2015 Atlanta Boat Show w/ Ambush Board Co. & Nautique Boats

There is no better cure for the winter blues than when the Boat Show comes to town!  This year’s boat show marks a long run of 15 years in a row for me.  It’s a great time to catch up with friends and meet new people associated with the water sports industry.  Ambush Board Co. and Nautique Boats set up in the Marine Max of Georgia booth and displayed an exemplary selection of boats from the 2015 lineup.

The G Series boats attracted a lot of attention and featured some outstanding new colorways this year.  Nautique stepped it up with two colors in particular – Orange Metal Flake & Purple Metal Flake.  The depth in the paint is astonishing in person!  All of the Nautique boats were filled with people exploring all the details of the interior and learning about the new Linc 2.0 Helm System.  Lines of people waited patiently for their turns to board the G21, G23, and G25.  Seeing the boats in person was such an amazing experience and it was unbelievable to see people stay on the boats for 15-30 minutes at a time.

The Nautique Open Golf Tournament at Callaway Gardens | The 55th Masters

Titlest Pro V1 Nautique Ball
Nautique Golf Ball

Every year the global community of water sports athletes and fans travels to Pine Mountain, Georgia to Callaway Gardens for what many feel is the greatest water ski and wakeboard event of the year.   As a rider, getting invited to the Masters can be a career highlight.  If you win, you join the rarefied ranks of Masters champions.  What could be more fun, right?  In my opinion, the real battle at the Masters can be found on the golf courses of Callaway Gardens on the first day of the tournament.  That’s when the Nautique Open golf tournament is held.  While most look forward to the events on the water, as do I, the real fun is getting all your friends who are riders and industry heads out for a round of golf.

BuyWake Takes a Vacation | Orlando, FL

This past weekend we infiltrated Orlando, FL in a bold attempt to rid our skin of its deathly shade of pale. It was an epic soulcation of mammoth proportions. Here’s how it all went down, photo blog style.

All in all it was an amazing trip. The Nautique Wake Games podiums were littered with BuyWake riders, the weather was amazing, and we were continuously surrounded with good people.  Huge shouts to Harley CliffordAndrew Adkison, Josh Palma, and Garrett Cortese for being so accommodating.  See you guys in Acworth.

OMG! <3
On the first morning Harley showed us how to weight a boat. Sink the teak!
