Ballast Bags – More Weight, Bigger Wakes!

It’s officially spring (as of yesterday), so it’s time to get things in order for an epic 2017 season.  Go grab your ball hitch, back the truck up, and get the boat headed to the lake!  On your way down to the boat ramp, one thing to consider this year is how can you take your riding to the next level.  How about ballast?

We’re pretty sure that nine times out of ten, you automatically think about the gear you are riding – a new wakeboard, different bindings, a heavier wakeskate, a whole new surf shape, etc.  But, what about that big beauty you just dropped into the lake; YOUR BOAT!?
Makes sense right?!  More weight = bigger wakes!

Boat launch

Bombs away!

If you don’t have a ballast system that is factory installed and plumbed into your boat where everything is filled/drained by the flip of a switch, don’t fret.  You can still manually fill/drain sacs you have placed throughout your boat to achieve the best wake possible for your ride. Read More >

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.

Here is the full “ALa-Cruzin” video from Cole Vanthof, produced by Ambush Board Co.:

Guess Who? Max Van Helvoort that’s who.

You’ll want to watch this a few times

 

So we’ve all seen a few different variations of the double flip by now right?  I personally love seeing the stuff off of the double up because the amplitude is typically way higher than that of a simple wake to wake.  Don’t get it twisted thought….wake to wake behind these new Nautique G Series can flat out be ridiculously huge.  Now doubles off the kicker at the cable park have been going down for quite some time, but this new variation may take top honors.   Watch Max Van Helvoort land this mute double cork 1080 flawlessly.  Hailing from Holland and now living in Orlando,FL (wakeboard heaven supposedly) Max set the internet on fire today and we are stoked to see this trick go down…and this good looking.
