Happy Trails, Brooke…

I woke up this morning to an email from our buddy and former debate opponent Brooke Geery. She was announcing that after six years at Alliance Wakeboard Magazine, she had decided to leave and focus on her snowboard site, Yobeat.com.

If you’re so inclined, she’s written an excellent farewell letter that is definitely worth a read. I don’t know what it is about the Alliance staff, but when they leave, they do it in grand fashion (I wish I could find a link to Tony Smith’s farewell letter from a few years ago).

Along with the rest of the crew at Alliance, Brooke has been a big help over the years getting our content on their website and in front of more people than we could have ever hoped for. So thanks for all the support, Brooke. I sincerely hope that snowboarding message boards have more of a sense of humor than their wakeboarding counterparts.

(PS: I blatantly stole that photo directly from Brooke’s letter on the Alliance website. Hope they don’t mind.)

  1. Hey Brad,

    Thanks for the kind words! I don’t mind you stealing the photo, and the reason you can’t find Tony’s letter is it was in the magazine. There probably wasn’t a like button either. SO OLD FASHIONED.
