SUNSET SURFING

Posted by admin

I am sure you will agree with me that after a hard day at work, nothing beats taking your boat out for a sunset surf session.  It is relaxing and so much fun!  

Check out the video of Brandon Thomas, Jeff McKee and Scott Byerly at Scott’s house, taking full advantage of the great wake behind the 210.  

It is a busy time of the year right now with the Christmas Holidays, but hopefully you can make some time to take out your friends or family in the boat as well.  

From everyone at Team Nautique, we hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

New Team Nautique Member – Adam Wensink

Posted by admin

From Sales Rep to Team Nautique member, Adam Wensink does it all. It makes total sense to officially bring Adam onto the team as he is already promoting Nautique through his job as a Nautique Sales Rep for the Midwest region: doing boat shows, demos and clinics and hitting the US Pro Wakeboard Tour as an athlete.

Adam is a phenomenal person both on and off the water. If you haven’t had the chance to see him ride, then CHECK OUT his video below! He is among the top 20 wakeboarders in the world both on the rails and on the wake. He’s an explosive rider, the kind of rider that makes you want to go out and ride too.

Welcome to the team Adam!

Meet Robert “Bob” Soven – New Team Nautique Rider

Posted by admin

Robert Soven has officially joined the family at Nautique!  Everyone on the team is really excited to have him be a part of an already all-star roster of athletes.  Robert adds so much to Team Nautique, both as a rider and as a person.   Click on the image below to go directly to Robert’s athlete profile.

I caught up with Robert last week and asked him a few questions about becoming a Nautique athlete and here’s a little taste of Robert “Ballin Bob” Soven’s personality:

How does it feel to be sponsored by Nautique? Being sponsored by Nautique feels….. happy, fun, extreme, and amazing. Those are just some adjectives describing my feelings for my newest sponsor Nautique.

What is it like being on the same team with some of the best pros? I have grown up in the sport so I have been around all the guys my whole life. But it is cool to finally call myself teammates with them. Also, it’s already been a very humbling experience; I would like for my career to get to their levels someday.

What is your favorite thing about joining Team Nautique? The boat!!!

What does Phillip (you’re older brother) think about you joining the team? In all honesty he thinks it’s great for my career and breaking out of his shadow. I feel some jealousy tensions between us now but its all good.

What are you goals for the 2009 season? 2009 – I would like to sweep the whole season, but with all the super talent in Jr. Men’s right now, it’s almost impossible. I would be happy with winning half the contests, and having podium finishes in most of them.

Tell me about your new boat? She is a black and yellow 230 — a very pretty boat. The wake is ridiculous; I just put weight in the boat and I am pretty stoked on that. I also have lights underneath; I haven’t got to use them yet but I feel like they will come in handy.

Do you let Phillip ride behind the Nautique? If anybody knows my family you know how loving and caring we are of one another. Of course I let him ride behind my boat, for a small fee.

Any words of advice to young kids your age who want to be sponsored someday? Try and be just like me.

A Day in the Life of Danny Harf

Posted by admin

Behind the scenes…It’s not every day you get to see what happens during the off season of Pro athletes, so we caught up with Danny Harf for a few days.  Sean Kilgus took his HD camera and put together “A Day in the Life of Danny Harf.”  For someone who has landed multiple 1080’s and the first ever 1260, you couldn’t ask for a more down-to-earth, nice guy to be around. 

Danny’s going on his 9th year as a Nautique athlete; since joining the team, he has won 4 X-Games Gold Medals, traveled all over the world and currently holds the “Best Wake Rider of the Year award”, plus numerous other accomplishment too long to mention.

Thanks for checking out the Team Nautique Blog. Hope you enjoy!

Here’s Danny Harf, up close and personal.  Check out his Wrapped, Grab Toe Side Backside 720!!! His first time to land it was for this video!
