THE AIR NAUTIQUE WAKE GAMES RETURNS TO ORLANDO FOR THE THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR
Nautique will once again sponsor the Air Nautique Wake Games. For the third year in a row, this one-of-a-kind event will be held at the Orlando Watersports Complex from April 23-26 and will exclusively use the high performance, competition caliber Super Air Nautique 210 and 230 models.
Officially kicking off the professional wakeboarding season, the Air Nautique Wake Games is a unique experience in that pro and amateur riders alike are able to compete individually in their disciplines as well as come together to form teams that vie for a cash prize and the 2009 team title.
At the 2008 Wake Games, Team Murray, led by Nautique pro rider Shaun Murray, won the team competition; this marked the second year in a row that Team Murray took the first place title. This year, team riders Shaun Murray, J.D. Webb, Shawn Watson and Aaron Rathy will represent Nautique as captains during the team competition. These three along with many other Nautique athletes will compete against each other along with top riders from around the world.
“The entire Nautique team is excited to begin the 2009 wakeboarding season with one of the leading competitions of the year,” stated Correct Craft President/CEO Bill Yeargin. “The Wake Games is an interactive event blending a unique combination of individual and team competition that is truly one-of-a-kind and fun for the entire family.”
