Northwest Riders Clothing
Northwest Riders was officially started in February of 2004 in Bellingham, WA by Greg Young. The first batch of Northwest Riders Clothing was actually made a few months before that by famed wakeboard cinematographer Sean Kilgus. Sean made 20 t-shirts to bring to a Northwest Sessions wakeboard competition, intending to give most of them away to friends and sell the rest to make his money back. The shirts were more popular than expected and when Sean realized the potential to start an actual brand, he generously gave Greg the go-ahead to take the brand and run with it.
