Time for the Boat Show!

Wake board and wake skate riders will show off their latest techniques as they ride in the 170- foot wake skate park that will be constructed inside the South Towne Expo Center.  The wake park, weighing more then 400,000 pounds, includes: a starting pond, landing pool, stunt rails and 54,000 gallons of water.  The park allows show attendees to watch their favorite riders kick, slide, jump and flip off the rails and into the landing pool at boat speeds.

This year the wake park will feature a transformable rail that will be alternated between rail jams.  Changing the angles of the rail allows professional wakeboards to change up their tricks and showcase moves never seen before.

Wakeboard celebrities such as Ben Greenwod, Parks Bonify, J.D. Webb and Jason Kimball will be at the show to sign autographs throughout the show, from Wednesday to Sunday.

The 44th Utah Boat & Watersports Expo will take place at the South Towne Expo Center Wednesday & Thursday, February 4 & 5, 2 p.m. – 10 p.m.; Friday; February 5, Noon – 10 p.m.; Saturday, February 7, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Sunday, February 8, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.  Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, $5 for juniors (7-12) and kids under 6 are free.  Buy tickets online and save at  www.utahboatshow.com.  For more information, please call 801-485-7399.
