Rob Carter Photo Gallery

Rob Carter is arguably one of the most stylish riders to be grown out of the Northwest. He is also one of the most under recognized riders by the rest of the wake industry media outlets. Throughout the summer Carter has been busy filming with Jared Eygabroad of Scratch Films and Spencer Norris of WIT Productions. You’ll be impressed by his riding when you watch his sections in both films set to release in late December and Spring ‘08.

This Central Oregon native deserves more support across the board from the other media outlets and sponsors. I know we will continue to lobby for it.

Scratch Films Shoots for “Godspeed” in Idaho


Posted on September 13th, 2007 by Zack | Posted in General, Media, Riders

Another summer is coming to an end. The water is getting a little colder and the days are becoming shorter. For most, this is a time of sadness. For others, it may mean a great snow season is to come. I hope with however you feel, you feel a sense of accomplishment, have little disappointment, and are leaving this summer with some really great memories. This summer for me was filled full of great times, good people, and memories that will last a lifetime. As usual the annual trip out to Idaho is always my favorite and I know everyone there was excited to end the last month of summer with a bang.

Jared Eygabroad, of Scratch Films, has presented a challange. We wanted to help him in his quest for a name for his NEW video.

“Well, it’s about that time of year to start thinking of a name for the new video and I caught myself thinking, ” That’s a lot of hard work. Why don’t I let someone else do that?” So, if you’re out there in cyberspace and can think of the perfect name for the next video, we will not only use it, but we’ll put you in the credits as the “Title Provider.” I know, I know, it’s a ridiculously HUGE honor. I’m beside myself knowing that the winner’s life will be intensely changed forever. Oh, and we’ll give you a copy of each of our videos (4 in total).” - Jared
