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.

Check out the full interview … after the jump.

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.

A Day with Liquid Force MAVEN on Lake Sammamish

Posted on August 7th, 2007 by Zack | Posted in Events, General, Media, Riders


The Liquid Force Maven Sessions have had another successful tour through the Northwest. More women were stoked on the sport of wakeboarding as a direct result of the LF women visiting dealers around the region and getting out on the water. The goal? Get women involved in wakeboarding and wakeskating that have never been exposed to the sport as well as increase the skills and passion for those that are progressing and learning each day.

Bakes Board & Ski played host to a Seattle stop for the ladies of LF recently. WakeboardNorthwest.com was on hand to document some local women getting world class instruction from a few of today’s best female wakeboarders.
