2010 Northwest Riders Wake Series :: 1st Annual Wakeboard Event

This event was fun…and I’m not just saying that because it was our event. I had a blast. Greg had a blast. Our volunteers had a great time. The riders enjoyed it. We also heard the same from Monroe locals (except for that one angry fisherman), the Monroe Parks Department, the City of Monroe Mayor and staff, and on and on. It was fun because all of these people made it just that. Thank you. Anyone that came out and supported us…you are appreciated.

We are sifting through tons of images which we will post here on the BLOG in the coming days. Rhys Logan (rhystomahawk.com) came out to snap photos and will have them for sale for those that were asking/interested. Until then have a look at the edited video Rhys put together and read on …

Big Perm…Nick Jones is Back

Posted on May 17th, 2010 by Zack | Posted in General, Riders

I received an email the other day from Nick Jones and I’m pretty sure I could feel how pumped Nick was just in reading the words on my screen. Since moving to Seattle in 2005, Nick has been one of the top riders that I have really enjoyed going out on the lake with and even more so, just hanging out with. As many of you know, Nick had a bad foot injury awhile back and was struggling to get back to his old self as the foot kept throwing kink after kink in his riding. Which brings us back to his email.

Nick recently landed a trick that has never been done. He dubbed it the “Big Perm,” which is a pretty funny play on the current trick named the “Big Worm” crossed with Nick’s signature curly hair that sits atop his head and has become a bit of an identifier for him.

Click over for a look at the trick…
