A couple of weeks ago the Active Water Sports retail crew headed down to Orlando, Florida, for Surf Expo. During Alliance Wake‘s Premieres & Beers, we got to view the X Games: Real Wake videos before anyone else, and with the riders and videographers sitting next to us.

With some of the best riding we’ve ever seen in one premiere, we’re pretty excited with where wakeboarding is going. Alex Graydon’s edit premiered first and fired up the crowd quickly. The edit recently earned him fan favorite. The podium for best Real Wake edit is stacked with Felix Georgii winning the gold, Aaron Rathy taking second and Brenton Priestley in third. Check out all of the action below.
