The Russell Marine exhibit showcased the shiny new 2017 boat models from Godfrey Pontoon Boats, Nautique (including the versatile new GS series), Key West, Sea Ray, and Sea-Doo. The pro shop was fully stocked with all the new gear and boards from top-of-the-line brands such as Hyperlite, Byerly, Connelly, and more. Pro rider Jimmy LaRiche drew a large crowd to the booth signing autographs and promoting the sport of wakeboarding.

The show was a great way to start the season and is sure to be the kickoff of a great year.
