MarineMax and Nautique combine for Georgia event

MarineMax and Nautique partnered for an event last weekend called Ride Into Summer, which took place June 16 and 17 at the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds on Lake Oconee in Georgia.

“We had such a great turnout. It was amazing to see everyone wakesurfing and wakeboarding behind the innovative Nautique models,” MarineMax general manager Jeff Ellis said in a statement.

On June 16 guests watched Nautique pros Shawn Watson and Drew Danielo perform a demonstration. On June 17 attendees got out on the water to try riding wakes behind the Super Air Nautique GS20, GS22, G23 and G25.

“The design and technology aboard our boats is truly groundbreaking,” Nautique Southeast account manager Sammy Roberts said. “Those that want the best in wakesurfing, wakeboarding and skiing at the highest level can certainly enjoy our spacious G or GS series boats. Also, those that want a thrill of transferring side to side, the Nautique Surf Select gives surfers the ability to customize their ride from behind the boat at the touch of a button.”
