Kelsey Serwa is a hometown hero in Kelowna, British Columbia, but the leading lady around the world for Ski Cross. She is the Canadian National Champion, World Champion, X-Games gold medalist, and now an Olympic Silver Medalist! This past summer Kelsey was introduced to wakesurfing through Tige dealer Seca Marine and Okanagan Valley's wakesurf school, Surf Kelowna. "We met up with Kelsey on Wood Lake last summer and asked her if she wanted to try to wakesurf. We got the Z3 pumping out a big wave, and being the natural athlete that she is, she picked it up right away," said Kris Krillick of Seca Marine.

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.

Performance Marine Watersports in Alliance Wakeboard Magazine

Alliance: Performance Marine is on Lake of the Ozarks, Home of Brostock. What is the craziest thing you've seen at Brostock? Performance Marine Watersports: (Owner - Joe Norton) This won't make a top ten list or anything...but one of the most things about BROstock for us is the meet or greet with the riders we have at PWM before the contest. We played football, had an amazing local band, Triangle Blue, and great BBQ. People enjoy getting autographs, catching a few passes from Bob Soven and bragging on Facebook.

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.

Wake9: Convex VX Review

The crew from Wake9 came to the Tige Factory in Abilene and tested ALL of the models in the Tige lineup with a production Convex VX installed. Each boat (except for Z3 at the end) is Pro Stock ballast with just 300 lbs extra under surf side seat and five people (3 kids) in the boat. To wrap up their trip in one phrase, "The Convex VX is LEGIT!"

Ben rides behind a Tige R20 with the Convex VX and he gets one great wave behind it.  Come join Ben in Boise, Idaho for the Boise Surf This Bash on August 1-4. Check out his latest video above.

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.

Another Successful Tige Wakesurf Competition!

Photo Cred: www.dfwsurf.com

Eagle Marine, Tige's Fort Worth, TX dealer, just had their second event of the year and first annual River Round Up. We chalked this one up as a big win! The River Round Up was a combination of a wakesurf competition, concert, and camping on the Brazos River just outside of Fort Worth. We are so proud of the employees at Eagle Marine for truly living and being passionate about the Tige lifestyle. Eagle Marine's next event will be Texas Surf Throwdown on September 13-15 which will also be the final stop of Tige's Endless Wave Tour. Some pretty awesome things are in the works... You don't want to miss it!
