Combining a popular wakeboarding event with a popular contest venue, the 2008 Tigé Pro-Am Wakeboarding Championships will be held June 20-22 in Portland, Oregon.

The annual Tigé event is a favorite among the world’s top pro and amateur riders and wakeskaters. Last year’s Pro-Am was held in Cancun, Mexico, drawing more than 100 competitors and nearly 2,000 spectators.

“We’re excited to be holding the Pro-Am early in the season this year,” said Kip Davis, Tigé Director of Marketing, “and we’re really pumped to bring it to Portland. This is a great community with huge wakeboarding support and has always been one of the most popular locations for a contest.”

Registration and additional information about the 2008 Tigé Pro-Am will be made available soon. Check for updates.
