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!

Hazed & Confused, Part 1

Hazed & Confused, Part 1: Texas

The crew (Rocker Steiner, Tom Fooshee, Jimmy LaRiche, Bret Little, and Tyler Sommer) meets up in Texas at the Steiner Ranch for a long trip to Florida.  They kept it pretty local for the first three days, hitting the two tower in the backyard, making trips to the lake, and banging out a couple winch spots.  They’re off to a pretty good start.  Stay tuned for Part 2.  Watch part one HERE.

Nike’s No Worries – Wakeskating Video

Well if you are like us you have been waiting on this video from the Nike Wakeskating crew!  The boys built a custom feature down at Valdosta Wake Compound and essentially made all wakeskaters world wide want to go there!  Sit back and watch nine minutes of some of the heaviest tricks done on a wakeskate from the best riders in the world.

From Alliance Wake:

“No Worries takes you into a week in the life of the Nike Wakeskate Team at the Valdosta Wake Compound. The team consisting of Nick Taylor, Ben Horan, Andrew Pastura, Yan Lecomte, and Austin Pastura spent a week riding the entire park focusing on a Nike specific spot of the park built by our very own Ben Horan with help of other friends in the wakeskate community. After an amazing road trip for our last team trip we chose to partner with the Valdosta boys and focus our efforts on one spot which will be a permanent fixture to the VWC park. Give these guys one week in any spot and you are bound to see some of the most amazing wakekskating ever. Put them on a perfect spot built by riders and this is what you get. Enjoy and we hope to see you at the park soon. Read More >

Cole Vanthof “Leftovers”

Cole had a killer 2015 season and was in a ton of videos including all of “The Coalition” series.  Even though Coles season was cut short with a knee injury we know he will be back and on fire next year!  Checkout this video he put together and make sure you checkout some of the 2016 Byerly Boards that just hit the site.  Next season you can catch him riding the 2016 Byerly Buck Flex at a cable park near you.

Video Is King

 

The days of waiting ’til the end of the year for a video to drop are basically gone.  It wasn’t long ago we had to lurk the pages of Alliance Wake Mag to see images of Justin Stephens shooting a film in order to get excited for its releaseor even know that the release was coming.   Nowadays we get to stalk Sean Kilgus as he takes us through the filming process with some behind-the-scenes clips and get amped again for a physical copy to be released (Prime coming soon, yo!).  Yet I have to admit there is something absolutely magical about downloading a film like Drop the Gun.

Today, viewing content is all about the convince of my iPad and streaming video directly to my big ass TV 8 ft in front of me.  I mean…is it laziness or convenience that makes me glad that I don’t have to get up and put the disc in, or search through dozens of DVD cases to find what I want to watch because I blew it and didn’t put it back in the right case?
