CANCUN, Mexico — Continuing its tradition of competition in tropical settings, the fifth annual Tigé Pro-Am Wakeboard Championships, presented by Rockstar Energy Drink, is sure not to disappoint, as it will be held at the incredible La Isla Mall in Cancun, Mexico, Oct. 19-21.
The format for the Pro-Am Championships is unique to this event. A “skins” format, in which riders continue to accumulate points for skins as long as they keep winning, will be used again. The rider with the most skins will be declared the champion.
This contest will feature 10 divisions, including: Pro Men, Pro Women, Junior Men, Pro Wakeskate, Women’s Wakeskate, Amateur Wakeskate, Amateur Boys, Amateur Women, Open Men and a Latin American division, which is presented by Reef.
Competition in Cancun will be heated, as two-time Pro-Am Wakeboard Championships winner Rusty Malinoski looks to capture his third consecutive Pro-Am title. However, Phillip Soven is on a hot streak and aims to stop Malinoski dead in the water by winning the event and capturing his fifth consecutive victory of the season.
