In 2004, a group of local watersports enthusiasts started a grassroots effort to bring a top pro wakeboarder to Lake Murray. The effort was a success, and the group dubbed 'The Rough Riders' hosted a weekend with two pro wakeboarders in June 2005. In the following years, the event continued and gained support of local boat dealers and businesses. 'The Weekend With the Pros' has grown to a two day event attended by over 1,000 spectators.


'The 11th Annual Weekend With the Pros', will be hosted on Lake Murray Friday & Saturday June 17 & 18. Last year's attendance was over 1,200 spectators and 280 boats and this year's event is anticipated to be the biggest to-date. Pro wakeboarders Shaun Murray, Danny Harf & Josh Palma will be on Lake Murray and ready to throw their biggest tricks. 
The event features an In Water Boat Show, Wakeboarding Lessons and the grand finale of the event, the Pro Wakeboard Show.
