Several months ago many people in our industry were upset about the lack of competitions for juniors and professional women. Some of those people approached our Nautique team directly and asked for help. In one particularly powerful Facebook message I received a note from a seven year old girl who asked if I would step in and help!
At Nautique we are all about family and we were happy to consider what we could do to support our industry through events that included the pro’s (both men and women) and amateurs. In the end we decided to create the Nautique Wake Series.
The final event of the Nautique Wake Series (the Nautique Wake Open) was held this past weekend at the Orlando Watersports Complex. Athletes (both pro and amateur, women and men) traveled from around the world to participate and it was a great weekend!
Saturday night we were able to honor many of the kids that participated at an awards banquet and it was fun to see them and their parents enjoying an evening that celebrated a lot of hard work. The kids came up to get their awards and the parents took pics and we all had a wonderful time!
Sunday were the finals for the wakeskaters,the junior pro men, pro men and women wakeboarders so it was both an exciting and tense day. The competition (and weather) was heated and the crowds saw the best wakeboarding in the world behind the boat that produces the best wake in the world, the Super Air Nautique G-Series. After the competition we crowned both the winners of the inaugural Nautique Wake Open and the overall winners of the Nautique Wake Series.
One particularly fun moment for me was being able to present Nautique Team athlete Meagan Ethell with the overall Nautique Wake Series trophy and champion’s check of $10,000. I could not be happier for Meagan so it was the most fun I have had signing a big check!
At Nautique we are committed to our industry and the families who are the foundation of all we do. We love providing competitions for people to test their skills but even more we enjoy providing opportunities for families and friendships to grow stronger.
Our team is already looking forward to next year’s wake season!
The world’s best ski boat; the world’s best wake boat; and a company that cares!
