There will be a special surprise for those who attend the Hodag Water Show tonight:
Ben Groen, originally from Otaki, New Zealand, is one of the best barefoot waterskiers in the world. He has a laundry list of achievements to prove it, and this week, he’s hanging out in Rhinelander. All week he’s been working with members of the Hodag Water Show, specifically Grace Petzold, who has trained with Groen at the World Barefoot Center in Florida, where he works. And tonight, he will perform alongside the locals in Hodag Park, bringing a new level of talent to Boom Lake. Don’t believe me? Check out the video above for a preview of what’s in store. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. in Hodag Park.
