Next Level Sponsored Events in October

Next Level Car Truck Audio Custom Charity Golf Sponsor

In the month of October, Next Level was honored to be a sponsor in this years seasonal Gravel Tour wakeboard competition and the Stars and Pars charity golf tournament supporting Give Kids the World Village.

We were a raffle sponsor for this years 2019 Stars & Pars charity golf and gala at the exquisite Waldorf Astoria Resort Orlando on October, 25th. Posted up in our custom audio tent on the 1st hole, it was fun to watch everyone hit their driver off the tee box, short and far. Thank you again John for inviting us this year!

Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. There, children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations. This golf tournament started 7 years ago with a group of employees who raised $1500 for the charity. Over the years, Stars and Pars has raised a combined $1million in donations from across the country!!!!

It was a great event and we met a lot of caring people donating to the cause. At the end, we picked out of the raffle, a happy golfer who took home a Yeti 45 Hauler with Stars and Pars logo in SeaDek installed on top and a $150 gift card to our shop. Together, the raffle raised over 3x the Yeti’s retail value.

Please visit their website and Instagram account! This child below is only 10 years old and has already undergone 5 open heart surgeries. What an amazing spirit!!

Gravel Tour Final Stop

Saturday gave us another fun filled day out at the famous Orlando Watersports Complex for the final stop of the 2019 Gravel Tour presented by Performance Ski and Surf.

 

We appreciate everyone who came out and showed interest in Next Level at each event. To see our customers supporting charity events in Orlando, and the waterski community, it’s hard not to feel proud to support great causes with great leaders behind them.

This year was the first of hopefully many years to come, of the Thigh High Surf Series Wakesurf Contest.

There were a total of three stops and you can find the standings of all 3 days here at ThighHighSurf.com

Next Level will like to congratulate all of the wakesurf athletes that competed in each division. It was exciting to watch the surfers climb up the rankings for the Overall Series Points.

And thank you to all of the sponsors :

2019 Stars and Pars Charity Golf and Gala

We are excited and proud to announce our sponsorship of this years 2019 Stars & Pars charity golf and gala at the exquisite Waldorf Astoria Resort Orlando on October, 25th.

Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. There, children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations.

A critical illness changes everything for a child. They simply lose their childhood as their daily routine becomes one filled with doctor visits, medical treatments and hospital stays. For one magical week at Give Kids The World Village, these precious children and their families experience the joy of a wish come true, everything from life’s simplest pleasures to the stuff dreams are made of.

-Florida Marine Customs Tent.

 

 

Pathfinder Boat Gets SeaDek

Some boats we work on come new from the dealer, and some come used. The used boats tend to be more fun to work on because we really help transform boats from old looking to new. And the customer’s “WOW” factor is greater when we revive boats than if we just added some electronics.

Installed SeaDek and white caulk around seams of this Pathfinder 2400.

This Pathfinder 2400 boat, we installed SeaDek to the walls of the gunwal’s for a quieter ride with fishing gear hanging up inside. We also added SeaDek with an extra thick (30mm) Helm Pad for under the captains feet.

One of the things that we did to clean up this 2400 was fill seams with new white caulk around the gunwal and center console. This made a big difference to the owner as well as our staff.

Next Level is an authorized dealer of Yeti products and accessories like this cooler and top cushion for seating. It fit perfectly in front of the helm for a better boating experience.
