Helmets sometimes help, sometimes not. I know 2 guys that got concussions wearing a helmet but then again some riders have taken a board smack to the head where a helmet would have been a good idea.

Some helmets have ear protectors too. I blew out an ear drum this summer hitting the water hard. Wore a helmet for rest if season (with plugs and ear protector).

Congrats...I'll probably always have a slalom boat, but the wakeboard boats are great. Tons of space, and of course, being an MC its even better!!

Nice boat. Mine is pretty much the same, but Navy Blue. I know how you feel about a long winter. Picked up my 07 X1 in January of this year, made for a long 3 months. Then pretty much every day in May was 20 plus mph winds.

We had a great time this summer with the boat. Got out last weekend for some surfing. Hopefully I'll get out a couple more times.

I second the thought on the removing the hard tanks and installing some bags. It gives you tons of room for storage. I put 400's in but I'm thinking of going up to 750's this winter to make the surfing better.

Enjoy the new boat.
