Take the #TigerChallenge

Well it started as a bit of fun last weekend during a photoshoot with new team rider Sonni Hoenscheid for a new advert which we have coming out in Standup Journal. One of the features of the new #TIGER fin is that it was designed to break free at low speeds to turbo charge your buoy turns and hence I asked Sonni to see how many spins she could do. From that we got thinking, lets run a fun competition and see what people can do!

Sonni Hoenscheid gets us going with this 720 and neat dismount!

Team rider and Maui waterman Bart de Zwart takes the #TigerChallenge after a hard training session with his new Tiger fin and 14ft Starboard. Wow that’s 5 complete rotations in 30 seconds!


Lets set some challenges and have some fun, so here are some pointers in getting your #TigerChallenge set up;


Top tips:

  • iPhone (or other smart phones) take awesome video, no need for expensive cameras.
  • Challenge a friend to do it with you, or post your video and tag a friend.
