Tigé’s MyWake Global Challenge Tests New Waters with Virtual Qualifiers
Orlando, Fla. — Go big then go virtual: that’s how riders from around the world can earn an invite to the most progressive contest on the water, the Tigé MyWake Global Challenge. The revolutionary MyWake contest will take qualifiers to a whole new level by allowing competitors to submit their qualifying run online via video for a chance to advance to a live two-day final competition.
“This new competitive environment is truly global and follows Tigé’s history of creating new formats to push the sport,” said Tigé President Rick Correll. “We are also excited to bring wakeboarding, wakeskating and wakesurfing under one professional competition for the first time in history.”
The 2012 Tigé MyWake Global Challenge will host the live finals event on Sept. 10-11 at Buena Vista Watersports in Orlando, Fla. The Live Finale will bring together top professional riders from pro divisions of the three sports in a pro-am style contest to battle for the top podium spot behind the new and innovative Tigé Z3.
Beginning May 1, riders can enter the unique event by submitting a two-minute unedited video of their best run to Tige.com or to the event site MyWake.com. Judges from the World Wakeboard Association (WWA) will review the submissions and select monthly winners through the end of July. Monthly winners will be invited to the live final event in Orlando.
