Rail Jam! Wakeboard Show

newWhat do you get when you take 2 pools with over 50 thousand gallons of water, separate them with some gnarly rails, add a winch, and bring in some of the world’s best wakeboard riders? You get a rail jam! Georgia National Fair style! The overly-creative minds of some of wakeboarding’s cutting-edge thrill seekers combined with a little old fashioned ingenuity have created a set up that pushes beyond the boundaries in the sport of wakeboarding. By utilizing a high-speed, gas-powered winch, riders are given the ability to take their sport “to the streets” with the use of portable pools, separated by rails and sliders, and pulled by the winch. You will get an up close and in your face experience that is as exciting for the riders as it is for spectators. Now, instead of watching the riders from 100 yards away on the shore, spectators can be just a few feet away from the action! www.stepupproductions.com
