Cobe France: Summer in Australia

Words by TeamTige Wakeboarder Cobe France

After returning from my first events in Junior Men's in the USA 2014 season, I have settled back into the Aussie life easily. Juggling school with training, and a few part time jobs to help fund my 2015 season in the USA has kept me really busy, but I have had some epic weekends at the Aussie Tige dealer, Prowake's Tige reunions. Their first reunion was at Clermont Queensland, in a little Outback town about 12 hours drive north west my home on the Gold Coast. I was lucky enough to be a part of the athlete team Prowake flew into town to run the weekend. The team includes Daniel Watkins, pro Barefooter Brendon Paige and some other Aussie wakeboarders.  When we got there, the weather was perfect. The air was warm and the water was butter. I was super excited for this event because I got ride behind the ASR for my second time. The first day we fit in a quick ride behind the ASR. The wake was awesome, it was so clean and had heaps of pop.

#TigeStories: Waking Up the Desert

Words by: Jennifer Concienne

This weekend I attended the 15th annual Wake the Desert in San Angelo, Texas. It was the third stop of the Tige Endless Wave Tour and possibly the most fun competition so far. The venue was absolutely perfect! The shore was lined with merchandise tents, delicious food, and even the RedBull Big-T. With music pumping, people smiling, and the sun shining, there was no shortage of fun. The competition course ran right along the shore of a Lake Nasworthy channel which made it easy for spectators to watch and enjoy the high level of wakesurf talent presented this weekend. I got a taste of the Texas heat with the weather in the 90’s and insane humidity the entire trip.

Dominic Lagace: Back home in Quebec

Post by Dominic Lagace

In the middle of 2013 wakesurf season, my crazy schedule brought me back to my home in Trois-rivieres. I spend most of my time camping at my friends place where we have our new Tige Z1. The view, the forest, the river, and very few people make this place perfect for training. I try to ride and train everyday while also giving lessons with Hi-5 Wake School. My trips back home always seem short since I am always busy. I was happy about my week because I could finally train and get some new tricks down. It always feels super good to work out and land something new.

Wakeboard Until You Drop!

Post and Video by: The Boat Guy Chip Hanauer

Our wakeboarding video is testimony to not getting scared of doing something you want, just because everybody says, "It's too hard," It's too dangerous," "You'll never learn it," and so on. So much of what I enjoy in my life I was told I shouldn't do, or even attempt.

GT Performance Demo Days with Ashley Kidd

GT Performance, Tige dealer in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, held their annual Demo Days and invited TeamTige and World Champion Wakesurfer Ashley Kidd to ride and give lessons during their event. This trip marked Ashley's first trip to Canada and she quickly realized what a Canadian summer looks like. For a girl from the Texas coast, it was cold and a wetsuit was a must.
