Orlando, FL (September 7, 2018) – The World Wake Association (WWA) and Nautique Boat Company are excited to announce the 2019 Nautique Wake Series, set to include four of the world’s most respected WWA Wakeboard World Series (WBWS) event stops. The world’s top professional athletes continue to return to this series as a career-defining platform to showcase progression and define themselves as the sport’s elite. A dedication to rider development and a family-friendly environment has made the Nautique Wake Series home to athletes competing in all WWA professional and amateur divisions, continuing a tradition that always puts riders first. Towed exclusively behind the 5X Wakeboard Boat of the Year, the Super Air Nautique G23, each season the Nautique Wake Series delivers the highest level of wakeboarding competition.
“Each year the Nautique Wake Series brings everyone in wakeboarding together behind the world’s best boat, making each stop a world-class event and family reunion combined. After recently claiming the overall title at the final stop in Japan, I’m ready to train hard and go after the title again in 2019. I am excited for another year of seeing everyone from the pros to the amateurs keep pushing the sport and their own athletic abilities,” said Nautique Athlete and defending Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Champion, Meagan Ethell.
