Words by Jefferson Vowell at Active Water Sports
- “Anyone in the Northwest who owns a Moomba or Supra Boat is invited to come hang out at the 2nd Annual Skiers Choice Reunion. The plan is to meet at Clackamette Park in Oregon City from 10:00am to 11:30 for registration. Then launch the boats and go on a poker run thru downtown Portland, ending at the beach inside Ross island. We will then relax, BBQ, play games and enjoy the sun. Slingshot is going to be on-site to DEMO Wakeboards.”

WakeboardNorthwest encourages you to take a Slingshot Response or Recoil for a ride if you haven’t already. These boards are truly the future of Wakeboarding in regards to their flex technology. Active Water Sports is the local dealer in Portland to pick up a Slingshot (boot and board) setup. Both their Beaverton and Oregon City locations have a selection of Slingshot Wakeboards for men and women.

All the details and RSVP info for the AWS Boat Owners Reunion is listed after the jump.

Yet another leg of the 2008 Northwest Riders Summer Tour has come to a close. However, with the end of this stop…two more have been added to the list. The crew will be headed to a new location in Washington and also in Oregon.

The last Idaho stop of the season finished off with Coeur D’Alene and Hagadone Marine. We saw many new tricks attempted with a lot being landed for the first time for many riders. The sun came out in full force and summer finally showed us it was still going to stop by this year.
