The Liquid Force MAVEN Women are back in the Northwest for 2 days this week in collaboration with Active Water Sports to bring you the 2008 MAVEN Sessions Summer Tour. Andrea Fountain, Barrett Perlman, and Hayley Smith will be the coaches for the next 2 days here in Portland. Yesterday, while at the Tige Pro Am, I talked with Barrett and Andrea and they mutually expressed their excitement to return to the Northwest for this part of the MAVEN Sessions Tour.

Maven Session Event Details The Maven Sessions are a nation-wide tour of wake sports clinics for women and girls taught by the Maven Pro athletes. We invite all ages and levels to join us! This will be the 3rd year of the tour and it keeps getting better! Last year’s tour we met over 800 ladies ranging from ages of 4 yrs old to 61 yrs old. We taught a few girls their first inverts and got hundreds of beginners up on a wakeboard for their very first time. Our goals in the Maven Sessions are to grow your confidence on the water, teach you proper body position to help you progress, educate you on board shape and design, and to help you network with other local girls who love to ride.

Each session is 4 hours long and we cap the boats at 6 attendees per session so you get plenty of time on the water and one-on-one instruction. We start off the Session with some board shape education so you can walk away with savvy and confidence in choosing your own set-ups for the future. We will have our complete line of 2008 LF Maven gear which includes 5 different board shapes in 13 sizes, 7 different bindings in 13 sizes, one wake skate.
After we get everyone “educated” and set-up we pile in the boats or head to the cable for some serious learning and even more serious fun. We will finish off the session by watching the Maven Pros ride and then close with photos and autograph signings.

Morning sessions are from 9am-1pm or 10am-2pm. Evening sessions are from 2pm-6pm or 3pm-7pm (please check the online schedule carefully). **Please show up as promptly as you can. (Certain locations allow for flexible arrival/departure times, some do not)

We suggest you bring:
- Bathing suit, possibly wet suit if you prefer
- Hat
- Sunscreen
- Water bottle
- Towel
- Life vest if you prefer your own (we have some)
- Energy!

IMPORTANT: Please be aware of local laws and provide flotation devices for young children as we are not equipped with enough to guarantee all attendees a life vest that the local law may require. For example in the state California all children under the age of 11 must wear a CGA vest at all times. Thank you!

**As you register please notice which date and either AM or PM session you are choosing. **Details and direction to the site will be included in your confirmation letter as well as contact info.

We’re looking forward to meeting you! See you on the water!
