What do you get if you put a brick of gold, chocolate syrup and a six-pack of Mike’s Hard Lemonade into a blender? Issue 8.4! The cover is literally made of gold flakes!!!! Scream at the top of your lungs!

That’s right, the day you’ve all been waiting for has finally come…A PINK cover graced by none other than the industries sassiest rider, Mr. Kevin Henshaw. Congratulations Kevin.

In this issue you can find out what Andrew Adkison has to say about baboons, busted grills, and karaoke in “Best and Worst,” then flip a few pages over to hear how wakeskate film “Linear Perspective” changed the face of wakeskating forever in Danny Hampson’s “Reason.”

The feature interview of the issue takes us inside the brain of Collin Harrington. From rollerblade jumps over Hummers to Liquid Force Films, iguanas to raley backside 1’s on the cable corners, this guy has seen it all. His hair is over 15 inches long and he plans to keep the hair farm open for business. What an awesome dude… Dude.

On page 79 you can find the Billabong team trip to the Philippines as they film for their team video. Matt Staker wrote the story so it’s definitely one to remember. Have YOU ever had a pimple on your eyelid? Find out how it feels and also visit the CWC cable park with the guys. Just be careful, there was some serious muscle on this trip. Judging by the opening spread you may mistake this one for a trip to the Philippines with the Miami Dolphins. “Flex on three!”

Next up is the Centurion trip to lake Oroville. Check out the sequence of Drew Daniello…Hot digity he’s got some skeeelio’s!

Chris O’Shea’s Pressure Cooker contest is also featured in this issue. Imagine being able to freeride with your buddies and win a prize at the end of the day. No training, no choppy water, just some dudes, bros, babes and shredding.

Finally, take a triples wakeboarding day over at Shaun Murray’s home, followed by some tumble turn instruction from the master himself.

Regardless of your credit history, Alliance has got you pre-approved to go out and pick up the new issue. Everybody reads!
