveling through South America is always energizing and over the past few years I have been privileged to visit most of the countries there. The continent has an excitement that is captivating and contagious. The South American economies are doing well, the people are lively and there is a strong optimism about the future. It is a fun place to visit!

And, I am happy to report, Nautique is the boat of choice on the continent. All over South America people enjoy skiing and wake sports behind our incredible Nautique boats.

This past week our South American distributor, Henrik, and I visited a ski school in Uruguay that uses a Ski Nautique. Tomas, who owns and runs the ski school, does a great job training athletes from all over South American. Thomas told me his 2008 Ski Nautique has over 5,000 hours on it with absolutely no issues. Just a short distance from the Ski School is our new Nautique dealer, Bermudez Nautica who will be a great representative of our brand in Uruguay.

Next we traveled to Paraguay where I met some of the most loyal Nautique enthusiasts on the planet! There is a ton of wakeboarding in Paraguay and the athletes of that country only want to be towed by the best boat so, of course, they choose Nautique. It was fun to spend the day with them and three Nautique boats on the Paraguay River! Carlos and Afara do a great job representing Nautique in their country.

After Paraguay we traveled to Ecuador and met with Fabrizio, President of the Ecuador Waterski and Wakeboard Federation. The Federation recently hosted the South American Beach Games in their country and was proud to pull the watersports events with two new Nautique boats.

Finally, we had an awesome Nautique video shoot with Juliana from Nautique Brazil, wakeboarding legend Shawn Watson, and our South American Nautique distributor, Henrik Laursen. The weather was perfect and everyone had a blast behind the Nautique boats in Brazil. I can’t wait to see the video, I am certain it will be great.

One thing that is for sure, people in South America, as well as every other continent, demand the best when it comes to their watersports boat. That is why Nautique is the leading brand in the USA and in over 50 other countries around the world.

If you are not yet part of the worldwide Nautique family we hope you will join the fun. Contact the Nautique dealer nearest you today. You can find them here.

Enjoy the Nautique life!
