2014 Nautique NationalsAcworth, GA - The Legendary Super Air Nautique G23 greeted top amateurs from across the U.S. with perfect wakes to begin the 2017 Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships presented by Rockstar Energy. Standouts in each division advanced through challenging semifinal rounds of competition to secure a spot in tomorrow's final as their National title hopes all come down to this. The 2017 Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships is the third stop of the Nautique Wake Series; the only series that puts riders first.
 
Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships"It’s always an exciting first day at the Nautique WWA Wakeboard Nationals with all of the amateurs riding their best behind the Super Air Nautique G23," said Nautique President Greg Meloon. "These young guns are the future of our sport and they’re taking wakeboarding to the next level, and we’re glad to showcase that the G23 throws out the perfect wakes for amateur and pro riders alike."
 
Kyla Hendricks (WI) laid down a mix of 180’s and grabs in the Women Wakeskate division, earning the top score of the day with 67.67. She has some stiff competition in Natalie Graham (AZ) who proved to be equally as impressive with a variety of tricks finishing second with 63.33. They will be joined in the final by Brianna Full (WI) who finished third with 53.33 and the always impressive Kira Lewis (NJ) who placed fourth with 49.00.
 
Nautique WWA Wakeboard National ChampionshipsThe Jr. Women division has been one of the most exciting of the season as we have seen each rider take their runs up a notch each contest.

Hot on her heels Hollie Waldrop (FL) scored 73.00 in second followed by Aliza Capen (TX) in third with 48.33 heading through to tomorrow's final.

In the Jr. Boys Beginner division Kien Shapiro (FL) had an amazing opening run with a heat-winning score of 71.67 showing that hard work pays off landing every 180 in the book and a big grabs.

Nautique WWA Wakeboard National ChampionshipsWith the press of a button, the award-winning Super Air Nautique G23 showcased its versatility, increasing the wake's shape and size for the Jr. Men as they pushed the envelope with big spins and mobes. Jonathon Wilkes (GA) took heat one throwing a massive switch back-mobe. Noah Wildman (IN) had a solid stand up ride in heat two hitting a moby dick and a wrapped KGB for a winning score of 90.00. In heat three, a stylish Joey Gallagher (FL) threw a cab 540 and KGB for the win on his way to tomorrow's final showdown scoring 81.60.
