As we gear up for the 2014 season Team Nautique is poised to continue to push waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakeskating, and wakesurfing to new levels. This past year was incredible with the release of the G-Series line of boats pushing the limits of wake riding and the Ski Nautique 200 continuing to make history with an incredible 3 world records broken behind it this season.
Since the release of the G-Series we have all had a front row seat to the most rapid development in wake-sports ever. While that may seem like a bold statement, the supporting evidence is undeniable. Beginning with the first contest the Super Air Nautique G23 ever pulled seeing two wake-to-wake 1080’s landed for the first time in competition history; we’ve gone from tricks that were considered “Move of the Year” material happening on a rare occasion, to Team Nautique rider Mike Dowdy putting wake-to-wake double flips in his run on a regular basis. In fact, in one season training behind the G23 Dowdy has learned a double backroll, switch double backroll to revert, double roll to blind, backside 1080, and a toeside 1080 all off the wake.
“The Nautique G-Series has helped me take my game to the next level and continues to give me the platform I need to let my imagination on the water run wild. In my opinion riding behind these boats has changed what we are capable of, and the progression we are seeing is simply unreal.” – Mike Dowdy
The Ski Nautique 200 continues to prove its record-breaking capabilities and ability to bring skiers to the top of their game. Since joining the team in 2010 Team Nautique Skier Nate Smith has been nearly unbeatable in competition. This past year he won 6 major tournaments including the Masters and the Water Ski World Championships. Erika Lang also became a World Champion, and set a new World Trick Record of 10,180pts behind the 200. With 15 world records in three disciplines and overall by 7 different skiers since it hit the water…It’s just GOTTA be the boat.
This off-season has been a busy one for Team Nautique and we can assure you that the momentum we have coming into 2014 is set to continue to break boundaries and make history. We are a team of World Record holders, World Champions, and Innovators dedicated to being the best in the world, and bringing you the very best boats in the world.
