Buxton Marine is thrilled to announce that the 2014 Nautique Wake Games will be hitting the waters of the Orlando Watersports Complex this coming April!
The Nautique Wake Games is the largest wakeboard teamed event in the world and attracts over 200 professional and amateur riders who get paired together to compete in a number of contests. Each athlete will compete in their respective division which is separated by age and skill level and will contribute points for their team by pulling off a slew of jumps and tricks. All 24 divisions will crown a winner, and the team with the highest total score at the end will take home the title.
There is a huge pool of talent in the pro men’s division, including crowd favorite Mike Dowdy, last year’s rookie of the year winner and Team Nautique rider. The 19 year-old prodigy spent the off-season fine tuning his moves behind the awesome Super Air Nautique G23, one of the official tow boats at this year’s Wake Games. Dowdy is looking to dethrone the 2013 King of Wake Season Title winner and Orlando native Phil Soven, who is sure to have quite a few tricks up his sleeve as well. There will also be a hoard of professional female riders to open up the 2014 Queen of Wake season including Team Nautique riders Raimi Merritt and Meghan Ethell.
“It’s awesome to start the new season again with the Nautique Wake Games at Orlando Watersports Complex,” said Chris Bischoff, competition director at World Sports & Marketing. “The G23 is pumping out one of the most impressive wakes I’ve ever seen, so sky’s the limit for what we’ll be seeing the riders perform off it this year.”
