Well done to everyone who took place in TAG 2017 - we will be back next year!



The Format:

Each team of 2 riders will get 15 minutes on the cable tow between them, only 1 may be on the water at any time. There will be up to 3 other teams sharing the cable for this time. - Just get in as many tricks as possible – the more unique tricks the pair do, the more points they will score, the pair share a score sheet so must not repeat their team mate’s tricks. Points are given for surface tricks, obstacles and air tricks. If you fall just run back to the start and TAG your team mate in before they can hit the water! Each team member must do a minimum of 2 laps each or the team will be disqualified. At the end of the session the score sheets will be added up and the top 3 teams will advance to the final. The finals follow the same format as the qualifying rounds but now there are only 3 teams on the lake. The time limit is shortened to 10 minutes for this round so choose your tricks wisely! In this round each team member must do a minimum of 1 lap each or face disqualification. The cable will be run at 31 KPH, and handles will not be taped up.

The Rewards:

We will have a range of fantastic prizes brought to you from ou sponsors.
