Tigé Announces Cash Prizes For MyWake Global Challenge, PCM Engines Doubles Contest Money Bringing Total Prize Purse to More Than $35K
Orlando, Fla. — Tigé has upped the ante once again and announced the prizes for the top monthly video submissions for its first-of-its-kind contest, the MyWake Global Challenge. The revolutionary MyWake contest, with a prize purse of more than $35,000, leverages the borderless virtual landscape of the internet to encourage wakeboarders, wakeskaters and wakesurfers to submit their very best run online via mywake.tige.com for a chance to win cash prizes and advance to a live two-day final competition in Orlando.
From May 1 through July 31, riders can enter three separate online contests, one in May, one in June, and one in July. Tigé is paying cash prizes to the monthly winners. Riders can enter each unique event by submitting a two-minute unedited video of their best run to Tige.com or to the event site mywake.tige.com . World Wakeboard Association (WWA) judges will review the submissions and select the monthly winners. Also, monthly winners will be invited to the live final main event in Orlando. In addition to the contest invite, Tigé is offering cash prizes for the monthly winners.
Recognizing the game-changing new format, PCM Engines wanted in on the ground level of the MyWake Global Challenge and is now doubling all Tigé prize money for the monthly winners. With the matched money from PCM Engines, overall prizes for the online and live portions of the contest are more than $35,000. The monthly prizes are as follows:
• Pro Men – $500 per winning monthly video + $500 PCM Double Money
• Pro Women – $250 per winning monthly video + $250 PCM Double Money
• Jr. Pro Men – $250 per winning monthly video + $250 PCM Double Money

“We are thrilled that PCM jumped in to sweeten the incentives of participating in the MyWake Global Challenge,” said Tigé Director of Marketing, Daniel Gutierrez. “We encourage everyone to post their best runs on the website as frequently as they’d like. Without posting, you’re not eligible for the prizes.”
A fourth finalist for each division will be added based on the video results of a Tigé MyWake Global Challenge Ride Day, held on June 16, 2012 at Tigé boat dealers around the world.
Each amateur division will pit the three monthly winners, plus the one Tigé Ride Day winner, against each other in an online final for worldwide bragging rights and other great prizes.
The 2012 Tigé MyWake Global Challenge will host the live finals event on Sept. 10-11 at Buena Vista Watersports in Orlando, Fla. The Live Finale will bring together top professional riders from pro divisions of the three sports in a pro-am style contest to battle for the top podium spot behind the new and innovative Tigé Z3.
