For Nautique wakeboarder J.D. Webb, in between contests, filming video parts, and making the sport look unreal, he travels the globe putting smiles on faces and sharing his passion for wakeboarding with as many people as he can.
To kick off 2016, he joined Nautique Central on the Gold Coast of Australia to do what he does best on the waters of Somerset Dam, in Queensland, Australia. After what turned out to be yet another epic adventure living the Nautique life around the world, J.D. checked in to give us a glimpse into how they do it down under.
Words by J.D. Webb
When I received the call that I was headed to Australia for a trip with Nautique Central, I have to say I was beyond excited. I ended up leaving on the 1st of January and was able to meet up with my roommate BP to get some surfing in at the world famous breaks on Australia’s Gold Coast to shake off the jet lag. Then I met up with the crew from Nautique Central and headed up to another rad spot. When these guys do something they do it BIG, and I had no idea what I was in for!
We drove a couple hours outside of the Gold Coast to Somerset Dam for some demos and riding with the customers of Nautique Central. There were Nautique’s everywhere and the Nautique Central G23 wake was macking! It was awesome to see everyone so stoked about Nautique and being out on the water.
