Nautique adds two athletes to Team Nautique

ORLANDO, FL (February 9, 2021) – Nautique is pleased to announce the addition of two athletes to the Nautique team with world-champion wakeboarder Rusty Malinoski and wakesurfer Drew Drennan. Already a renowned name in the wakeboarding world, Rusty Malinoski is a 2x Masters Champion, 2x Worlds Champion and 2x Wakeboarder of the Year who brings an immense amount of talent and notoriety to the world-class team of Nautique athletes. In addition, Drew Drennan is a National Champion wakesurfer who as an up-and-coming rider competes at an extremely high level behind the Super Air Nautique G23.

Born and raised in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Rusty brings a unique skillset to the Nautique team with his passion and hardworking nature. His accolades in wakeboarding speak for themselves, but on top of what Rusty brings to the table on the water, his dedication to the sport off the water will reinforce his position as an extremely valuable asset for the Nautique brand as well.

"At this point in my career, the opportunity to join the Nautique family is absolutely incredible,” said Malinoski. “I am so excited to represent and ride for a company that continues to progress the watersports industry to a level that I never imagined. Working with a group of like-minded individuals who have a vision that aligns with mine is refreshing. I look forward to the future with the Nautique and sharing my passion with those who truly push the sport. Signing with Nautique has lit a fire in me, and I cannot wait to get to work, and go bigger than ever before!"

Along with the signing of Rusty Malinoski, Nautique is also proud to announce the signing of Drew Drennan from New Braunfels, TX. A wakesurfer with multiple podium finishes in both surf and skim style divisions at events over the last 8 years of competition, Drew brings a wide array of talent to the Nautique team. Drew has had the opportunity to travel all over the world competing in wakesurfing which has allowed him to have a significant impact in the watersports world.

“It’s such an honor to be added to the Nautique team along with so many other top tier athletes. I’ve ridden behind the Nautique G23 for the past 9 years exclusively because it’s the best boat on the market and provides the biggest surf wave to ride. Being on the Nautique team is a dream come true, and I’m excited for what the future looks like partnering with such a great company.”

With the addition of Rusty Malinoski and Drew Drennan, the Nautique team is slated for an incredible 2021 season and beyond with a diverse and multi-talented group. Training behind the best boats on earth, we are certain to see the entire team reach new heights never thought imaginable.

“I am very excited to add Rusty and Drew to the Nautique family,” said Nautique President Greg Meloon. “Both of these athletes have leveraged their talent to progress wake sports and impact the future. I’m looking forward to seeing what they both can do now that they’ll be behind the best wake boats and contributing to a team that cares about our sport.”
