Orlando, FL (July 15, 2015) – Once again, an athlete shatters boundaries behind the Super Air Nautique G23. Professional wakeboarder Mike Dowdy landed the world’s first ever wake-to-wake 1260. Dowdy and the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23 make the perfect pair as he pushes the sport behind the only boat on the water pulling riders to feats never before done.

“The level of riding is insane with the G23 making the biggest, best shaped wake in the industry. It’s allowed me to push myself, and the sport to new places with tricks now being landed that everyone thought to be impossible before the Nautique G23 was introduced,” said Mike Dowdy.

Dowdy is known for progression behind the Super Air Nautique G23 with his own mind blowing and inventive versions of tricks, multiple double flip variations, and now the first ever 1260 landed purely wake-to-wake.

“Seeing what riders like Mike Dowdy have been able to accomplish behind the Super Air Nautique G23 has been amazing,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “We created the G-series to push boundaries of wakeboarding and we are still in awe of the possibilities created by these game-changing boats. Congratulations Mike!”
