The Alliance “You Choose” Poll
We’re introducing a new feature on Alliance Wakeskate, the You Choose polls. We’ll be doing these every so often to find out what you think about various hot button topics facing the sport of wakeskating. The way it works is simple: we’ll give you a topic and a few choices, you check the boxes and we all get to see who/what really matters. What’s the point? There isn’t one really, but isn’t voting fun?
For the first installment we figured we’d let you prove us wrong (or even agree with us) and back track a little bit to the 2009 Superlative awards. We already told you what we think and why, but this time the decision is up to you. So let your voice be heard, or at least, kill a few minutes at work. And if we didn’t provide the answer you want, well, that’s what the comments are for!
Rider of the Year
In 2009, this was no easy decision, in fact, we opted to give a shared award. But you only get to vote for one rider (and we threw in a few more worthy people for good measure,) so let us know what you think.
Rookie of the Year
Every year wakeskating gets a new crop of talented riders, and this can be one of the hardest choices to make. We did it, and now it’s your turn: which new face made the biggest splash in 2009?
Getting better at wakeskating is one of the reasons it’s so much fun. But every year a few riders just get more better than others. So this award is for them. You can see who we chose here, but you make the call on this one.
Video of the Year
Wakeskating was graced with some truly great videos in 2009, but which one did you like the best? Our award is here, but again, this is all you.
Video Performance of the Year
It takes a lot of make a great video section, people film for months, even years to do it. We already narrowed it down to one in our minds, but here are six from 2009 for you to pick from.
