2016 Surf Expo – Premiers and Beers and Gear

BuyWake.com Does Surf Expo

Once a year major players in the wake, surf, and skate communities travel to Orlando, Florida, for the madness that is Surf Expo.  Every established brand is there and every new brand with their new product is there to say, “Hey, look at me!”  As the well-established wake-specific ecommerce business that we are, we do our part and attend for a few reasons.  This year one of the biggest reasons to attend was to be a part of the Alliance Wake Premiers and Beers video releases.  Our team rider and up-and-coming videographer, Cole Vanthof, has been working on a few projects that we and Ambush Board Co. wanted to share with the world.

The main video is the final project of a series from the boys down at Valdosta Wake Compound.   The Coalition web edit series that the boys did this past year was hot fire…so it only made sense to made The Coalition The Movie.  Cole not only had his hand in filming, but he also had some sick riding in it as well.  Next up was a video project we did with team rider, Alex Graydon.  Cole spent two months with Alex filming all around his home in Alabama.  Yes, Alabama has some pretty sweet lakes, and Alex has a home Sesitec 2.0 setup called The Woods.  The appropriately titled ALa-Cruzin was a huge success and everyone in attendance went wild.  You can now view it in its entirety HERE on Alliance.  Another video project Cole had been working on was with team rider and rising young buck, Blake Bishop, fittingly titled UNTAMED.  Cole and Blake filmed at #BTOWNCOMPOUND, Blake’s personal cable park, and hit some heavy winch missions from the Atlanta streets to the Allatoona creeks.  It’s a super diverse video and the crowd’s reaction was at an all-time high!  Everyone was feeling the film and its trap track that went so perfectly with the edit.  If you know Blake, then you’ll understand the music no doubt.  Alliance Wake will be dropping the full-length part on Monday, September 19th, so…get ready.
