Winter Haven, FL (July 30, 2021) – Day 3 of the 2021 Nautique USA National Wakesurf Championships presented by GM Marine showcased 13 divisions of amateur surfers battling in their final round of action behind the G23 Paragon. With athletes of all ages, genders, and skill levels, the Nautique Wake Surf Series provides divisions for everyone who desires to compete. Starting with the Men’s Beginner and Women’s Beginner divisions and ending with the Masters and Veteran Men and Women, there was truly something for everyone on the water. Brother and sister, Blake and Bailey Daniel from Victoria, Texas both ended up on the podium of the Men’s and Women’s Beginner divisions at their very first wakesurf competition ever. Blake won the National Championship for the Men’s Beginner division while Bailey took second place in the Women’s Beginner division.
One of the highlights of the day was the Adaptive Sitboarding and Adaptive Standing divisions. These ever-inspiring athletes not only display impressive maneuvers on the water, but also embody the tenacity of the human spirit by overcoming all obstacles in their way. For the Adaptive Sitboarding, double leg amputee Stefan Leroy (FL) took the win with some big carves and impressive airs, while blind rider Mike Nelson (FL) easily won the Adaptive Standing division. Nautique is always so proud of the Adaptive riders and the always inspiring runs that they execute.
