We've heard this internet thing is a big deal and all, but don't forget Alliance also puts out a magazine, on actual paper. And well, our favorite issue of the year is hitting newstands right now, it's the 2008 photo annual.132 pages of the best images of wakeskating and even a few wakeboarders thrown in.

This issue also brings the annual awards– like a wake year book of sorts we recognize all the riders who made this year really special. Be sure to check out the issue for that and see who got the illustrious Rider of the Year award (we think you're going to like it) and also keep checking the site all week for video, and our own wakeskate specific awards for 2008. Happy Reading!
