Northwest Riders Wake Series - Recap

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

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 …

We want to congratulate, Bend Oregon Native, Alex Scagliotti on his podium (3rd Place - Jr. Mens) this past weekend at the Tige Pro Am. It is his first podium of the year, but with the run he threw down last weekend… He could podium again this weekend in Phoenix at the next Pro Tour stop.

Tige Pro-Am This Weekend at Blue Lake Park

Posted on June 20th, 2008 by Bryan Myss | Posted in Events, General


This year in the absence of the Pro Wakeboard Tour Stop, which normally invades Portland in Mid-July, The Tige Pro-Am stepped up to fill the void. It is unfortunate that the PWT dropped Portland because fans and riders alike seemed to look forward to the last stop in Portland with enthusiasm and anticipation. So if you are unaware of the comp this weekend out at Blue Lake Park go check it out and support the riders. Known Northwest native riders slated to compete include Alex Scagliotti, Rob Carter, Aaron Rathy, Silas Thurman, Thomas Olson, James Balzer, and Evan Park.

All the event details are listed after the jump as well as a link to the event website and a google map of Blue Lake Park.

Watch Out Ladies …

Posted on March 25th, 2008 by Zack | Posted in General, Riders

We can’t think of any female up and comers that have more of a buzz behind them than the Hoffman sisters. These girls straight kill it behind the boat and they only seem to be getting better each time we see them. The sisters ride a lot with Northwest wakeboarders Alex Scagliotti as well as with Robby Carter…and it shows. They are constantly being pushed, leading them to learn new tricks making them more competitive, all while getting more stylish.

Follow the link for an interview with the girls … after the jump.

Take a Peek with “One Eye Shut”

Posted on November 27th, 2007 by Zack | Posted in General, Media, Riders

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with W.I.T. Production’s front man Spencer Norris and ask a few questions about his upcoming film “One Eye Shut.” Norris has been filming with some of the Northwest’s top talent as well as some rippers from Florida and other areas across the US of A. The film is the follow up to his freshman effort “The Arrival” and by the looks of it, will be a great addition to the young filmers resume.

Alex Scagliotti Talks About ELEVATE WAKEBOARD CAMP

Posted on November 8th, 2007 by Bryan Myss | Posted in Events, General, Riders


Northwest Rider Alex Scagliotti, a staple rider from Central Oregon, took some time to write up a blog about ELEVATE Wakeboard Camp which he coaches at throughout the summer months. WakeboardNorthwest strongly recommends you check this camp out and book your session for next Summer. ELEVATE Wakeboard Camp runs on Prineville Reservoir during the summer and on Lake Billy Chinook (for an all ladies camp).

“I have been lucky enough to be with the camp from the beginning, the ground level. When the organizer, Gregg Garretson, contacted me and asked me if I wanted to be a coach for this brand new wakeboard camp, I jumped on the opportunity right away. I knew that there had been an Elevate Snowboard Camp and had heard from friends that it was a blast, so I was stoked to hear they were breaking off into wakeboarding as well. With the growing interest of this relatively new sport in central Oregon, I knew it was only a matter of time until someone stepped up and spearheaded this new movement; Elevate was that pioneer.” - Alex Scagliotti : ELEVATE Coach & Rider

Spencer Norris of WIT Productions : Photo Gallery

Posted on October 28th, 2007 by Bryan Myss | Posted in General, Riders


After a successful debut film, The Arrival by WIT Productions, Spencer Norris has been diligently filming his second video throughout the Summer and into the Fall. Known by the riders for some of his random on location antics including his patented cut off jean shorts and t-shirts, his strong obsession with his Hydrodyne, or body surf sessions with his trusty chase boat driver AJ…. Norris is without a doubt a young film maker that will continue to bring us wake videos in the years to come with Northwest style.

Did you know Spencer could wakeboard ? He not only can ride but he’s got style. Check out a few riding and lifestyle photos in a newly added photo gallery after the jump.

Alex Scagliotti had another great season this year. He rode the Pro-Tour, took the WWA Series, competed in numerous local comps held in NorCal, and even had time to film this summer with Spencer Norris of WIT Productions. However, just shortly after returning from our filming trip to Central Washington Alex was struck by a virus that put him on bed rest. He was unable to compete at the INT Nationals this past week and Tige Open which he was planning on riding in to finish up his season.

The WakeboardNorthwest Staff and fellow Northwest Riders wish Alex all the best and pray for his quick recovery.

Check out the gallery of Alex that was shot during the WIT Productions Filming trip to Central Washington a few weeks back.
