Erik Ruck: Wakesurfing with ‘Umphrey’s McGee’s’ Ryan Stasik

Words by Erik Ruck

If someone were to ask me what my passions are, I would have to say wakeboarding and music. This year for my birthday, I had the ultimate mix of both! One of my favorite bands, Umphrey’s Mcgee was playing for the first time in Orlando, and it happened to fall on the night before my birthday. I also had a couple of good friends and my brother in town visiting from Wisconsin. They also love wakesurfing and music!

Words by Byerly Wakeboards

Aaron Rathy's new Byerly wakeboard has dropped into shops around the world. Rathy has become a constant force in the sport and his riding style seems to evolve with every season. Since his first year with Byerly he has been working on a shape that was designed specifically for him. The AR-1 is the culmination of all the hard work and testing. The AR-1 utilizes Byerly's first Continuous rocker line to generate maximum speed into the wake with no loss of pop .The new profile allows the board to have a very responsive feel and hold a strong edge into the wake. Rathy and Butch have been working on this shape for three seasons and now it is ready to rip.

10 Questions with Dominic Lagace

Post by AllianceWakesurf.com

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.

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.

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.

Dominic Lagace: Home Sweet Home

After all these months traveling the world, I finally came home to the lovely and adorable Quebec. Quebec is the only Canadian province that has a predominantly French speaking population. Quebec is the largest province by area and is second most populous province, after Ontario. Most inhabitants live in urban areas near the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, the capital. This is where I was born and my love for wakesurfing was born about 10 years ago. I was very happy to be back home and to see family and friends again. 
 The weather this time of the year is a little bit cool, but day by day its getting warmer and warmer. Everything looks so clean, green and super beautiful. People here are very active and its not a surprise that there is many Pro’s coming from this region of the world. 
 After traveling for so long, it always feels good to be home. And even better when there’s a new brand Tigé Z1 with Convex VX waiting for you… 
 The wakesurf scene in this town is huge. Some people wakeboard, but almost all are wakesurfers. Dominic Lagace, Eric Gignac and Philip Lemay are the owners and co foundators of the first and most popular Wakesurf School in Canada,  Hi-5 Wakesurf School. The school has been running now for 8 years and has gained a lot of acceptation from the community. 
 Every year the owners, managers and people from S3 BRSHP and the Hi-5 Wakeschool, Rip Curl and Liquid Force, organize a full day for test the new boards, practice new tricks, and discover wakesurfing. Everyone has so much fun on this day they are all more than in love with wakesurfing and Tige boats. 
 Every day I go to ride and practice new tricks. Its always good when the wakesurf community comes together because everyone can put something into the sport… tricks, combos, suggestions, etc.. 
 After spending a few days back home in Quebec, I headed to the 2nd contest stop of the Endless Wave Tour in Fort Collins, Colorado: the WWS Shred Fest.  
 After a delay and getting to Colorado 8 hours after the scheduled time, I finally made it. 
The location was so great and beautiful. I pulled up and there was Tige everywhere, with a big tent full of water sport equipment by WWS, a big RV, a few Tige boats for demo and some venders. All of that was located on the top of a hill about 50 meters looking over the no boat zone on the lake where they where doing the contest.  It was great place to have the contest because the lake was lower and protected from the wind. That means perfect riding conditions. 
 For their 1st time hosting the contest, Squids Wake and his crew were ready to start the weekend. There was around 40 riders and a lot of families and spectators on the site to support their friends or family riders all weekend. The ambiance was good and very laid back. I was super happy to see everyone again. 
 Their was 2 new Tige z3 in the water ready to pull out a huge wake with the new Convex VX. One boat set up on the regular side and the other one set up on the goofy side. Everybody was pretty exciting to try the new boats and new convex VX. We heard some great comments about the wake. Everybody loved it. 
 After that long travelling weekend and competing in the pro skim category, I finished 2nd in Mens pro Skim.

Wakesurfing Tips: Speed and Rope Length

Post by Greg Young with Northwest Riders

When people ask me about wakesurfing speeds, every boat (and every speedometer at that speed) is pretty different. Generally between 8 mph on the low end to 13 mph on the high end is about right, but it all depends on what your wake looks like.

Dominic Lagace: Spreading the Wakesurf Fever in Jakarta and Ukraine

Post by TeamTige Wakesurfer Dominic Lagace

I flew from Bali to the biggest city in Indonesia, Jakarta. Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and is the home to over 10 million people. Jakarta is always bustling, from the sound of the wheel of government turning to the sight of the economy churning. Skyscrapers, single story residential houses, modern apartment complexes, survivalists shanties - all coexist in this city.  2.30 hrs flight and only 1 hour time difference to Bali…

Dominic Lagace: Island Adventures

Post By TeamTige Wakesurfer Dominic Lagace

Lombok is an island in West Nusa Tenggara Province of Indonesia. It’s one of the closest islands to Bali and the flights were so cheap that we couldn’t skip out.  We booked our flight for only $20 and took half and hour to arrive at the new International Airport at Praia Lombok. Flying in we saw little lovely islands, volcanos, rice fields, and a very green Lombok. The view from the sky was more than awesome.

Chris Kinsey: The Build of a Lifetime

Post by TeamTige Wakesurfer Chris Kinsey

Within the next week, I will find myself a proud new owner of a 2013 Tige Z3. I find myself surrounded by mixed emotions upon the arrival—emotions of anxiousness, enthusiasm, bewilderment, and happiness are luminously suspending themselves over my head and holding my mind captive. Never did I think that I would become a professional wakesurfer belonging to the TeamTige Global Wakesurf Team.

Video: TeamTige and a Z1 with Convex VX

Our all new Z1 is a wave-making machine but when coupled with the patented Convex VX,  expectations are blown. TeamTige took the duo out on Lake Austin and got a pretty sick edit out of the trip.

Catching Up With Adam Errington

Post by TeamTige Rider Adam Errington

Whats up everyone! I can’t believe it’s almost summer. The season is upon us, and winter flew by. My 24ve Tige is in the shop getting some work done so I have been taking advantage of some cable riding over the past few slow weeks. This worked out perfectly, as I got an invite last minute to  a cable contest in Sao Paulo, Brazil. As soon as I heard the news that it was a Red Bull event and a night cable contest I was in! It was a solo mission for me but I didn't mind as this was trip number 5 to Brazil for me. If you haven't been to Brazil, I highly recommend it. It’s an amazing country filled with culture, great food, and even better people.

How to Get Chase Hazen’s Wakesurf Set Up

Post by Craig Kotilinek of Waterski Magazine

Wakesurfing is here to stay, and 2013 has been one of the biggest years ever in terms of wakesurf-centric boat technology. But all the gadgets in the world won't get you the perfect wave if you don't know how to correctly weight your boat. Properly placed weight, in the form of people and ballast bags, can make the difference... Ever wonder how the pros can pull off 540 shove-its and 3-foot airs? The first step is having a great wave. We went straight to the source to cut down your time experimenting with ballast so you can have more time to enjoy the swells behind your boat this summer.
