Nautique Wake Games

Orlando, Fla. — Top honors were bestowed upon 13 athletes who earned division championships at day three of the Nautique Wake Games presented by Rockstar. The world’s best wakeboarders, in the Pro Men and Pro Women divisions, also held highly competitive quarterfinal and semifinal heats respectively paving the way for a dramatic final day of action tomorrow at Orlando Water Sports Complex.
 
Wake GamesThe Pro Men wasted no time unleashing a fury of progressive tricks off the G23’s massive wake. Heralded rookie and Nautique team rider, Noah Flegel, rose to the top of his heat with a textbook run that meshed huge aerials with technical grabs and a trademark style, showing judges the teenager belongs in the big leagues. To claim the heat win, Flegel’s first as a pro, he had to edge out veteran rider and fellow Nautique team rider JD Webb, who’s second place finish still secured him a spot in tomorrow’s semifinals.
 
“I'm stoked to be moving on to the semis,” said Flegel. “The G23 is insane! Every contest behind the G23 steps up the level of riding and I'm looking forward to all of this year’s Nautique Wake Series stops.”
 
Wake GamesThe Pro Women continued to display excellent riding at the Nautique Wake Games with two neck-to-neck heats today. Nautique team rider, Meagan Ethell has positioned herself as the favorite heading into tomorrow’s finals with a mind boggling semifinals run that included an full arsenal of precise airs, on-point rail riding and flawlessly executed grabs.
However, it will be no cake walk to victory for Ethell, who faces stiff competition tomorrow from a slew of Pro Women including another Team Nautique standout Raimi Merritt and Australian rider Amber Wing, who both registered two of today’s most impressive runs in the division.
 
Wake GamesThe amateur ranks awarded championship trophies to 13 division winners today including: Cobe France (Junior Men), Tim Pitschke (Masters), Matt Vermillion (Veterans), Sam Brown (Boys), Gabriel Benetton (Junior Boys), Tyler Sommer (Amateur Wake Skate), Kat Laird (Veterans Women), Stacey Chrisman (Masters Women), Kyla Hendrick (Junior Girls), Zahra Kell (Girls), Xavier Olea Vorhauer (Junior Boys Beginner), Drew Drennan (Boys Beginner), Connor Aguilar-Poggetto (Adaptive Sitboarding),
 
Wake GamesUnique to Wake Games, this event also includes a team competition element. 10 pre-selected pro riders serve as team captains and hosted a live draft after yesterday’s competition consisting of the 90 remaining athletes who advanced past the initial qualifying rounds. Over the course of the final two days of competition, the athletes compete in their respective divisions, which are separated by age, sex and skill level, while contributing points toward a team score based on their individual placement in that division. The winner will be determined based upon tomorrow’s final results.
 
The Nautique Wake Games presented by Rockstar Energy Drink is organized by World Sports & Marketing of Orlando, Fla., and has the support of the following sponsors: Nautique Boats, Rockstar Energy Drink, Fox, Ronix, CONTOUR, CWB, Hyperlite, Byerly, Peavey, PCM Marine Engines and WAKEBOARDING magazine.
