2014 Nautique NationalsWaco, TX. - The second day of competition at one of wakeboarding’s biggest annual events, the Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships presented by Rockstar, was highlighted by a Texan accomplishing a Texas sized feat. After earning a national title in the Junior Men division of Wake Park Nationals yesterday, Tyler Sommer moved to the lake at BSR today and won the Amateur Wake Skate division.
 
The Texas native completed the second leg of his cross-discipline national titles with a progressive run in the finals. His wakeskating style, like his wake park style, was clean and featured a well-rounded arsenal of tricks. Launching from the Super Air Nautique G21’s ultra smooth wake, Sommer unleashed big wake-to-wake airs, clean rotations and highly technical grabs to clinch his second national title in as many days.
 
Another impressive feat accomplished in Waco today came from Team Nautique athlete Erika Lang, who was competing for the first time in a wakeboard event. She has quickly become an athlete to keep an eye on and earned her first Junior Women National Wakeboard title today. Lang, a current world trick record holder is an inspiration to upcoming watersports enthusiast everywhere.
 
"A huge congratulation goes out to Tyler," said Chris Bischoff, competition director. "Progression has been such a huge element in wakeboarding over the past few years and we’re really seeing a lot of riders excel both behind a boat and in the park. Nautique was instrumental in making it possible for Wakeboard Nationals and Wake Park Nationals to run concurrently at BSR and both events are all the more exciting because of it."
 
In addition to Sommer’s championship performance at day two of Nationals, 17 other athletes claimed national titles today. They included Team Nautique athlete Erika Lang (Jr. Women), Brett Powell (Jr. Boy’s Beginner), Kyla Hendricks (Jr. Girls), Rocco Ralston (Boy’s Beginner), Hollie Waldrop (Girls Finals), Kaitlyn Adams (Women’s Wakeskate), Connor Aguilar-Poggetto (Adaptive Sitboarding), Fynn Bullock (Jr. Boys), Joy Manning (Veteran Women’s), Natalie Graham (Masters Women), Mitch Kappler (Boys), Rebecca Miller (Amateur Women), Brandon Lackey (Masters), Steve Jones (Veterans), Sam Cole (Mens 2), Woody White (Mens 1) and Clayton Holladay (Jr. Men).
 
The Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships is stop number five on the 2014 King of Wake Series. Additionally, it serves as stop number two on the Nautique Wake Series, a four-event professional and amateur wakeboard and wakeskate series.
