Nautique is partnering with the European Wakesurf Tour as the official towboat and title sponsor this year.

The Super Air Nautique G23, equipped with the Nautique Surf System, will provide the wave for all four stops, including three World Series of Wake Surfing qualifying events.

The European Wakesurf Tour will include the following events: the Russian Open Wakesurf Cup-Moscow; the Russian Open Wakesurf Cup-St. Petersburg; Ride the Wave-London; and Surf the Lake-Annecy, France. Surfers of all ages will compete in surf and/or skim categories, including amateur, junior, masters, outlaw and pro divisions.

“Our idea is to not only host Wakesurf competitions, but to create a multipurpose sports and entertainment festival,” Russian/U.K. pro wakesurfer and organizer of the European Wakesurf Tour Alena Pishchulina said in a statement. “The aim is to get more and more people active and on the water from around Europe. Everyone should see how diverse an active way of life can be. Wakesurfing is hip, fresh and inclusive. It appeals to the widest possible demographic across all age groups.”

“Nautique is excited to partner with the European Wakesurf Tour and continue to promote the sport on a worldwide platform,” Nautique president Greg Meloon said. “The wave behind the Super Air Nautique G-Series with NSS is known for its versatility, providing every rider their perfect wave. By supporting events like these we can push the level of competitive wakesurfing while also introducing this amazing sport to people all over the world.”
