Learn to Wakeboard Like the Pros
June is upon us, which means it’s time to put on your summer gear and head on out to Lake Murray to enjoy some fun in the sun at Weekend With The Pros. This is the SC Rough Riders 13th time hosting Weekend With The Pros, which has quickly become the largest annual gathering of spectators and wake boarders in the state of South Carolina.
Weekend With The Pros is not only an amazing show, but it’s also a great opportunity for beginner and advanced wake boarders to take lessons from professionals of the trade like Josh Palma, an incredibly talented wakeboarder who has starred in both Baywatch and Shark Nights 3D. Josh, a WWTP veteran will be joined by Dallas Friday, X-Games Gold Medalist and World Champion. They will be offering their expertise during lessons Friday and Saturday at The Frayed Knot. These lessons will include world-class one-on-one coaching behind new wake boats, equipment demos, an event shirt, as well as snacks and lunch with the pros. Lessons will take place for a full-day on Friday for $295 and for a half-day on Saturday for $175. If you’ve been looking for an adventurous birthday, graduation or Father’s Day gift, these lessons would be perfect! Spots are going fast (Saturday’s lessons are sold out) – sign up now!
This event also has an in-water boat show where local dealers’ showcase pontoons, runabouts, fishing boats, center consoles and wakeboard boats for you to check out and demo. The show will be held Friday and Saturday from 9am-6pm at Frayed Knot in Chapin, SC.
Of course, let’s not forget about the highlight of the weekend: the Pro Wakeboard Show! It will begin Saturday at 2pm in front of Frayed Knot and will feature pro riders Josh and Dallas throwing their best tricks for everyone to see. Pro tip: make plans to raft up early to have a great spot to see the show. Stick around afterwards for your chance to meet Josh and Dallas, get autographs, and take photos.
Note that this is a free event with tons of fun for the entire family! From lessons to the in water boat show and the pro wake boarding show, this event has so much to offer. Bring your boat and enjoy the show from the water, or watch the show from land at Frayed Knot!
