Northwest Riders 2007 Summer Clinic Tour - Montana “Part I”

Posted on August 22nd, 2007 by Bryan Myss | Posted in General, Riders


It seems as though another summer has flown by as fast as they always do. I know that we still have another month or so left of good weather and riding, but for all of us on the Northwest Riders Summer Tour, the end of August marks the end of our days on the road. What better place to end a few months on the road than a drive thru “the Treasure State.” That’s right, I’m talking about the “Land of Shining Mountains:” Montana! In fact, the story of our trip is bigger than the Montana sky, meaning I’ve got to chop our tasty tale in two (conveniently named Part I and Part II).

Posted on August 15th, 2007 by Bryan Myss | Posted in Events, General, Riders


I know that it’s been awhile since I last wrote, and it’s not because we’ve been sitting around doing nothing worthy of writing about. The Northwest Riders Clinic Tour is still in full effect (I’m actually writing this article as we make the long drive across Montana), in fact it seems that we’ve been busier than ever. We just wrapped up our trip thru Eastern Oregon, stopping at Lake Billy Chinook to visit our friends at Madras Marine for a few days of clinics.

The filming of “DRIVE” in the Northwest started out yesterday morning with Randall Harris, Jeff McKee, and Ben Greenwood taking a set on Lake Washington. We started on the North end of the Lake, made our way to Maydenbauer Bay, and finished up with Benny G running the gut along the south end of the I-90 bridge. If you were driving along I-90 at all on Monday morning you were treated to some world class riding during your commute.

The Northwest Riders Summer Clinic Tour recently made their Lake Sammamish stop. The spots were filled both days, the weather gorgeous, and riders amp’d to learn new tricks with Pro Rider Brent Starr, Sean Kilgus of BFY Productions, and Greg Young. We also fit in a video/photo shoot with Spencer Norris of WIT Productions and WakeboardNorthwest Photographer Bryan Myss. Both Bret V and Thomas Olson took a set.

If you have not signed up for a clinic, do so now because spots are filling up quickly. This is a summer wakeboard clinic you do not want to miss out on.

It feels as if the wake season is “officially” here. Friends have been gathering out on the water for a few sets early in the morning before work and afterward, wakeboard camps and clinics have started, and other grassroots events are just weeks away.

The WakeboardNorthwest staff joined a couple of NW Riders and friends out on Lake Sammamish for a morning set recently. Joining us were Brandon Robins, Chris Craig, Sean Kilgus, and our local BAKES Pro-Shop gal, Bess.
