24-Hour Wakesurf World Record Attempt

_DSC0327To kickoff the highly-anticipated Live Main Event portion of its MyWake Global Challenge presented by Polaroid Action, Tigé has partnered with Day 1 Wake team rider Trevor Miller to attempt to become the first-ever athlete to successfully complete 24 consecutive hours of wakesurfing. The record setting attempt, to be certified by Guinness World Records, will begin on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. at Sparks Marina in Sparks, NV. Spectators are encouraged to attend and witness the amazing feat, admission is free and open to the public.

Having spent the past five months training for the record setting attempt, Miller, a professional wakesurfer, will have technology on his side in addition to his natural skill set. Towing Miller for the entirety of the record attempt will be Tigé’s Z3 boat. With a wake specifically designed for progressive wakesurfing, Miller will have the luxury of going for the record behind one of the sport’s most capable boats.

To achieve the Marathon Wakesurf record, Miller must successfully ride for at least 24 hours straight. In accordance with the Guinness rules, he accumulates five minutes of break time for every full hour of riding completed. Falls are permitted, but riding must be resumed as normal with no delaying to give him a break.
