It is officially 2014 and for readers of Alliance that means the Gear Guide issue is now available. This year’s incarnation of the Gear Guide is one you don’t want to miss, especially if you are in the market for some new stuff – it is a smorgasbord of awesomeness. Of course, the first thing you’ll notice is the cover of the one-and-only Brian Grubb, shot via GoPro by Collin Harrington.

We once again brought back the signature Alliance Board Test. This one-of-a-kind project is wakeboarding’s only unbiased product review where you can get great insight into some of this season’s top new boards. We switched up the testing a bit this year and rather than using pro or semi-pro riders for the testing, we teamed up with the members of the UCF wakeboarding team – Knights Wake. Like most of you, these guys have to put some serious though into new board and gear purchases, and they don’t have any sponsorships or brand loyalties. You can be sure that their opinions and reviews of each board are as honest and straightforward as they come.

We also expanded on last year’s Boat BBQ hangout day. This year we turned it into a giant BBQ and Boat Surf day at Shaun Murray’s house. Seven boat brands provided brand new vessels for everybody to surf behind and have a blast all day long. If you’re looking at doing some more wakesurfing with your family and friends, be sure to check out one of the boats in this article.

Beyond that the Gear Guide is chalk full of all kinds of cool, new products that you’re not going to want to miss out on. Go pick up an issue and get stoked for summer!
