Today, Nautique announced the addition of wakeboarding phenom Mike Dowdy to its team of athletes.

At eighteen years old Mike Dowdy is quickly becoming one of the most watched riders on the water by both fans and wakeboarding’s top competitors. This season Dowdy has been making a bold statement with wins at the Nautique Wake Games, Masters, Pro Wakeboard Tour stops in Acworth and Fort Worth and is currently ranked number one in the King of Wake standings in the Junior Pro Men division.

With videos posted frequently showcasing his jaw dropping skills on a wakeboard the industry has taken notice of Dowdy’s dedication and enthusiasm to progress the sport. Dowdy is consistently throwing down passes as a Junior competitor that rival those of the top Pro Men in the sport proving that he will be a force to be reckoned with next season as he moves into the Pro Division.

“Nautique has always been pushing the industry and the new Super Air Nautique G23 is progressing the sport to new heights. I’m super pumped to be a part of Team Nautique and to be representing a company that is as dedicated to progressing the sport as I am,” commented Mike Dowdy.
