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.
