BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas set the scene for an exciting week of riding that saw three Team Nautique athletes on top of the podium in five different divisions. Hosting both the Wake Park and Wakeboard Nationals, the excitement was spread across the world-class facility with the Super Air Nautique G23 and G21 towing riders on the purpose built boat lake and the amazing features on the cable lake delivering non-stop action.
In her first ever wakeboard competition, Team Nautique skier and Women’s World Trick Record holder Erika Lang became the Jr. Women’s Wakeboard National Champion. Riding behind the Super Air Nautique G21, Erika set herself apart going huge with clean tricks that proved she will be a force to be reckoned with in wakeboarding.
“Competing at Wakeboard Nationals was one of the best experiences of my life! Not only was I able to win my first wakeboard contest ever, I was also able to compete behind the best boat in the industry! The Nautique G21’s wakes are super poppy and boosted me high in the air allowing me to easily perform all of my tricks! I look forward to also competing at the Nautique Wake Open.” – Erika Lang
In women’s pro, Nautique’s Meagan Ethell stayed busy competing in three divisions taking the podium with a third place finish behind the boat, a first place finish in Wake Park, and also took third place in the Pro Women Features Wake Park discipline.
“I had so much fun at this years nationals, being able to compete in both cable and boat was my favorite part. The wake behind the G23 was so big and clean! Thank you Nautique for putting on another awesome event!” – Meagan Ethell
In the pro men’s discipline Nautique riders Bob Soven, Danny Harf, and Noah Flegel battled through the qualifying rounds to make it into Sunday’s finals to cap off the weekend. It was Bob with a run that included everything from technical rail hits and big hammers to crowd pleasers and soul carves that landed him in third place on the podium, but first in the hearts of the fans.
“Nationals was a great event at BSR with perfect conditions which allowed for one of the heaviest finals I’ve ever been a part of. I was stoked to come out on the podium and I’m looking forward to the next Nautique event in Canada!” – Bob Soven
