Tige convex vX - new surf hull


Recommended Posts

Looks like this is tige's latest surf revolution...maybe not a direct answer to surfgate but the wave looks very comparable (if not bigger, I hate to say). Looks very interesting nonetheless and I'm looking forward to learning more.

I'm surprised nobody has posted about this yet (that I could find). Anyone have more info?

Not to worried about the look, since it's in the water most of the time, but he only talked about surfing with this design. How is the wake and is it altered when you want to wakeboard? I would imagine that the wakeboarding wake is not that great with the 2ft extension?

At least with surf gate, the boat has an awesome wake for boarding or surfing.

It says the wakeboard wake is not affected and I agree its ugly but rarely visible. Looks easier to DIY than surf gate...curious to see what comes of it.

Biggest downfall does seem to be the time to switch from side to side for listing.

I don't believe that it has zero effect on the wakeboard wake. It's like a giant trim tab pushing the transom up, so I would imagine you need to add much more weight to the rear to achieve the same size/shape wakeboard wake. It probably makes the wakeboard wake a bit wider as well just like a longer boat would.

For surfing, you would still need to list the boat with lots of ballast, so I don't see it taking anything away from surfgate sales.

I'm no naval engineer but have a hard time believing that thing is directing water when the water has to hit the Taps 2 wakeplate first. I like this vid better...

Notice the Centurion Sticker on the bottom of his board..I lake it he rides for Centurion not Tige?
