Allyance Member Bill “Beaker” Bryan Surfs The High Seas with  NBC’s Today Show


            Millions of NBC “Today” show fans tuned in as Royal Caribbean Cruise International’s newest ship “Freedom of the Seas” set sail for her maiden voyage, a 24 hour cruise around Manhattan. Allyance team rider Bill “Beaker” Bryan was invited onboard to showcase one of the ships premiere features.

            In addition to the full size boxing ring and interactive water park, the ship features the FlowRider; the first surfing simulator at sea.  Wave House master and Allyance team extraordinaire Bill “Beaker” Bryan ripped apart the FlowRider all morning as the world’s newest and largest cruise ship sailed within the shadows of the Statue of Liberty.

Matt Lauer, Katie Couric and Al Roker  watched awestruck as Beaker showcased the capabilities of the newest simulated wave as well as his own skills all while wearing the new Allyance Patch boardshort.  The future of waveriding will never be the same!
