I'll let Robert post up the finish order and other details but I have a few pictures of the podium, and on my laptop some photos of the event. If you didn't attend, you may start kicking yourself now! :) Great event.

One of the new divisions was the Tandem class - two folks on the board. Dennis and Adriana did the "heavy lifting" and the little kids did the cute. :) At the end of her first pass little Sophie told the judges that she was "going to kill it". And watching little Jessie to the superman was worth the price of admission alone.

If you got 'em, feel free to post 'em.

The last one I have is of the dam and bridge going over it - one lane and I think there is wood involved!!!!!!!

This weekend was amazing. I met some really cool people and had a great time.
All the riders killed it. Wake9 did a great job with the event. I cant wait for the next one.

Next time I plan on competing and hopefully can get my sister to come to compete in open women.

majestic 05-17-2010 7:22 PM

I had a great time this weekend got to meet some great people, Help out Robert with the event, watch some incredible riders, try out lots of boards and get some expert advice from many including my favorite, Dennis Horton (Thanks Dennis much appreciated)!

Can't wait for next year!

Mitch if you are the same Mitch from CalMarine I will be calling you this week to order my Walker board.

scottnaz 05-17-2010 7:42 PM

Incredible effort with the ustream video.... something to really build from.
We took a short road trip on Sunday to a graduation party so I downloaded the ustream app for my iphone, set the phone on the dash, and we watched what we could of the comp while we cruised down the highway.
Isn't technology great!?!?!?

surfdad, the tent......WTF??? Did someone really sleep in that thing?

surfdad 05-17-2010 8:20 PM

YES! Isn't that sick! It's a BBQ and living quarters all wrapped up into one - it had a stereo, propane, tools - remarkable.

ragboy 05-17-2010 9:51 PM

I have official pics of the podiums, and one in boat pic for each rider, will be up tonight. Photographer accidentally missed getting me a couple, and I don't want to put up partial, all or nothing! He should be home from a long drive and getting to me soon. It was also nice to get some sleep today.

Thanks for all the feedback, and the broadcast will only get better. The video from the in boat cameras is fantastic though, can't wait to start uploading that, will take most of the rest of the week.

dennish 05-17-2010 10:00 PM

Chris thanks for the props. I really enjoy helping people improve their wakesurfing.
Thanks also for all your help at the contest. We couldn't do contest without the help of a lot of volunteers.

2010 Wake9.com/Tige Spring Wakesurf Festival Official Recap
 
OK, so here we go with the official pictures and such. What a great time had by all. Special thanks to Tige and the boats. They were incredible. The pictures you will see are all from the SAME boat, both goofy and regular, the contest was pulled by one boat. It wasn't the plan, but we damaged a boat and so we went for it, knowing the 2010 Tige RZ2 would produce the same great consistent wake on both sides. Dennis, the Wakeologist, basically weighted the boat the same for both sides and just switched over. Towards the second day, we were switching in minutes. Hats off to Tige for there great automated ballast, and we just added some lead to that.

Special thanks to Cal Marine Sports for the giveaways, all the help and support. Special thanks to Jeff and Judy Walker for allowing us to stand on there shoulders and start with a great foundation. Special thanks to the Wakesurfing ambassador that is Sean Cummings, and Wakeshredder. Special thanks to Ski Supreme for allow us to do demos on their new V226. Special thanks to Chris Martinez, and everyone else that helped so much. Special thanks to Larry Mann for allowing us to give away a FAE system. And special thanks to Lake Wakes and The Walker Project for all the board demos.

First the Juniors

Then we had some amazing surfing from the pros. This class was for the riders to just try to through their best tricks, with no concern for landing them or not.

Then we moved on to the Surf/Skim challenge. This was ride one way on a surf board, and then back on a skim board. Who is the best overall rider?

duffymahoney 05-18-2010 9:42 AM

Looks like a ton of fun!

wofrankwo 05-18-2010 10:03 AM

the entire weekend was awesome!! great thanks to robert and his family, dennis and all those who helped make this the great success it was!! my son had such a great time meeting all the greats ..... we were out on my boat all day friday and saturday, pulling my entire family and alot of different people riding demos that had no boat ( i think i pulled 7 or 8 different people )

i missed out riding in any of the new boats or surfing behind them or demoing any different boards ...... my daughter had big regrets not competing ...... but it was trully alot of fun for me and my entire family!!!

definetly cant wait until next year!!!! Thanks to All who made it happen!!!

inland_surfer 05-18-2010 12:45 PM

Great pics. Guys !!

gunz 05-18-2010 3:59 PM

Frank-Thanks for the pulls,and lettin me hang with you guys on Friday,and sorry I had to bail.
Watchin the kids ride is almost as much fun as actually ridin,they all looked like they were havin fun.Katie really looked comfortable on that Lakewakes 5.2
Congrats to Chris,I knew he would do well.

taft 05-19-2010 4:08 PM

Great job to all those that helped put the competition on, it looked like a really good time. I wish I could've made it down, but considering how well things went I'm sure I'll have another opportunity to experience it next year.

dennish 05-20-2010 4:46 PM

My turn to thank everyone that helped me at the event. Thanks to Judges: Jeff Walker, Kit Howell,Mike Armstrong,Jeff Wahlers of Soulcraft Wakesurf Boards out of Idaho,Breanne Horton and Mitch Lemos. Special thanks to Josh Howell who did all the driving without a bimini for shade. This is high on the list for next year.
The BBQ crew was lead by Roger Stratford and Toni Wolters, Frank Wolters, Roger's son sorry I forgot your name. Amy garcia cooked the Chili and Beans.
Thanks also to the board manufacturers who sent boards for demo: Soulcraft Wakesurf Boards, Lakewakes, Inland Surfer and The Walker Project. Special thanks to Danny Guiterrez and Ben Pigeon from Tige Boats for allowing me to setup the boats for the photo shoot and the contest. 30 minutes before the photo shoot they give me the boats and say "make them great but hurry as we are losing the perfect light". Fortunately the RZ2 is an easy boat to weight and the wake we had for the photos was really good. I wish I could have had time to ride behind them.

majestic 05-20-2010 8:14 PM

Dennis- Come up to Washington in July and with a few hundred more pounds I am comfident my 22ve will give you the similiar effect. Plus I can get a few more pointers!

dennish 05-20-2010 9:53 PM

Chris are you talking about me adding a few hundred more pounds? Might make it up there.

majestic 05-21-2010 7:11 AM

No I am only running 1000lbs right now so I would need a few hundred more to get equal to the contest boats, and your weight would just be a bonus!

ragboy 05-23-2010 5:20 PM

ok, so I have been posting tons of images, and the contest video. Right now, there is only one contest video, but 2 more are done, and will be posted later today. Too much to post inline, but there are some amazing images. I spent the money so that all of the photos would be freely usable, you just have to keep the watermark on them, bull images are available under the creative commons license. You can follow us on twitter if you want to get updates as I post more images and video, still lots of video and images, every rider will be fully viewable.

The images of the expression session are up, they are amazing, and there is a "Prepare for Takeoff" photo gallery, that shows Walker, Hazen, and Stieg getting aire that is UNBELIEVABLE.

All can be found here:

http://wake9.com/festival

I will post just 3 images from the "prepare for takeoff" slideshow, since they blow me away. Look at the height of the rider, and the height of the tower.

Sick air!

wakesurfermike 05-24-2010 6:34 AM

Dude! That last shot of James from the chase boat is AWESOME! Great job on the photos Dave! If these are the shots you are letting go now, the "keepers" must be absolutely amazing. It looks like Tige got their moneys worth on this one.

ragboy 05-24-2010 8:58 AM

We are not holding back. One of my goals was that we were going to let out the best of the pictures to the community to help show all how great wakesurfing really is, and how good these guys really are, and of course, that Tige is a world class Surf boat.

ragboy 05-24-2010 9:28 AM

Here is the first video with James and Chase and Johnny going at it in the Expression Session. Johnny really took the "no holds barred" approach and was going for the gusto. Chase was a bit off on his game on this one, but then came back during the mens open and landed his best stuff.

http://wake9.com/blogs/2010-wake9-ti...ssion-session/

jeanwagner 05-25-2010 9:29 AM

Fantastic event - Tigé is glad to be a part of it! Weather was perfect, pictures are great and the camaraderie was fantastic!

notsobueno 05-25-2010 1:39 PM

Photographing is quite easy actually, when your subjects are Walker, Hazen, Stieg, Fair, Chmel, Cummings, etc.
Thanks everyone for the kind words on the photos.

ragboy 05-25-2010 11:06 PM

Great job Dave.

Masters division video is now posted.

Nice video RB, RJ sure looks like he's havin fun clownin you! Hey I'm just curious, what were your age requirements for the Masters division?

ragboy 05-26-2010 10:58 AM

I think the official rule is "older than dirt". Just kidding ;-) . 40 and over I believe.

tonyv420 05-26-2010 11:23 AM

ya thats my motto older than dirt / old bald guys. Still tryin to convince the NWWSA to change theirs LOL. they are running 50 and over

surfdad 05-26-2010 12:52 PM

Old folks rule!

tonyv420 05-26-2010 1:11 PM

got that right, J dubuya !

leaks 05-26-2010 1:20 PM

I like that 50 and over thing :) Jeff, it wont be long until Judy is on the top podium.

tonyv420 05-26-2010 1:40 PM

Oh yea , I do believe Judy has been there looking down on Jeff before LOL

ragboy 05-26-2010 1:44 PM

I love watching Judy surf. She is just doing her thang. A true family activity.

surfdad 05-26-2010 5:08 PM

It's true! Judy has a bunch more tricks than me, mostly because she can BEND at the waist! I can't tell you how limiting it is to only be able to LOOK at your feet! :) Judges, for some inexplicable reason, are not impressed with that! I mean, I should score highly just from surfing with an extra 50 pounds around my waist! :)

ragboy 05-27-2010 11:43 PM

Ok, so here is the video for the amateur men, some good surfing. Check out Chris Wolter and his debut at 3rd place!
