ORLANDO, Florida (January 16, 2019) – Nautique Boat Company and Kelly Slater Wave Company (KSWC) are pleased to announce a brand new marketing partnership. As the exclusive towboat of the Surf Ranch Lemoore, Nautique will have a Super Air Nautique on-hand to provide Surf Ranch guests with another way to spend time on the water and experience the boating industry’s best surf wave and wakeboard wakes.
This relationship allows Nautique and KSWC to align their mutual offerings. Both companies have expanded the reach of surfing with their respective technologies, and look to encourage more people to get on the water into the future. The revolutionary technology that KSWC have implemented has been transformational in the surf world, while Nautique has taken surfing to inland waterways across the globe with their Nautique Surf SystemTM. Equipped aboard all of the Super Air Nautique boats, Nautique has allowed for surfing to be enjoyed in places otherwise thought unimaginable.
“We are very excited about this new partnership and where it will take wakesurfing. KSWC and the World Surf League are brands that are innovating and growing the sport of surfing. Surfers are on a constant search for the next wave, and we see our different technologies complementing each other to feed those desires and grow surfing,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “Surfing will always have its roots in the ocean, but with KSWC and Nautique Boats producing waves for everyone to enjoy, we look forward to being a part of a future where surfing can flourish everywhere.”
“We are thrilled to partner with Nautique to offer another way to create unique and memorable moments at Surf Ranch Lemoore,” said Nick Franklin, KSWC President. “The addition of a towboat, which will be available in early 2019, will further enhance the exceptional customer experience at this world-class facility as well as giving visitors more ways to engage and connect with this inspirational sport.”
