Big hat. It shades your face enough to minimize racoon eyes from your sunglasses even if you forget sunscreen. I have two hats I switch between depending on my mood. Both have ties so I can wear them...

I don't recall feeling much difference in freeboard, but I never measured. I seem to remember the rear hatches on that generation X-30 had an odd shape / narrow shape. Even though the rear lockers on...

Also the slower you go, the bigger the wake gets. An interesting experiment is to drop the speed a little and make a corresponding reduction in your rope length. Crashes hurt less but the wake is...

Good thoughts. You can start much lower than 16-18 with kids. If they aren't crossing the wakes, you don't have to worry about a clean wake. Instead you can lengthen the rope and let them learn at...

Yes, repropping is boaterspeak for putting on a different propeller.

Your previous boat likely was not as much underpowered as it was propped for higher speeds. Oversimplifying it a bit, props are...

I previously owned a 2006 X-30 and later a 2008 X-15, both with the 5.7L motor. I spent more time with the X-15 and the X-30 was my first boat and first experience wakeboarding, so the comparison...

Photos of Baywatch girls all through the thread and what jumps out at me is the wakeboard boat has no tower. What a loser I've become.

My wife has mentioned more than one time that I can't seem to remember a single thing she asks me to do, but I can pull a 1980 movie quote from out of my a$$ like it was nothing. I'm a real catch.
