You better send that boat back! It's clearly being built for Australia, not Scandinavia.

I haven't tried that, but I would think most young kids would struggle with the balance required to raise from their belly to standing. I think most adults would struggle with that if they don't...

The problem I found with my kids (especially when they were younger) was most surf style boards had too much flotation and made getting up difficult, but skim style boards had such tiny fins they...

I've been on another boat that had dark blue. Bad idea anyplace that gets really hot as you can't touch the surface if it's been sitting in the sun. This may not be a problem for those that don't...

Not sure I get it... These are a full system from switches and actuators all the way to the tabs themselves? Is there an option to have them attached in place of existing surf tabs and use the...

For sake of argument, lets say MC has sold 3000 boats each year (Wikipedia's claim for 2006) for each of the 5 production years the X-25 has been around, or 15,000 total units across all models. If...

Diesels sound like a good idea for performance purposes, but the number of lakes that have diesel fuel supplies could be a huge problem.

I would think the reversible seat would be an easy change.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I don't know if I would want more ballast in the X-25. I'm sure if I had it I'd fill it up, but at...

Definite downside to all the deeper V hulls is bleeding speed in turns. Not too noticeable wake boarding or surfing since you mostly drive straight anyway, but when zig zagging like when pulling...

I bet a simple fix would be to attach a buoy to the device with a rope just long enough so it could sit on the swim deck. Worst case is keep a buoy tethered until you're sure the device is attached...

My prior boat (X-15) cleaned up at a slower speed, so I had to re-think the way I taught kids to wakeboard when I got the X-25. Try using a really long rope and slow the boat down, then have them...
