ORLANDO, FL (March 23rd, 2017) - Nautique is proud to announce a brand-new series of events for 2017 dubbed Nautique Swervin’ Weekends presented by HO Skis, USA Water Ski and AWSA (American Water Ski Association). Designed to expose people to waterskiing in a fun and laid-back environment, the 9-stop event series kicks off in April and will be pulled by the record-setting Ski Nautique 200. Completely free of charge for all participants that sign up, these USA Water Ski sanctioned events are aimed to bring everyone together to further the growth of waterskiing all around the country.
During each event a Nautique pro waterskier will be in attendance to provide tips, help teach newcomers how to waterski and showcase just how much fun waterskiing is. Lunch and snacks will be provided free of charge to all participants, but space is limited for each event so sign up quickly.
“Giving people the chance to experience waterskiing in a non-competitive, fun and light-hearted environment is important to showcase the waterskiing lifestyle,” said Nautique president Greg Meloon. “This one-of-a-kind series will give everyone involved an inclusive and enjoyable experience that highlights the lifestyle behind a Nautique.” Meloon added.
“We want to make sure everyone has a good time, gets a chance to ski behind the 200 and enjoys the life that we waterskiers have the privilege to live,” said Nautique athlete Nate Smith. “Waterskiing is so much fun and I’m really looking forward to teaching new people and to share my love for the sport with everyone I can this summer.”
Support for Nautique Swervin’ Weekends is also brought to us by HO Skis. HO will be on-hand during each event with brand-new gear for everyone to try out. Skis, vests, gloves, ropes, handles and much more will all be made available to make sure everyone can get out on the water and have fun. Not only will HO be providing any gear you’d like to try, but they’re also picking up the bill for your USA Water Ski membership for the day as well. With support from HO, USA Water Ski and the AWSA, the Nautique Swervin’ Weekends is set up to be a free event you won’t want to miss!
