Tap Into Versatility

Any Tige can do whatever you throw at it, thanks to TAPS 3. Whether you’re craving more performance or prefer to cruise in world-class comfort, TAPS 3 makes it effortless to dial in your perfect ride each and every time. 

Built on years of success, TAPS 3 was engineered with the most effective and forward thinking technology available. The delayed convergence of TAPS 3 and natural performance of the Convex V forms the longest, most perfect and powerful surf wave on either side of the boat—all while making the other side of the wave fair game within three seconds. This kind of performance can only be found behind a Tige. 

You Surf, We Adapt

The all-new TAPS 3 Surf System changes the way you wakesurf. Switch your side, style or size instantly, and without ever losing the quality of the legendary Tige surf wave.

High on your List

TAPS 3 conquers the demands of convenience and quality, all while intuitively connecting riders to their surf wave like never before. In tandem with the Convex V Hull, TAPS 3’s list-enhancement capabilities will result in the quickest, cleanest, most powerful transfer and a surf wave that’s second to none.

The Science Behind the Surf

LIST
When you’re ready to surf, all three TAPS 3 plates will get in on the action and serve as a list enhancement device. TAPS 3 will shift the Convex V Hull into its prime performance position. 

YAW
When TAPS 3 is engaged, it places your Tigé into an optimum degree of yaw. This allows water to asymmetrically release off of the sides of the boat, channeling the power to your surf side. 

DRAW
As your boat is both listed and put into a yaw, the power of the Convex V Hull and the Coanda Effect is enhanced. The hull then draws deeper into the water making the sweet spot even sweeter.

Tap Into Versatility

It all started back in 1995 with the development of the original TAPS (Tige Adjustable Performance System) technology and the Convex V Hull, making Tige the first inboard to give you full wake control and trim capability.  

With over 75 years of combined experience in boat design and wake development, Charlie Pigeon, Blake Pigeon, Eddie Gugliemetti and more of TeamTige spent countless hours perfecting the TAPS 3 Surf System. Every component from the Convex V Hull and side surfaces, TAPS, swim platform, Surf + Wake XL Ballast, Raptor Series 6.2L engines, and propellers were evaluated, and then reevaluated. With integrated leading technology working together as one, the TAPS 3 Surf System makes Tige far and away the front-runner in versatility. 

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

The greatest progress made is by pushing the status quo, not by conforming to it. The TAPS 3 Surf System went through rigorous testing to provide you with the best possible experience.  

Well-Versed in Versatility

The center plate, the original TAPS system, gives you precise control over the running attitude, planing, and maneuverability, as well as wake shape control for wakeboarding and waterskiing.

Ready When You Are

When you’re ready to wakesurf, the outer plates will engage to create the list, yaw, and draw that generates the most powerful surf wave you’ll ever experience.
