Amsterdam Rail Jam

Posted by admin

Last month a few of the guys from the team headed up to Toronto Canada for the Amsterdam Rail Jam.  The firstweekend Jimmy LaRiche and Aaron Rathy were there followed by Keith Lidberg and Jeff McKee on the second.  They were all in full wet suit gear doing it up for our Nautique dealer, Pride Marine Group, in Canada.

This is the largest indoor pool I’ve ever seen.  The Nautique guys from Pride Marine Group know how to put on a show.  They had a hockey arena filled with 40 degree water pumped right out of Lake Ontario.  You know you’ve witnessed true love for the sport with you see wakeboarders hitting rails in freezing cold water.  This didn’t stop Jimmy LaRiche from sticking a toeside 900 off of the kicker either and winning the “Best Trick” award.

Check out the video to see how it all went down.
