Teton Gravity Research and Alliance Wake teamed up for a very cool insight on why Orlando and the surrounding areas of central Florida are considered the epicenter of wakeboarding. Some heavy hitters drop their thoughts on why they moved there or live there. Give it a watch!
In reality it’s the RedBull x Parks Double or Nothin finals lol.
It’s been a long time coming for an event like the Body Glove Moxie Pro Series. The amount of support and engagement for an all women competition like this has been absolutely incredible. Starting with the online submissions all the way to the championship stop at Terminus Wakepark, this series has been filled with some amazing riding that has shown the world that women’s cable riding has gained a new caliber of technicality and style.
Kicking off the final stop of the series, the day started off with plenty of activities including a Body Glove SUP morning yoga class, foods trucks, and free beer, which added some extra spice to the mix that made you reminisce about some of the pre-pandemic pro competitions that we all remember and love. As for the women in this contest, they knew the assignment and took it to a whole other level. You could tell from some of the practice sessions that the riders were pushing themselves and testing new lines to hopefully take home the gold. Aside from the competition itself, the level of support that each of the women competitors had for each other throughout the day was like nothing I have ever seen before. Win or lose, these women were cheering each other on and keeping the hype on the dock at an all-time high. Read More >
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 >
A winter winch mission at a familiar spot with Jeff Mathis, Cole Vanthof, and Shane Bonifay assisting, and the results speak for themselves. It’s always cool to know about an Alliance Wake photoshoot coming up…and, if everything goes as planned, you know it’s going to be a cover shot. Congrats to Blake and the whole crew. It turned out siiiiiick. Peep the entire Digital Issue HERE!
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 >
