An example of someone wakesurfing.

Wakeboarders, wakeskaters and wakesurfers across the globe once again have a chance to claim international bragging rights with the opening of the second annual Tigé MyWake Global Challenge.

The one-of-a-kind contest, open to riders of all ages, sex and skill levels, collected video submissions between June 1 – Aug. 31 with judges selecting monthly pro and amateur winners to receive cash, prizes and/or invites to the live contest in Sparks, NV on October 4-6, 2013.

The  virtual format of the Tigé MyWake Global Challenge allowed competitors to submit a video of their very best possible run to the judges. Monthly pro winners received automatic invites to the live final main event in Sparks, NV in a pro-am style contest to battle for the top podium spot behind a new and unseen Tigé boat.

To kick-off the highly-anticipated Live Main Event portion of its MyWake Global Challenge, Tigé has partnered with Day 1 Wake team rider Trevor Miller to attempt to become the first-ever athlete to successfully complete 24 consecutive hours of wakesurfing.
