Fourth annual Bake’s NWI features top level competition

SEATTLE – With thousands in prize money at stake, the area’s top riders are set to throw down at the biggest wakeboard  
competition in the region – the Bake’s Northwest Wakeboard Invitational (NWI), July 26 at Renton’s Coulon Park.

The fourth annual Bake’s NWI, a day-long double up competition, features riders such as Bret V, Nick Jones, Chris Craig,  
Rob Carter and more. Prizes are awarded for 1st through 3rd place, plus Best Trick and Biggest Air.

Twelve riders will kick off the competition at 10 a.m. where each rider will be scored individually in Round 1. After all riders  
have completed the opening round, the Top 8 riders advance to Round 2, where they will be seeded according to their morning
