ABILENE, TX—Team Tige Wakeboarder Shaun Faccio and Wakesurfer Dominic Lagace are conquering wake competitions globally. Wins for both riders were crucial to kick off the beginning of a successful season.

Shaun Faccio, a South African native, faced the best wakeboarders in his home country. Battling it out at the first stop of the South African Wakeboard Association Pro Tour, Shaun came out on top for the win. The next stop of the SAPWT will be March 2-3 at the Eastern Cape Powerboat Club in Port Elizabeth.

Riding behind a Tige Z3 in the Kalinka Wakesurf Cup, Dominic Lagace started off the season right where he wanted: on top. Dominic had solid rides and landed big tricks in Thailand to secure the #1 spot in the first stop of the Kalinka tour.

“Our athletes across the board are showing consistency and are determined to stand at the top of the podium again and again,” stated Charlie Pigeon, Tige CEO. “I am proud for them to represent the Tige brand around the world.”
