The 58th Nautique Masters
This past weekend we traveled to Pine Mountain, GA, to Callaway Gardens to attend the Masters Water Ski and Wakeboard Tournament presented by Nautique. Ambush Board Co. has been at this event for 20 years with a merch tent with one of the best views of the action on Robin Lake. Going into the weekend everyone was buzzing about what would the Pro Men’s Wakeboard podium end up looking like. We got to see a four man final of Tony Iacconi, Cory Teunissen, Harley Clifford, and Mike Dowdy, and it was absolutely mental! We predicted a Harley vs. Dowdy showdown and after seeing Cory crush it we knew it would be a toss-up because his run was mind-blowing.
The WWA has a really good highlight on Instagram:
One of the best stories in the Pro Women’s Wakeboard Finals was certainly Meagan Ethell. Nautique team rider Meagan has been rehabbing after a knee injury and took back her top spot on the podium for her third win in a row! She no doubt had a flawless run and had the whole beach cheering her on. Can’t wait for the video of the event to drop so you can all see her insane run. Nicely done, Meagan!
In the Wakeskate Finals it was a showdown between Coco, Austin , Reed Hansen, and Brian Grubb. In classic form Grubb laid down his stand-up run to take his third straight win and fourth total Masters Wakeskate win. A solid performance, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that we missed Danny Hampson big time.
