The Boat and Wave
The Tige Z3 is the official wakesurf towboat of Wake the Desert equipped with Tige’s patented wave-making phenom: The Convex VX. With the amount of power, push, and the extended length of the wave generated by the Convex VX, your best tricks just got better because you’ll have the ability to recover and regain your push further back in the wave than ever before.

• August 1-4 – Seca Surf Sessions – Wood Lake, Kelowna, BC Canada
