Quinn Silvernale has always been one of those “actions speaker louder than words” kind of guys. He’s been constantly killing it on the board over the years as well as building up arguably the best wake park in the country, the Valdosta Wake Compound in Valdosta, GA. He’s been at the forefront of the Coalition movement and all that hard work is paying off with his new pro model board from Slingshot and cover of the latest issue! Congrats Quinn, keep it going!

The Less than 5 contest is always a breath of fresh air from the hectic contest scene over the season. We take a step back and let some of the best riders in the world get as stylish as possible and have an all around good time. Grab the mag and read up on it and then go back and re-watch the runs!

Nike and wakeskating go together like biscuits and gravy. And with some of the biggest names out there working with Nike, good things are bound to happen. Andrew Pastura, Ben Horan, and Nick Taylor rip and share some of their favorite shots of this past year so check it out!

The Alliance “Rider of the Year” goes to somebody that not only is insane on the board but embodies the true spirit of the sport. They stay hungry to better themselves on and off the water and the names who have taken home this title are known far and wide for good reason. Our 2017 ROTY is Mr. Steel Lafferty! Check out the mag to get an insight on what makes Steel tick and some amazing shots as well! Congrats Steel!
