We also have some sweet shades starting at $36 including some closeout polarized pieces to protect those eyeballs in style.
Need a new rope or vest? How about 20% off all wake accessories at the register?  The sale isn’t just wake either, we are including men & women’s lifestyle as well as swimwear so you can outfit yourself for any summer occasion be it the lake, beach or BBQ with your buddies.

Wakeboard Summer Dreaming Staff Pick

Share Button

Summer Dreaming Staff Picks- comin’ at ya! Working at evo is like working at a chocolate factory: you are around chocolate all day, it’s just begging to be sampled (by you), you don’t really NEED to eat chocolate all day, but you would if you could. If our products were made out of chocolate we would all be in trouble, luckily they aren’t. But being around new gear all the time is as tempting as smelling delicious chocolate all the time. Summer Dreaming Staff Picks is like if you ate all that chocolate but didn’t pay for it, financially or health-wise.

What Would You Do For Free K2 Skis For Life?

Share Button


How far would you go to win free K2 Skis for life? Would you “huck the meat” or “pound coke”? Make sure you watch the video below so you don’t think that’s a drug reference or anything else. K2 Skis gave away five hidden golden tickets last year in their skis, a la Willy Wonka, that won a Charlie-Bucket-like contestant free skis for life. Everyone else, on the other hand, got a pair of custom skis that they made at the K2 factory. Better than being turned into a blueberry. Watch the video below as Seth “Wonka” Morrison has these five contestants compete in different challenges to see who is the true winner of skis for life.

Wakeboard on a Budget: The Art of Hitchhiking

Share Button


Wakeboarding is pretty fun, but unless you own a boat or know someone with a boat it is hard to spend enough time to progress. Here are some tips on how to wakeboard on a budget. A lot of these are basic principles you might be familiar with if you were hitchhiking or party crashing, we are just applying them to a lake environment.

Stand Up Paddles Boards Now at evo Seattle: We Know WhatSUP

You may have already thought that we were pretty hip and relevant, but now we know whatSUP as well. Now arriving at evo Seattle- Stand Up Paddle Boards. We have everything you need to get out on the water- boards, wetsuits, paddles, board bags, life vests, car rack accessories, even sunscreen. If you haven’t tried SUP’ing yet and are looking for an athletic, fun way to get out on the water this summer, then this might be just the ticket.

You may remember our Summer Shape Up Post last week about Stand Up Paddling- even if you live too far away from the ocean, or it scares you, you can SUP on a lake, the sound, or even a river. You could even paddle around a pool if you wanted to.

Go Skateboarding Day 2011- Seattle Recap

Share Button


IMG_3961

Go Skateboarding Day is June 21st, but that doesn’t mean that is the only day you can “go skateboarding”. Just because you can’t shred the park with the young kids, that doesn’t mean you can’t get on a skateboard. Cruise to the coffee shop, do a morning skatepark session when it’s empty, or just longboard down the bike trail- it’s all skateboarding. In Seattle, we take Go Skateboarding Day pretty seriously. This year everyone met up at the Seattle Sea Skate Skatepark for some BBQ, skating, and fun then headed down to the Marginal Way Skatepark afterwards on a party bus.
