Valdosta Wake Compound has been in the spotlight recently because of their successful Yard Sale event this year. It's also known for being the home of the Space Mob, the team that is responsible for the Coalition movie and is working on the Coalition sequel for next year.
Another original contest idea they had became the Halloween Water Wars 2017. They asked riders to dress up and compete in a new doubles format where they had to be simultaneously hitting obstacles. Needless to say, it was pretty cool to see and there was even a wakeskate S.K.A.T.E. type of event afterwards. Check out the highlights below along with a mini-interview with one of the winners, Cross Bearden.
