Sometimes you need to hit the open road and here is the perfect complement to that wooden classic tied to the dock.
There is a wonderful parallel that can be drawn between bicycles and boats, when they are both coursing along their paths, but the kinship is all the more prevalent when they are drawn from that most classical of materials: wood. Ken Piper, hailing from Australia’s capital of Canberra, has constructed what could be the finest, and most modern, example seen on the pages of Cycle EXIF.
For nearly 25 years, Tige Boats has introduced a number of industry firsts, each one integrated into the product line to make your time on the water the best time. Tige Boats has powered an engineering benchmark once again, this time placing the power in the palm of the surfer’s hands with the all-new Tige Surf X System. Featuring the Surf Link™ Remote and adaptive hull technology, Surf X is the first of its kind, making you the creator of the ultimate surf experience.
“We have always applied a fresh approach to our product innovations,” stated Charlie Pigeon, CEO of Tige Boats. “Through maintaining close relationships with our owners, dealer network, and personally engaging with and using our own products, we are constantly increasing our competitive advantage and pushing the possibilities of watersports.”
The Surf X System is a collaboration of five components: the Surf Link™ Remote, AdaptiVX, Tige Touch2, Surf X Ballast, TAPS2, Convex V/Apex Hulls, and the new Raptor Series Engines by Indmar. With the industry’s leading technology working together as one, the Surf X System now equips your endless wave with endless possibilities. With the click of a button on the Surf Link™ remote, you can adjust the shape, style, length and height of your surf wave, right from the pocket. Whatever your skill level, Tige adapts to you, hooking you up with full capability for an unforgettable ride.
“The industry isn’t our main driver. It’s our owners expectations that guide us back to the drawing board year after year,” said Blake Pigeon of Tige Boats. “The Surf X System is the hallmark of our customer-driven culture."
The Surf X System is now available on 2015 Tige models. For a full description on the new Surf X System, visit tige.com/surfx or visit your nearest Tige dealer.
