Nautique Boat Co. and the World Wake Association have partnered to produce the 2018 Nautique USA National Wakesurf Championships.
The event, which will be held on Sept. 28-30, will take place in Waco, Texas, along the Brazos River and be presented by GM Marine Engine Technology.
The championships will be the first of a kind, debuting an all-new judging format. The best wakesurfers from around the country are scheduled to attend.
The new format, which was developed by the WWA along with the top wakesurfers in the sport, will reward the best overall surfers in each division with a focus on difficulty and creativity.
“As a guy who has been in competitive wakesurfing since it started, this new format and approach is a breath of fresh air. It’s no longer how many tricks can you jam into a run but how well and stylish are you executing tricks,” said Drew Daniel0, Nautique team rider.
Nautique and other event sponsors will host an exclusive Beach Party at the all-new BSR Surf Resort.
“We aim to give the best possible experiences to our competitors and their families at Nautique events,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “This is the start of a long-term partnership with the WWA, and we look forward to providing years of fun, competitive and exciting wakesurfing events.”
