5 things wakesurfers can learn from Olympic Silver Medalist Kelsey Serwa

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.

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!

Ron and Sue Rensink, along with their children Kyle, Katy, Rachel and Jon are now 9x Tige owners!

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.”

Tige RZR: Best Wide-Bow Boat

Post by Waterski Magazine

Whether you call them pickle forks, snub noses or hammerheads, wide-open bow designs are more popular than ever in wakeboard boats. At exactly 20 feet, the RZR is a nimble performing V-drive with excellent wake versatility for a host of water sports. Set it up for open water slalom sets, wakeboarding or wakeskating and control your wakes with ease using the TigéTouch system and Taps2 technology, or utilize the versatility of the hull and load it up for wakesurfing. Inside the Tigé RZR, the layout and seating arrangements give the boat a much deeper and broader feel than most boats in its size class. All of the seat backs offer great support, and with open-bow seating and plenty of storage, it has room for everything but is super easy to tow or store.

10 Things to Check During A Test Drive

The best way to test the substance of any product is to use it. That's why the perfect test for Tige and all other inboards is on the water, and that means more than just a quick spin on a glassy lake. A good test drive should be fun, entertaining, and give you a true sense of how the boat feels and functions in all water conditions and watersport configurations. Bring the entire family along with boards and skis. Spend some time experiencing the real-world function of those stylish interiors, storage, and other features. Insist on driving theirs... And ours.

Tige Ballast System Review with WakeMAKERS

Spencer at WakeMAKERS.com

The engineers at Tige have never been afraid to innovate on the highest level. For 2013 there have been some major improvements to the design and implantation of the factory ballast system. The goal for Tige was to increase speed to reduce the time it takes to fill and drain your ballast tanks. Basically they know your time is worth something and when you are on the boat you do not need to be waiting any longer than you need to. They have blown way past that goal with the incredibly fast 2013 system.

Your Dream Boat in a Wrap

A few months ago Wet Sounds, our audio manufacturer, wanted us to create a fully personalized Z3 to use as their demo boat. From the upholstery to the captain’s chair to the old school rims to having all chrome painted flat black, everything is completely unique to fit the “rat rod” theme Wet Sounds dreamed of. They wrapped up their customization options with a Sirlin Wrap and it looked sick!
