Pro Surfers Come to Lake Lanier May 1 – 3 for Southern Surfest

BUFORD, Ga., (April 7, 2015) – The second annual Southern Surfest returns to Laurel Park on Lake Lanier May 1 – 3.

“Experience three awesome days of floaters, airs, cut backs, stalls, spins and grins,” extolled Steve Rhodes, MarineMax Buford’s General Manager. “Hang with other wake surf fans and wake pros, who will be there to give you pointers and show how it’s done.”

Come to watch or to participate.  Participants will ride the wake of 9 top-wake boat brands and 13 board brands.  Riders will surf 10 fifteen-minute sessions over 2-days. All skill levels are invited to participate with a minimum ability to perform clean starts. Riders must be 10-years old or older to participate. There is an entry fee of $300.00 per participant.

Friday, May 1 is a pro clinic day.  Riders can participate in the clinic without taking part in the main event.  MarineMax Buford will be sponsoring free surf clinics for their customers with Nautique pro riders Drew Danielo and Jodi Grassman. For more information call MarineMax Buford at 770-614-6968.
