PLEASE NOTE: The following information is from the 2019 Grand Rapids Boat Show. The 2020 show details will be available soon.
The Boat Show has an impressive line-up of Professional Riders scheduled to be onsite throughout the weekend! Stop by the participating boat dealers’ displays to meet them while you’re at the Show.
Professional wakeboarders JD Webb and Jeff Mckee will be hanging out
in the Premier Motorsports’ display Friday – Sunday.
Nautique Team Rider
JD grew up in Anna Maria Island, FL and has been wakeboarding for over 16 years. He has been a professional wakeboarder for 8 years. One of his favorite places to wakeboard is in Northwestern Australia and some of his biggest accomplishments include jumping the Lake Eola Fountain and getting the key to the City of Orlando.
Nautique Team Rider
Jeff is from Orlando, FL and has been wakeboarding for 18 years, turning pro in the early 2000’s. A couple of his favorite places that wakeboarding has taken him are Fiji, the Philippines and Singapore. The biggest accomplishment of his career has been being able to support himself doing what he loves to do every day of the week.
Meet pro wakeboarders Trever Maur, Bob Soven and Jake Pelot
at the Action Water Sports booth Friday – Saturday.
Hyperlite Wakeboards Team Rider
Hyperlite pro Trever Maur is progressing the sport of wakeboarding right before our eyes. The son of stand-up PWC racers, Maur was born into a life on the water and started wakeboarding when he was 8. To call Trever unconventional is a bit of an understatement. The path he’s carved out in wake is nothing short of his own and with his style and creativity, there’s no telling what he will come up with next.
Liquid Force Team Rider, MasterCraft Team Rider
Wakeboarding since he was two, Bob plays hard and competes harder. When he’s not pushing the boundaries on his wakeboard, he is busy free diving 100′ deep with a spear gun in his hand, stalking game in the swamp with his bow, or firing up a crowd with his explosive personality. Bob can make you laugh even when he is being serious, has never eaten at Red Lobster, and is a bona fide lover of the junkiest of junk country. We should all have more Bob in our lives.
Ronix Wakeboards Team Rider
Jake is not only a world famous shredder but he’s also one of the nicest people you’ll meet. He’s a local in Orlando and at Lake Ronix and is know as “Old Reliable” or “Jake from State Farm.” Cable, rails or boat, this dude does it all.
Professional rider Cassidy Gale will be at the Tommy’s display Friday – Sunday.
Malibu Team Rider
Cassidy has been riding since 2010 and is sponsored by Malibu, Agenda, Follow and Tommy’s. She is in the process of building a custom Malibu M235 to train on in 2018! Cassidy spends her summers in Michigan and her winters in Florida. One of the things in her career that she’s most proud of is winning the Wakesurf World Championship as an amateur in 2016.
