Just a quick little question, why is there no poster girls in the wakeboard magazines. If you buy moto X mags there are bike girls. whys isn't there any board girls or even Reef girl posters.

I actually want to see more womens riding content. Not posters. Less objectivity and more equal representation.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Alliance has a chippy in the back of every issue on their "Girl Page". While it's not a poster, you can still admire the hotties for the scenic spendor they supply. Just get a bunch of back issues, tape a bunch together, and you'll have your very own one-of-a-kind popouri hottie poster. That may be a stupid idea (okay, it IS a stupid idea)but it is the closest you're gonna get, at least for now, anyways.
As for making it a poster, it's most likely a matter of simple economics and market competition. There are more bike mags so they often use a "perk" like a hottie poster to sway prospective comsumers to buy or subscribe to their magazine. It also is a considerable additional cost to print and insert 50,000 posters into a magazine. For the size of the market and subscriber base in the wakeboarding scene, it is too high a price to pay just for either magazine to print a hottie poster at their own expense. Trust me, they want to hook up their readers but it's expensive!!
Jeffrey, as for getting more women's coverage, that's where you, the readers, CAN make an impact. Find the email addresses for the editorial teams of your favorite magazines and tell them you'd like to see more women's wakeboarding in their pages. They certainly want their magazines to reflect the desires of their readers, so let them know what you want. If there's enough support I assure you you'll see more of what you're asking for.

Speaking of the number of magazines for wakeboarding, what are some other wake magazines besides Wakeboarding Magazine or Alliance?

SBC Wakeboard has been coming out with some pretty hot issues lately. They only do 2 issues a year but it's a solid mag from an editorial perspective- Not just a big advertisment like Wakeboarding...

Or ORRRR, you could get your little x-acto knife and cutout ever little reef tookis you can, and make your own "collage de tush" for your wall.
