Monterey Boats is excited to announce the addition of their first ever pro-wakesurfers into the Monterey Boats family. Jaqueline & Ellis Fort will be representing Monterey Boats and demonstrating the full potential of the Monterey Boats Surf Edition models! We welcome you to check out their latest surf video and see our new Surf Editions first hand. We’re sure you’re going to fall in love with them, as well as our new Roswell Surf Edition series.
Our pro-surfer Jaqueline Forts’ journey into wakesurfing began in 2003. She started competing professionally in 2007, ranking 2nd in the world and has continued to podium throughout the years. Jaqueline has considered it to be a privilege to travel the planet, competing globally and act as an ambassador for the sport. “I am honored to be a sponsored rider for Monterey and to help bring this sport to the masses with the vision of Monterey Boats,” said Jaqueline. “Not only am I excited about the future of this company, but also for that of this amazing sport. I cannot wait to continue to refine my skills behind the Monterey Surf Edition!”
The second member of the Monterey Boats pro-surf team is Ellis Fort. Ellis has been wakesurfing from the day he met his wife, Jaqueline Fort, about 7 years ago. It was Jaqueline Fort and a good friend of theirs who taught him how to wakesurf. Ellis began competing with the coaching of these two advanced athletes, starting as an amateur rider and quickly advancing and taking the position as the #1 Outlaw Rider at the World Championships in 2012. He began riding professionally the following season, competing with and against the best riders in the world. “I am now a proud rider for Monterey Boats, and love representing a company with such a great reputation and product. I am honored to assist in the development and marketing of the amazing surf machine they have engineered,” said Ellis. “The world of wakesurfing just got bigger, and so many more people can now enjoy the same personal escape into the wave behind the boat that both Jaqueline and myself do.”
The New Roswell Surf Edition is perfect for both the beginning wakesurfer as well as your advanced level surfers. We’ve equipped each of our Roswell Editions with the new Volvo forward facing drive, giving you better performance than ever before and providing a safe wakesurfing experience.
Jaqueline and Ellis Fort will be posting videos of their wakesurfing journeys on the Monterey Boats Roswell Surf Editions on Monterey’s Facebook page, so be sure to like us and follow them on Facebook. We’re sure we’ll soon have you enjoying your very own adventures aboard your own Monterey too!
