POTD: Seth Klinger at Woodward East


Seth Klinger 360 superman seatgrab at Woodward East.

As if you couldn't tell already by his amazing riding, Seth Klinger is a permanent resident out at Woodward Camp East. This past summer, in-between traveling and riding all the Dew Tour stops, Seth was pulling double duty back at Woodward as a camp instructor. During that time, photographer Justin Kosman came out for a guest appearance to teach Woodward's new digital photo program, and snapped this POTD of him. The final result is what you have here; Seth demonstrating to the kids what riding and living at Woodward will do for you.

"If you've never heard of Seth Klinger before last year, here is a little background on the man, the myth himself. Seth Klinger was once bitten by a werewolf. When the full moon came out, the werewolf turned into Seth Klinger. One time Seth Klinger went to a movie and it watched him for two hours. The last straw did not break the camel's back, Seth Klinger did."

"When I was at Woodward East this summer, Seth Klinger started to spin this 360 superman seat grab and all my camera equipment stood up, turned on, and shot this photo at the perfect time...no lie." -Justin Kosman
