2020 Rider of the Year: Massi Piffaretti 

The Alliance Wake Rider of the Year is the highest award any wakeboarder can receive, the pinnacle of many careers. Typically the winner is your favorite wakeboarder’s favorite wakeboarder, which makes sense as the past Alliance ROTYs have a say in the decision. For 2020, our 20th ROTY has now been crowned and the accolade goes to none other than Graeme Burress. In a year that many huddled at home and rode only with their local crews, Graeme put in an insane amount of time and energy into not just his wakeboarding but driving from cable to cable, spot to spot to ride with new people and perpetuate his wakeboarding and wakeboarding as a whole. Let’s just say Graeme didn’t hold back. Between video parts, Insta bangers, a new pro model board, YouTube vids and traveling to almost every cable in the US, he crushed it. Cheers to our 2020 ROTY Graeme Burress!
