#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.

#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.

Nick Dietrich: A Trip to the Tige factory

Words by Nick Dietrich

To be given the honor of being one of the few to ride the all-new ASR from Tige Boats was a privilege that I will not forget. When first told of the possibility that this trip could become a reality I was both nervous and excited. Before I knew it, my flight was booked and I was getting prepared to migrate south for a short but memorable trip.
