Tige Boats Releases the All-Empowering TAPS3 Surf System with the Surf Link Remote

ABILENE,TX -- Since its origin, Tige Boats has adapted to the nature and demands of watersports by refining the art of wake control. In response to the rapid growth of wakesurfing and a strong demand for both convenience and quality, Tige Boats has released their latest technology—the TAPS3 Surf System with the Surf Link™ remote. “Over the past 25 years, Tige has been recognized as the most versatile inboard due to our TAPS technology,” stated Charlie Pigeon, CEO of Tige Boats. “Just like the original TAPS System tailored slalom wakes and TAPS2 gave wake control to wakeboarders, our third generation, TAPS3 has led Tige to be the most advanced wakesurf boat in the world.” TAPS3 gives wakesurfers the ability to adjust the length, height, shape, and style of their surf wave, while also going side-to-side, all with the push of a button on the Surf Link Remote. While also working in tandem with the TAPS3 surf technology, Tige Touch2, Indmar Raptor Series, Surf XL Ballast, and the ConvexV Hull, TAPS3 intuitively connects riders to their surf wave like never before.  TAPS3 is currently available on all 2016 models. For more information on TAPS3, visit tige.com/taps3 or visit your local Tige dealer.

Cobe France: Taking the US by storm

Words by Cobe France

I recently competed at the Moomba masters in Melbourne Australia. It was a really fun event which is regarded as the Water ski / wakeboard event attracting the biggest crowd attendance in the world with up to 200,000 people lining the banks on finals day. This has been a major international water ski event in the past but has included Wake boarding in the past few years.  With only 8 spots allocated for the Junior Men’s class the Australian riders had to qualify as 2014 Moomba or 2015 Australian Open podium winners. My 2nd place in the Australian Open won my spot in the 8 riders. The 6 Australian and 2 USA Moomba riders will all be competing on the 2015 Junior Men Pro tour.

Useful Tips from Chris Kinsey, Part 2

WIPING THE BOAT DOWN Wiping the boat down is the task that not many people enjoy doing. The frequency of wiping your boat down completely depends on where you ride. The lake I ride on requires my boat to be wiped down every time. The water in the lake is dirtier than most and leaves calcium like water spots if not wiped off. Different colors also dictate the amount of cleaning you have to do. Lighter colors hide buildup well whereas darker colors are tougher to keep clean. I’ve used very many different types of sprays and waxes but the cheapest and most effective way to get rid of buildup is a vinegar and water solution. I have put every commonly used boat cleaner to the test; so far, vinegar and water always comes out on top. After I strip the boat of the buildup, occasionally, I will put on a coat of wax to help keep the hull clean. I have found that applying a small coat of wax after removing the water spots drastically reduces the amount of cleaning that is required for next time. Water spots have a tendency to build up if left on the hull of your boat. If the water spots are allowed to build up, it makes getting them off much more difficult and creates a foggy like stain on the hull of your boat.

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.

After a very busy season we flew to Guadalajara, Mexico to spend a few days with Marina’s family and friends. It’s such a big city that is full of so many different things to do. In fact, it’s the second largest city in Mexico. Every time I come back to visit I see new things, new buildings and constructions, but at the same time everything is still feels the same—in a good way. Chill people and cool vibes make this town full of young energy, music festivals, and bars, and there’s amazing food everywhere—it’s just crazy! We love to eat and I especially like Mexican food. The taquitos on the street are just unbelievable as well as the birria, tortas, tequila and mezcal.

#TigeStories: Bruce Cook

Bruce Cook is a 26-year-old Canadian motocross rider who earlier this year suffered a serious spinal injury while attempting a double front flip at the Nitro Circus Live Tour. He is confident about his future and is working hard to get better through going to rehab so that he can get back on his bike and get back to doing what he loves. This guy’s ambition is incredible—he recently got on a Tige boat for the first time and tried wakesurfing behind it for a film called "The Paddler Movie". Last week he was even able to ride his dirtbike for the first time! We hope the best for him in his recovery and were fortunate to be able to ask him some questions about his journey this past year.

American Adventures with Cobe France

Words by Cobe France

As with most Australian wakeboarders, I have started heading to the USA a few times in the last year. My first visit to the USA was in 2009 when I won junior boys at the 2009 Worlds in Orlando. 12 months ago I travelled to Reno for the MyWake final and the release of the awesome ASR. While I did compete in the Wake Surf event I was off the wakeboard as I was recovering from an operation to repair the patella tendon in my knee. This injury set me back nearly a year but it taught me a lot about the importance of stretching and warming up before I ride. Being a part of the ASR release was sick and this was a great chance to meet the rest of the Tige team.

The venue was absolutely perfect! The shore was lined with merchandise tents, delicious food, and even the RedBull Big-T.

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.

Rensink Family: 9x Tige Owners

Ron and Sue Rensink, along with their children Kyle, Katy, Rachel and Jon are now 9x Tige owners! In 2006, John Hanson, an employee of Tige dealer Mau Marine, introduced Kyle to wakeboarding at 12 years old. His passion for being on water grew as they became owners of a new 2006 Tige 22Ve. The Rensink family fell in love with their very first Tige and then again became owners of the just-released RZ2 the very next year. “The 2007 RZ2 is the one that got me hooked,” stated Kyle Rensink. “That summer we put in almost 250 hours and from that point on, we were fortunate that Mau would treat us very well. I now order a new boat each Fall for the following year.”

Dominik Hernler is killing it!

Post by WakeboardingMag.com

Dominik Hernler is killing it. This edit at Lake Ronix is evidence of that. So much fun to watch. Let me just say that Ronix is doing it right. They are building one of the coolest playgrounds that I have ever seen. I was privileged to be one of the few who has taken a set at their private lake. It is pretty amazing what they are doing out there. I can’t wait to see more edits pouring out of this place. Enjoy!
