Orlando, FL (December 20, 2019) – The World Wake Association (WWA) and Nautique Boat Company are proud to announce the return of the Nautique Wake Series for 2020, with four action-packed WWA Wakeboard World Series (WBWS) event stops. Exclusively towed behind the 7X Wakeboard Boat of the Year, the Super Air Nautique G23, this series delivers the highest level of wakeboarding competition providing a career-defining platform for athletes to come 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 an international field of athletes competing in all WWA professional and amateur divisions, continuing a tradition that always puts riders first.
“The Nautique Wake Series is the pinnacle of wake events and I personally find the series of events are the only ones I go to where I can count on the conditions being close to perfect. The wake behind the G23 is always the biggest wake in the industry, paired with Nautique’s selection of the best locations brings together the best riding and most entertaining finals,” commented 2019 Nautique Wake Series Overall Champion Cory Teunissen. “A personal favorite for me is the last event of the year, the Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships. As an athlete you’ve had a full year of battles and have committed yourself to something that is bigger than you and everything comes to an end at this final stop. It’s super exciting to be a part of and I’m super keen to get in to a route again for 2020. Let’s get it!!”
The 2020 Nautique Wake Series will officially kick off on the largest international stage in watersports with stop one at the Nautique Moomba Masters in Melbourne, Australia. Stop two will bring a prestigious selection of riders the opportunity to compete at the legendary Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA for the 61stNautique Masters Waterski & Wakeboard Tournament, presented by GM Marine Engine Technology. Riders will have the opportunity to earn a Masters invitation at the 3rdannual Nautique Masters Wakeboard LCQ held in the heart of wakeboarding in Orlando, Florida.
The third stop of the Nautique Wake Series lands in Waco, Texas at the Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships alongside the Nautique WWA Wake Park National Championships and Nautique USA National Wakesurf Championships for the ultimate wake throwdown of the new decade. The fourth and final stop will take us to the tropical paradise of Playa del Carmen, Mexico for the Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships. Reeling off the momentum felt in 2019 the WWA Wakeboard World Championships will once again join the Nautique WWA Wake Park World Championships for an epic season finale.
Pro Men, Pro Women and Jr. Pro Men athletes compete throughout the season with over $30,000 (USD) in additional prize money on the line for the overall Nautique Wake Series title. The entire season comes down to the final stop where the WWA World Champions, Nautique Wake Series Overall Champions and WWA Wakeboard World Series Overall Champions are crowned.
“The Nautique Wake Series brings together wakeboarders of all ages and skill levels to battle for titles while combining fun and progressing the sport,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “With an exciting series of events set for the 2020 season, I can’t wait to see what all of the riders have up their sleeves and look forward to seeing them perform their best behind the award-winning G23.”
