What are you doing right now? If you live in Southern California and you’re not at the Fred Hall Boat Show in Del Mar then we have a problem. The show started on Wednesday with the kickoff of the third annual Wakesports Invitational Rail Jam. Shane Bonifay, Collin Harrington, Kevin Henshaw, Jacob Valdez, and Shawn Watson all flew in to take part in the festivities. Now, one of the coolest things about the Del Mar show is the person running it. Bart Hall is about a 6’5 fisherman who couldn’t be more stoked about wakeboarding. He works with the riders on every idea they have in order the make the rail jam better for the public. This year, Wakesports brought out a rooftop box, A-frame, and wall ride, providing a number of options for the riders. Jeff Barton also flew out to entertain the fans while the riders got their rail jam on.
The first two days of the show were pretty awesome and all of the riders shredded their faces off. The show runs through Sunday so you can still catch the action before the show is over. Still not getting in your car to come to the show? Well, here are some quick reasons to convince you:
-One of the riders at the show has the new cover of Alliance. (Come to the show to find out who!)
-Collin Harrington has his camera and is cramming some last minute filming for his new movie Box of Fun.
-This is the only event scheduled to bring pro riders to Southern California in 2009.
- Check out the all the latest 2009 Liquid Force and Ronix product (and buy it!).
-You know you want to.
-If wakeboarding is not your thing, they have duck races that are about ten yards away from the rail jam that are extreme as hell.
-If you come to the show I’ll know I didn’t write this article for nothing.
The rail jam is going down Friday at 3:00 and 6:30, Saturday at 12:00, 3:00, and 6:30, and Sunday at 12:00 and 3:00. Be there!
