#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.

1) Tell us where you grew up and how you experienced the sport of wakesurfing for the first time? I am from Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada. I use to wakeboard a lot with friends and one of them Eric use to have a board shop. Then one day he came telling us that we can surf behind the boat. A Rep. who came to his shop with some older Liquid Force wakesurf board telling him to try it. We did not know anything about the speed, ballast, rope, never seen it before. After coming back from a 1 years trip to Australia / New Zealand surfing. He tells me that we can surf right here on a lake. I could not believe it! We all tried it out and we all fell in love with it enough to switch from wakeboarding to wakesurfing.

Introducing Alliance Wakesurf

Post by Alliance Wakesurf Editor Josh Sleigh

What up wakesurf world and community at large! I’m your new editor Josh Sleigh seen here with Chase Hazen at the recent 2013 Surf Expo show in Orlando, FL.  Shocked, stoked, and a realization that we are not your usual wakesurf crew. Chase made it clear checking out the new site that he is pumped on what we are bringing to the table and to see this come about. In his words, “Our wakesurf culture has been at a loss and in need of a media source to step up and take the reigns to hype it up.”
