Valdosta Wake Compound – Yardsale

What a Weekend!

 

We just returned from arguably the best pro wake contest we’ve ever been to: the Slingshot sponsored event properly titled Yardsale held at Valdosta Wake Compound.

This invitation only event was run on a Sesitec System 2.0 course set up unlike anything we’ve ever seen!  With one day of practice and three full days of Best Line, Best Feature, and Best Trick, there was no lack of bangers.  Our close friend Jeff Mathis took some incredible images that we wanted to share.  Watch the video now!

UNTAMED UnCut – Blake Bishop

Untamed UnCut

Blake Bishop and Cole Vanthof teamed up with us and Ambush Board Co. to produce a unique video that showcases Blake and his unique style.  The entire project only took a month.  They found unique winch spots that no one has hit before.  And…of course, Blake was destroying his home park in between winch missions.  The final UNTAMED video has yielded over 26,000 views and this new UNCUT edit with never-before-seen clips is sure to generate the same kind of buzz.

Alex Graydon “ALa-Cruzin” UNCUT Edit Video

Alex and Cole produced one of the heaviest online videos of 2016.  The video, “ALa-Crusin” was released in Orlando, FL for the 2016 Surf Expo inside the Alliance Wake booth.  To date the video has over 5,700 views and is still the talk of the town.  Take a peak at some of the never-before-seen footage and some super heavy spills and thrills.  Space Rocket Shapes FTW.

2017 Slingshot Terrain Video with Quinn Silvernale

You’re going to like this we promise.  Our Team Rider and co-founder of Valdosta Wake Compound Quinn Silvernale gives us his take on the 2017 Terrain that he rides.  Slingshot really stepped it up this year with the new Ballistic Park Base and made the board almost indestructible.  Cole Vanthof headed down to VWC to get Quinn doing what he does best so watch the video and make sure you choose your size and binding combo wisely.

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.
