Shaun Murray’s New Super Air Nautique 230

Posted by admin

   Shaun Murray came by Nautique Headquarters this past week to pick up his brand new Nautique 230. Shaun was so excited that he came in early to help put the finishing touches on his boat and personally thanked every person that had a hand in building it.

      “The amount of minds, hands and hearts involved in making the worlds best wakeboard boat is amazing and I want to make sure that everyone knows they are appreciated by the riders here at Nautique.  I am so happy with my 230!” said Murray.

Nautique Company Picnic

Posted by admin

     This past weekend Nautique athlete’s Shaun Murray, Clementine Lucine, Jimmy LaRiche, and Jeff Mckee all came out to our company picnic for a day of fun, food, and friends. Nautique employees and their families got the chance to go out on the water with the athletes on their boats and see what the boats they build can really do. For some of the kids, it was their first time on the water in a Nautique and the smiles and excitement on their faces were priceless. Here are some photos from the action.Lunch!

Downtime with Robert Soven

Posted by admin

bob-reading

Last season Team Nautique rider Robert “Bob” Soven dominated the Jr. Pro Men Division winning the Air Nautique WWA Nationals and all five stops of the Pro Wakeboard tour. He then went on to become the youngest person to ever land a 1080. Since then he has traveled all over the world, invented two new tricks, and has more followers on twitter than anyone I know. All of this, and he is still in high school. We caught up with Bob during some rare down time at his house in Longwood FL, to talk about everything that’s going on with him and his plans for the 2010 season.

Nautique: Thanks for having us over Bob.

Bob: It’s really no problem at all. On rainy down days you can usually find me here in my study enjoying the fine arts and sipping on glasses of Monster. Make yourselves comfortable.

Nautique: We heard you just got back from a trip to Australia and Fiji. How was that?

Bob: Australia was alright but nothing in life could have prepared me for Fiji. It was amazing! Myself and the whole Body Glove Crew had an amazing time.

Nautique: You’re going into your first year competing in the Pro Men’s Division. How is that going to be different and what are you doing to prepare for the season?

Bob: The professional wakeboarder starts off the water. I have been working really hard at trying to become cooler. I’ve started to grow my hair out and I also take opportunities like today to focus on becoming a more mature and sophisticated gentleman.

Nautique: What is it like to have to juggle high school and your wakeboarding career?

Bob: High School Shmischool, I have it all pretty much balanced between girls at home and on the road.

Nautique: You’ve already landed the 1080 and invented the “Trifecta” as well as the “Billion dollar baby”, is there anything new that you’re working on that we can expect to see in the near future?

Bob: Yes actually. I am going to start making my own music so that I can just name my own songs instead of continuing to ruin the names of wakeboard tricks forever.

Nautique: What does your training regimen look like?

Bob: I do a lot of yoga and thumb exercises because I feel that it is key to good wakeboarding. Other than that I ride behind my Nautique 230 everyday. I feel that riding behind the best and most classy boat on the water gives me the edge I need to be ahead of the competition.

Nautique: Thanks for having us Bob. Is there anything else you would like people to know before we leave?

Bob: Yes, I have some things I would like to address. I like Brunettes because they are better girlfriends and my favorite Flower is the Tulip. Roses are played out.
