Wakesurfers of all ages and skill levels from all across the nation battled it out for their chance to claim a coveted spot in the finals for their division.
“We are thrilled to be hosting the National Wakesurf Championships so close to home and our world headquarters here in Florida,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “It’s going to be an exciting week watching the best wakesurfers battle for National titles, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of the progression showcased behind the G23 Paragon!”
Friends, family members, and wakesurf enthusiasts gathered on the shore to watch the action as the Masters Division kicked off the day wakesurfers eager to showcase their skills.
