VONORE, Tenn. , May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MasterCraft Boat Corporation, a subsidiary of MasterCraft Boat Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: MCFT), she signed one of the best young skaters on the scene, Tyler Higham, to the MasterCraft team.
said George Steinbarger, Head of Revenue at MasterCraft. “Ty is the perfect addition to our wake-up team and will propel the sport of skateboarding in both the competitive and free-riding areas. We can’t wait to watch the remainder of his career unfold while riding behind the industry’s most iconic wake-up boat – MasterCraft XStar.”
At just 23 years old, Ty has been widely accomplished in the sport of surfing. During his rookie year in 2018, he achieved a bronze medal in the X Games Real Wake competition, won the Pro Wakeboard Tour Rookie of the Year, and earned the first ever dual mute switch.
The search for excellence in his skateboarding career continued throughout the following years. Ty was named Boat Rider of the Year as well as Trick of the Year at the 2020 Wake Awards.
Last year, Ty was invited to participate in the Red Bull Double or Nothing competition presented by Parks Bonifay. It went for second place with its stylish technical switch and 1080p rear heel, behind the world-famous MasterCraft XStar.
“Growing up riding the 2008 XStar, it truly became a dream come true by signing with MasterCraft,” said Ty. “I have spent over 1,200 hours on my childhood boat and this has enabled me to advance and create the foundation for my career today. Fast forward 15 years, riding Behind MasterCraft myself. It’s surreal.”
Ty’s progressive style and creativity behind the boat have inspired and influenced both the newer as well as the older generation of surfers. Whether the secret to Tay’s success is his work ethic, his maturity beyond his years, or his humble attitude, one variable remains constant – his quest to become a proven prodigy and win the world championship.
