The Super Air Nautique G23 has the record for consecutive wins in the awards program.

The Super Air Nautique G23 won Wakeboarding Boat of the Year and Wakesurfing Boat of the Year honors at the 2017 WakeWorld Riders Choice Awards.

Additionally, two Nautique team riders, Noah Flegel and Meagan Ethell, earned top honors in their respective disciplines. Flegel won Wakesurfer of the Year and Ethell took home Female Wakeboarder of the Year. Both train behind the Super Air Nautique G23.

“I could not be happier to see the Super Air Nautique G23 win both the Wakesurf and Wakeboard Boat of the Year categories again, but then to also have two Nautique athletes honored for their accomplishments is just amazing,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said in a statement. “To witness all of our team’s hard work on the G23 be recognized is incredible, but to back it up with what our athletes do behind the boat really resonates with us and customers everywhere.”

The Riders Choice Awards are voted on by riders, surfers and industry enthusiasts. The Super Air Nautique G23 has the record for consecutive wins over the course of the awards program. The boat took the wakesurf boat of the year award four times and won wakeboard boat of the year five times.
