It was an exciting weekend in Cincinnati as Nautique once again hosted the WWA Wakeboard National Championships and showed off the all-new Super Air Nautique 210 and 230!
At Nautique family is important to us, and, if there was one thing on display at the Nautique Nationals this past weekend it was family. All age groups were competing for a National Championship and families were everywhere. It was most evident at the Nautique Nationals banquet on Saturday night. It was so much fun to watch all the kids come up and reap the reward of their hard work and proud parents taking pictures. I spoke to many, many, parents about how boating is keeping their families strong and I could not have been happier. I know boating was important while my daughters were growing up and it is fun to see another generation having the same experiences.
There was a new dimension to the Nautique Nationals this year as we combined the boat and cable events into one. As many people know, our team at Nautique has embraced cable as complementary to what we are trying to do in the boat business. We have demonstrated our commitment to cable by purchasing Orlando Watersports Complex and entering alliances with McCormicks in Tampa and BSR in Texas. We also included a cable component to the Nautique Wake Games which is held in the Spring. At Nautique we do not see cable as threatening, we see it as a great way to bring people into our sports; in fact, be watching for some more announcements soon related to our team and cable!
Also, at the Nautique Nationals we introduced the world to our new Super Air Nautique 210 and 230. Lots of people saw the boats and the wakeskaters even got to compete behind the new Super Air Nautique 210. The comments were overwhelmingly positive and we know these new boats will be hits for years to come!
Finally, the boat competition was amazing. The Super Air Nautique G23 threw off a wake that everyone has come to expect from this incredible boat. Athlete after athlete told me how much they enjoyed competing behind the G23!
It was a great weekend to showcase who we are at Nautique:
If you are already part of the Nautique family you know how much fun it is. If you are not yet part of our family we encourage you to check out your local Nautique dealer; they can be found here.
- Family is a core value for us. We know how important it is and we were thrilled to see many, many families competing and watching.
- We are committed to supporting cable and using it to introduce new people to our sport.
- We are committed to developing the world’s best product and that commitment was clearly on display this weekend.
- We are committed to providing opportunities for people to enjoy the competitive side of our sport all over the world. In fact as the Nautique Nationals were happening in Ohio we had another group of our team in Colombia where Nautique was the boat of the 2013 World Games!
The world’s best ski boat; the world’s best wake boat; and, a company that cares!
Enjoy the Nautique life!
