2017 ROTY | Steel Lafferty
One of the highest honors in wake, the Rider of the Year award goes to somebody that not only is insane on the board, but that embodies the true spirit of the sport. They stay hungry to better themselves and wakeboarding no matter the obstacles that get in their way. The names who have taken this title home are known far and wide and for good reason. This year, one rider really stood out not only as an amazing rider but as an all around good dude. So without further ado, your 2017 ROTY is Mr. Steel Lafferty!
