It’s time to grab your wakeboard, waterski, showski, wakeskate, swivel ski, jumpers, hydrofoil, trick skis or your bare feet and head on over to Sunset Beach on Saturday, January 7, at 9 a.m. for the annual Polar Bear Day. Boats and crews will be provided.

Participants will brave the chilly water temperatures wearing swim suits and ski vests only during their ride; then warm up afterward on the beach with a barbecue, hot drinks and a warm fire.
