Sessions – Bear Day at Valdosta Wake Compound

Space Mob, Copycats and others spend a day shredding and goofing in epic fashion

November 20, 2019 was Bear Day. So the crew at Valdosta Wake Compound did the smart thing and hung out with the baddest bear around: the 2019 Wake Awards Photographer of the Year, Bryan “Golden Bear” Soderlind. While video might be king these days, there is something special about freezing a moment in time via still photo. Fortunately, Bear is smarter than the average bear, and the crew decided to mix the two into one project. Below you’ll see not only the action-packed and fun-filled photos, but also the video – with the photos integrated into the motion aspect. It is a unique look at the unique styles of the Space Mob crew, and what makes VWC an iconic wake park.
