Tige Boats signs pro surfer Bethany Hamilton. “Surfing is my passion, so taking it behind a boat is going to be a fun adventure,” stated Bethany. “I’m excited to be a part of the Tige family and represent the brand!” (tigeboats.com).
Bethany's life forever changed when she experienced a shark attack amidst an emerging surf career at the age of 13. Today, her story has been seen by millions on the big screen via Soul Surfer (2011). An inspiration. So how does she do it?
Uh-oh watch out ladies. Does this mean Bethany Hamilton is going to be competing in the pro wakesurf tour? What does this mean for the sport of wakesurfing? One thing is for certain, she will definitely be getting a sweet new boat from Tige and her and her friends will fall in love with its endless wave.
This is the 2nd pro surfer signage on board now with Tige Boats. Top ranked mens WSP Pro Tour surfer, Josh Kerr, was the first addition to a winning team of talent and wakesurf stars like Dom Lagace. Josh was definitely no where to be seen at a wakesurf contest, and why would he? Perhaps Bethany can be the first to step out on the stage, win or lose, and support the inland surfing community?
