CATCH - CLEAN - COOK

     

    Living the Sea-Doo Life touches all the senses – even your taste buds!

     

    We hit the warm waters of the Florida Keys with fishing guide Nathan Weinbaum aboard the Sea-Doo FISH PRO with dinner on our minds. As anyone who’s been fishing knows, some days don’t always go as planned. With a little persistence and just enough luck, a bad day fishing can turn into a good meal quick. Especially with this recipe for amazing ceviche made with Mutton Snapper caught earlier in the day.

    Nick Taylor: Sea-Doo Brand Ambassador

     

    It’s all about the freedom of the water, and Sea-Doo ambassador Nick Taylor knows exactly how to find it. The Anna Maria Island, Fla., native took his wakeskate talents and love for the Sea-Doo Life to Honokowai, Hawaii, where he currently explores one of Earth’s most inspiring playgrounds.

    When he’s not enjoying one of the many blue-water lagoons with his buddies and his Sea-Doo WAKE, he’s taking in the islands from above as he works towards his helicopter pilot license. But it’s on the water where 29-year-old Taylor is at his happiest. Whether it’s in the surf, sand or on his board, his passion for the Sea-Doo Life is hard to miss!

    What do you feel the advantages are to wakeskating behind a Sea-Doo?

    Well for starters, you don’t need a $150,000 boat to have fun!  Wakeskating behind a Sea-Doo lets you enjoy all the best parts of riding without breaking the bank, plus the shallow draft & maneuverability allow you to ride all sorts of places that big boats could never access.  It’s the ultimate all-terrain wakeskate craft!

    Favorite place to ride?

    My current home on the island of Maui sits on a magical coastline full of secret blue water coves, tall misty cliffs with waterfalls pouring straight into the ocean, healthy reefs, & even world-class surf to tow into…  I can’t imagine a better place to have a Sea-Doo, to be able to wakeskate all the time, or anywhere I’d be happier.

    Dream place to ride/wake skate?

    I’d need to bring a wetsuit, and it might be hard to get my Sea-Doo WAKE trailered out there, but now that we know about the abundance of liquid water on Enceladus, it’s hard not to daydream about what it might be like to wakeskate on one of Saturn’s moons.  To look up from my board in an alien sky & see those spectacular rings so close…

    Describe your perfect day on the water:

    Wake up in the sand on my favorite Maui beach, eat a bowl of cereal & some mangos off the tree, spend a few hours with my friends taking turns towing each other into slabby barrels behind the Sea-Doo, take them for a mid-day helicopter cruise around the deep-carved valleys to the west, bring the Sea-Doo WAKE back around to the glassy side of the island for a wakeskating sesh, some light-gear fishing, & swimming with the whales, then fresh fish tacos for lunch at a secret waterfall, & finally sneak in one more wakeskate & hydrofoil session under the sea cliffs just before the glowing sun dips below the horizon.

    Describe your life away from the water:

    These days, if I’m not out on the water wakeskating, hydrofoiling, surfing, diving, & fishing, I’m usually either flying helicopters or sharpening myself musically.

    What’s your one must-have accessory for your Sea-Doo?

    Now that I’m used to having so much easy control with the IBR system, I could never go back to the dark ages of the past!  The premium audio system definitely adds another element of fun to every session, now that we can bump our favorite jams while we ride.

    What’s one innovation you’d like to see on a Sea-Doo that doesn’t currently exist?

    I look forward to the day that Sea-Doo engineers figure out how to make the entire paint job photovoltaic, so that we never need to fill up a tank with hydrocarbons to have a good time, and our days on the water really will be fueled by sunshine =P

    Favorite place to eat?

    I don’t know, somewhere fast so I can get back on the water.

    First artist you add to your play list?

    I’m on a pretty serious DISPATCH kick lately…

    Celebrity you’d most like to ride with?

    Celebrities aren’t really my thing, but it would be rad to wakeskate with John John Florence or Obama, for the conversation, perspectives, & the life experience of it all.  They’re both from Hawai’i, so I don’t know why I haven’t tried to line up a Sea-Doo session with them in Kaneohe Bay.  Maybe I need an agent…  And on another note, I’d definitely be down to teach Emma Watson & Tom Holland how to ride it.

    The best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

    Stay True, Live Free…

     

     

    Erminio Iantosca: Sea-Doo Brand Ambassador

    Since the age of 4, Erminio Iantosca hasn’t been able to get enough of the water. He doesn’t just live the Sea-Doo Life, he sleeps, eats and breathes it! 

    “My love affair with watercraft started with my dad. He brought one home when I was 4 and I’ve been hooked since that very first day,” Iantosca said.

    The 38-year-old Naples, Fla., native spends every minute he can on the water with family and friends or making waves on various watercraft racing circuits. 

    “I try to ride almost every weekend between racing, practicing and joy rides, I’m on the water all year round,” he said.

    Away from the water, he lends a hand running the family restaurant business with his mom, Josephine, sister, Kristina, and brother, Joseph. If you do happen to catch a rare instance of Erminio on dry land, he might also be chilling with Harper, his Blue Nose Pitbull.

    ANDREW HILL: SEA-DOO BRAND AMBASSADOR

    Whenever you see a bent rod from the seat of a watercraft in Auckland, New Zealand, there’s a good chance you’ll find Andrew Hill holding one end and the catch of the day on the other. Ever since casting his first line as a boy from the rocky New Zealand shoreline, he’s been after the big one.

    Hill has turned fishing from youthful pastime, to hobby, to meal ticket (literally and figuratively). While the 46-year-old married father of four has hooked his share of wall-hangers throughout his career, he’s fishing in somewhat unfamiliar waters thanks to the Sea-Doo FISH PRO with its ability to access shallow waters and remote fishing locations.

    “I’ve always fed a need for speed through motorsports. I really enjoy cars, road bikes and the water,” said Hill. “Sea-Doo has me really enjoying it all in one place with the sea being my true passion.”

    Anthony Radetic: Sea-Doo Brand Ambassador

    Some people choose to live life on the edge, but not many take it to the level of Anthony Radetic. For years that hunger for the ultimate adrenaline rush was fed by jumping out of planes and piloting Blackhawk helicopters in the United States Army.

    A 2004 motor vehicle accident took the use of Radetic’s legs from him abruptly changing the course of his life, but it did little to quell the thrill-seeking spirit that has defined him his entire existence. Since his accident Radetic has relentlessly continued his pursuit of the ultimate adrenaline rush through the likes of hand cycling and as a member of the U.S. Development ski team. But nothing has fed his soul quite like living the Sea-Doo Life.

    “I’m an active guy, so I’m always trying to find something exciting to do,” Radetic said.

    Today, the 40-year-old Dayton Beach native resides in Abbeville, Ala., with his family of four taking in everything the Sea-Doo Life has to offer. From heart pounding pro watercraft racing, to camping trips by water, there’s nothing the Radetic family doesn’t do full-throttle.
