Wakeboard Binding Closures: What’s the Best Option for You?

Laces vs. Velcro vs. Boa vs. Gummy Straps

What’s the most important part of your wakeboard set up you ask?  The bindings.

Wakeboard bindings have come a long way since the inception of our sport.  From sandal models to closed toe models and everything in between.  Along the way we’ve seen all kinds of closure systems and we wanted to break down what is going to be available for the 2018 season and help you choose the best style of binding for your riding needs!

This topic is highly subjective and based on personal preference, but keep an open mind to new things, as your next pair of bindings might be your favorite pair yet!

Laces:

Here’s your tried and true option, just like momma’s peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  You know it’s good, you know you like it, you know it works! Read More >

Q&A with Parker Borneman About the Hyperlite x Varial Surf Technology Collaboration

Parker Borneman is one of the many talents behind Varial Surf Technology, and with the new Hyperlite x Varial wakesurf boards that hit the market recently we wanted to pick his brain with a few questions.

Hyperlite x Varial Wakesurfers

BW: How did the Hyperlite x Varial partnership come about?  Did Hyperlite approach you with the idea, or did Varial already have the desire to cross over into the wakesurfing scene and Hyperlite was the brand you saw the most opportunity with?

PB: The relationship was created through a mutual vendor.  After the introduction was made the partnership was fueled by the desire to create the ultimate wakesurf board.  We were looking to find the best partner to discuss building wakesurfers, and Hyperlite was looking for the best materials and partner to build the top quality wakesurfers with – so it became a really organic connection.

Noah Flegel is on a new level. Wakesurfing with straps.

Noah has been blowing up social media for weeks posting short clips of him wakesurfing a custom made Hi-Fi with straps.  He has managed to land backflip 360’s and 720’s and he has more tricks on the way trust us.  This Saturday the PWT visits Utah and lets just say we’re already 99.9% positive this dude will be topping the podium.  Take a peak at this latest video mash up.  Unreal!

Alliance Wake Hazed & Confused: Florida Bound

Alliance Wake Hazed & Confused, Part 3

The final installment of the Hazed and Confused video series from Alliance Wake didn’t disappoint, and neither did Part 2!  The crew stopped by Valdosta Wake Compound to shred with Cody Hesse, Wes Mark Jacobsen, and Cross Bearden, and the riding goes OFF!

Getting out of Texas started off slowly with the bus breaking down, but they got ‘er fixed up then headed to Valdosta, GA, to meet up with the homies at VWC.  After two solid days of camping and good times the whole crew headed into Florida to catch a morning set at Shaun Murray‘s to finish off one hell of a trip.  Thanks Sid for driving us around and putting up with us.  Cheers!
