Unfinished Business | …20 Years Later with Brian Grubb

UNFINISHED BUSINESS ...20 YEARS LATER WITH BRIAN GRUBB

Brian Grubb has arguably done more for wakeskating this past 20 years than anyone. Red Bull has done several videos with him that have helped expose wakeskating worldwide. One of the most iconic memories we have is the first cover of Alliance Wake Magazine. As Alliance is celebrating 20 years they dropped something really cool. Shane and the Pointless guys decided to recreate the old cover, but the big public reveal is he didn’t actually make that rail hit back then, but now he intends to. This is legendary on so many levels.

“With little hesitation, Brian Grubb took aim at this rail on his wakeskate and on the first attempt nearly went full-pull, sending the rest of Pointless into a frenzy. Although it wasn’t a complete “make,” the attempt alone would define not only Pointless, but Grubb’s future path. At that very same moment Grubb was stamping his mark on wakeskating, we at Alliance Wakeboard Magazine were putting together our inaugural issue – most importantly, selecting our first cover. The cover of any magazine is the most coveted, and celebrated, form of recognition in any board sport. We understood that our first cover had to be a statement. Not only as an image, but as a direction, and ultimately, a VOICE. Grubb’s attempt at THIS rail, on a wakeskate, was a defining moment not only for him, but perfectly timed for the statement and history Alliance hoped to make. For us, choosing the image was undeniable and when the cover hit there was no question: Alliance, Grubb, and Pointless were moving the sport forward in a new way. This was not only our first cover, but Grubb’s as well. Pointless would soon debut Incomplete, and Grubb would earn Alliance’s first coveted Rider of the Year award. That’s a lot of history for one move, and a magazine cover that wasn’t a make.” Read More >

2019 Alliance ROTY: Year of the Pizza Boi

How about them apples…I mean pie slices?!

Massi Piffaretti: BuyWake.com Team Rider and Alliance ROTY

Damn, this could not have gone to a better rider, better influence on our sport, or better person in general.  All your hard work on and off the water paid off, Massi.

We had our hearts set on Massi (for obvious reasons), but it’s really inspiring to hear all of Massi’s peers rallying behind such a great rider as well.

Massi had an incredible year coming off a pretty gnarly injury, and you can tell that, as soon as he received the “clear to ride” from his doctor, Massi was ready to go to work.  And, THAT HE DID!

It’s undeniable that you are a threat behind the boat and have an incredible style that continually leaves jaws on the floor when you ride, but BRUH…let’s talk about your winching and cable skills really quick.  MIND-BLOWING. Read More >

2019 Yardsale 3 at Valdosta Wake Compound

There are a few events every year that really tickle our collective pickle, and you better believe that Yardsale is one of them. The first two Yardsales were wild and filled with some of the most amazing riders from across the globe. Yardsale 3 did not disappoint, as there were some familiar faces like Liam, Wes, Anna, and several others. The riding was at a all-time high with new additions to the Sesitec 2.0 section that really made riders choose their lines wisely. Take your time to vote for best trick and stay tuned for the full video of the event!

BRAH FEST 2 – Keeping it WILD

Well of course we did it again…Brah Fest 2 returned to the beautiful shores of Lake Martin, AL and Alex’s house proved once again we need to hurry up and retire and get a lake house. With the vibes at a all time high some new crew members joined in for the fun in the sun. Enjoy the edit that Cole and Alex crushed!

“Grab your crew, gas up the boat and ice down the NOTBEERS because Brah Fest is back for another go! Heading back to Lake Martin, the boys cruised all over one of the largest man-made bodies of water in the US and rode more than they could handle. Cliff jumps, double ups and long nights made for a solid continuation of the BrahFest tradition. Give it a look and then call up your own crew.” – Alex Read More >
