Who is Chase Hazen riding for now.
Doesn't look like he rides for shred stixx anymore. Hard to beleive the best wakesurfer doesn't have a board sponsor.

L.F. with Dominic Lagace.

Anybody know when his new board will be coming out?

durty_curt 04-09-2012 12:44 PM

does anybody have footage of him riding?

ragboy 04-09-2012 12:45 PM

I just interviewed him, and he talks about working on his new board. Will be out in a couple of days.

So is LF serious about building real wakesurf boards now or what?

aiggy33 04-09-2012 2:46 PM

He rides for Tige Boats.

Wow, I thought I had read that went to Tige. I wonder why he left Centurion?

Just google or youtube chase hazen wakesurfing. Tons and tons of videos. Chase could probably out surf me on a trash can lid:)

I always thought Chase rode for Shred Stixx ( <--hey, I spelled it right. ;-) ) and SS had centurions, I am not sure if he officially rode for SS, I know in the photo shoots and stuff I don't think he was there for Centurion. Not really sure though.

As far as Tige, he went riding with us in the Fall behind our 24Ve.


He rode amazing as usual, but he also really liked the wake, and this was not the first time he rode with us, and he also rides a lot with Dom behind and RZ2. He was talking about his love of teaching wakesurfing and desire to do that more and more but wanted a boat that could switch from side to side as easily as we do, with a great wake. He asked me if Tige was looking for riders. I told him I didn't know but I knew how to find out. So the next day or so I made the call and set up a meeting for him and the rest is history I guess.

Him and Sean and a few others should be out again soon to tear it up behind the new Z3. Can't wait, I never get tired of seeing them from the ballast boy seat, its a privilege, no doubt.

I dont believe he ever rode for Centurion. He just rode on a bunch of Centurion boats because a few of the Shredd Stixx guys have them.

Wow. I think Robert probably mistyped that. Obviously Chase Hazen was a Shred Stixx rider. He not only rode Shred Stixx boards, but was on the Shred Stixx Wakesurf Team for many, many years. No he was never sponsored by Centurion Boats, or any other boat company for that matter over his tenure, until Tige, Wake Craft and a few others courted him this past year, in the wake of the new era of numerous boat companies starting to give some real thought and maybe even a touch of design towards generating a better wakesurfing wake.

Now speaking for Shred Stixx, we wish Chase the best of luck in his new endeavors with whatever company(ies) he chooses to ride for. I for one still feel lucky to consider him a friend, and look forward to surfing with him in the future, whether on a wake or out in the ocean.

ragboy 04-10-2012 6:51 PM

Yes, I mistyped, I meant that I am not sure he officially rode for CENTURION. My point was that I knew he rode for SS, and SS had centurions.

Sorry for the typo/brain fart.

Chaos 04-11-2012 9:38 AM

haha, the wow certainly was not directed towards you Robert. Just a clarification which would hopefully prevent future confusion and gossip.

jstieg 04-11-2012 11:13 AM

Yea I talked to him this morning actually, he says "the heck with glassy water I love the chop" he said he's been designing tubes and entering high speed whip contests, and on his spare time he designs slow speed tubes such as those used in lazy rivers. I dunno sounds like he's got a good thing goin now, I think him quitting wake surfin was the only option for him. Poor guy chase call me tonight I got some new ideas for you.
