It’s hard to believe that 2013 is already upon us, and with the new year comes a plethora of new and innovative gear to take your riding to the next level.  That’s right ladies and gentlemen, without further dew, we present the 2013 Alliance Gear Guide.




With a full report on several hundred new products including everything from boards to boots to boats to skates to surfers to vests to shoes to handles to fishing poles. Wait no not fishing poles, maybe next year? Phew. Let’s just put it this way, there’s a ton of shit to check out and it’s all the latest and greatest, just in time for your morning movement, so take a sit and circle your favorites because 2013 is a new year with a new you.




One of the first things you should be circling with your pen is the new go pro 3 so you can document this epic season in style much like Collin Harrington has done on our cover. Never in a million years did photographers imagine that this little camera company would one day be producing something of such a high quality that it could be printed on the cover of a magazine. Welcome to the future friends.


We also have our biggest board test to date thanks to riders Kyle Alberts, Danny Thollander, Gunnar Schuler, Kevin Whiplinger and Anthony Hollick as they test 31 of the newest and most innovative boards to come to market. They give us the full run down on board performance between cable and boat to help you make an educated decision on your board choice for 2013. that sure was nice of them now wasn’t it?




Grab a copy of the 2013 Gear guide and make sure that mower is running strong, because the grass is about to start growing and the cash is about to start flowing. Hopefully Ms. Milly starts paying in cash instead of butterscotch candies in 2013.
