Clementine Lucine takes Silver at the Mediterranean Games.

Posted by admin

Team Nautique skier Clementine Lucine placed 2nd at the Mediterranean Games in Mersin, Turkey in the pro slalom event running 2.5 buoys at 38 off behind the Ski Nautique 200. Held once every four years, the Mediterranean Games saw 4,000 athletes in 32 sports from 24 different countries. Towed exclusively behind the Ski Nautique 200, the slalom competition saw 24 competitors from Croatia, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Spain, and Turkey at a beautiful facility near Mersin’s new Olympic Stadium where the opening and closing ceremonies were held.

“The Mediterranean Games is probably the closest I will ever get to the Olympic Games, and it was so much fun! I feel very lucky to have been able to participate and I’m thrilled to have won a medal(which is actually the most beautiful one I’ve ever won) Thanks to a great organizing committee who worked like no one would imagine, they were able to transform a piece of sea into a great slalom course with one of the best judge’s towers on shore. Also a big THANK YOU to the Turkish Nautique dealer for providing us with a new Ski Nautique 200 allowing us to ski behind the best boat in the world! Also, this event allowed us to show people from the other sports and the Olympic committees what waterskiing is about, and they all absolutely loved it! And in return, we also went to cheer for other athletes from other sports! Great memories!”

Bob Soven True to Form.

Posted by admin

Bob Soven continues to turn heads and impress fans with his riding in 2013, his most recent contest run at the Nautique Wake Games gained the admiration of Alliance Wakeboard Magazine editor Bill McCaffray. In the latest issue of Alliance McCaffray writes:

“After watching Bob Soven ride at Wake Games, I’m going to say that Bob may be the most underrated professional wakeboarder on the planet. He may have been mistaken as a reality television star, but he is actually an amazing wakeboarder. That ginger can fly and he makes wakeboarding look really good.” – Bill McCaffray

As you can see Bob is trailblazing his path to becoming one of the most influential riders on the scene. We can all look forward to what the future has to hold for Bob Soven’s riding and his influence on the sport. Bringing it back home, Bob said:

“Having the opportunity to ride the Super Air Nautique G23 Wake in a contest situation allows me the freedom and confidence to do exactly what I want on a wakeboard when it counts. While a small mistake cost me a round at Wake Games, the reactions I received confirmed that I was on the right track. I’m looking forward to the Nautique Wakeboard Nationals coming at the end of July for my opportunity to refine my approach and bring the fans, judges, and wakeboard community what they’ve been asking for.”
