Nautique announced the 2016 Nautique Wake Series, which it said is towed behind the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23.
The series seeks to provide high-level competition worldwide in a family-friendly environment. It also seeks to develop stars while showcasing top athletes.
The addition of the Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships provides athletes a platform throughout the season, with every event held behind the Super Air Nautique G23.
The 2016 Nautique Wake Series will span three continents and include the Moomba Masters — presented by Nautique Boats; the Nautique Wake Open; the Nautique European Pro Am; the Nautique WWA U.S. Wakeboard National Championships; and the WWA Wakeboard World Championships.
Four stops of the Nautique Wake Series also will be stops of the WWA Wakeboard World Series.
“The Nautique Wake Series is an integral part of the WBWS,” World Wakeboard Association president Shannon Starling said in a statement. “It’s the only global series to combine divisions of all ages and ability levels on the same stage with the very best pro riders our sport has to offer. The addition of the Nautique WWA Wakeboard World Championships only rounds out this spectacular series.”
“The Nautique Wake Series has grown each year, staying dedicated to providing all riders the opportunity to compete at world-class events behind our Super Air Nautique G-Series,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said.
“These events embrace the lifestyle of wakeboarding in a family-oriented atmosphere while promoting progression from amateur athletes to pros pushing the limits. It is an exciting time for wakeboarding, and we can’t wait to start the 2016 season.”
