Northwest Riders Wake Series, Part Deux / by Rhys Logan

For the second year in a row the guys at Northwest Riders put down the Northwest Riders Wake Series, in which tons of local wakeboarders and wake-skaters, young and old, am and pro, threw down on some of the biggest sickest double-ups known to Washington, and mankind.  On beautiful (man-made) Lake Tye in magical Monroe, Washington, a perfect day with a PNW sunset finished off the Pro double up contest for friday night, and a mellow Saturday afternoon of several heats of riders followed for the competition.  

Kicking it (literally) in my fins and classy bright yellow mike's hard lemonade float chair, I was stoked to keep my gear dry, and land some shots I was pretty happy with.  

Don't let anyone tell you Wakeboarding is for wimps.  The vid below ought to show you.  These guys go big, and water doesn't feel good when you hit it going 40 or 50.
