MIAMI, Fla., May 9, 2023 — Boat Trader, America’s largest boating marketplace, is bringing back a second season of its award-winning original content series, Stomping Grounds, premiering Friday, May 19 at 8 p.m. (ET).

The brand-new season of Stomping Grounds will feature: NFL’s Logan Cooke from the Jacksonville Jaguars; a decked-out pontoon boat built by Jaguar fans named ‘Jag’n Wagon’; epic wake surfing through the canyons of Lake Powell; a close look at the underwater suit Chadwick Boseman wore in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever; and more. Adventure awaits as the show travels to discover boating stories in destinations like Chicago, IL; Nashville, TN; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; Austin, TX; and New Orleans, LA.
“After the successful run of Stomping Grounds’ first season, we knew that boating culture was something people wanted to see more of,” said Ryan McVinney, Stomping Grounds creator and director of content at Boats Group. “The show emphasizes how boating is an integral part of our shared heritage as Americans. Through our travels, we’ve witnessed a diverse group of boaters united around their love for the outdoors and an on-the-water lifestyle, which has been truly inspiring. We look forward to sharing more one-of-a-kind boating stories and adventures in the upcoming season.”
The official watch party at Jacksonville’s Freedom Boat Club starts at 7 p.m. (ET) on the series premiere date of May 19th and is free to the public. The event will have live music, a food truck and a raffle for attendees, including Boat Trader and Stomping Grounds swag, an autographed football from the Jag’s Logan Cooke and more.
