Media Day – The Gathering

With winds forecasted to be gusting into the 30s throughout most of the day on Wednesday, event organizers decided to meet in the evening when the wind starts to back off. Riders slowly trickled into the Hood River Marina and the junior athletes were excited to get advice from many of the KPL pro-riders in town for the Patagonia Hood Jam.


Hood River Junior Jam riders were excited about hitting the park after greatly progressing during the competition. The media team separated into different features and worked with riders to get unique shots.

Progression Session

Athletes learned how to work with a photographer and videographer to stack media. KPL riders also coached athletes on how to get better hits. The stoke level was insane on the water!
