With the help of professional wakeboarder, Shaun Murray, the Water Sports Industry Association has released a new video to promote responsible boating habits. The video focuses on driving and passenger safety, the importance of maintaining access to waterways for boating enthusiasts and being respectful to other users out on the water.
The WSIA is encouraging media and other industry participants to share the video through social media channels in order to spread their message of safety as the North American boating season gets underway.
A few specific boating tips include being responsible for your wakes, being responsible for your sound level and staying clear of docks and other boaters.
"Dumb boating might not just cost you a ticket, it might cost you your lake," Murray said in the clip.
