New Surf Product Design from the Competition

I ended up on the news letter for correct craft because I was shopping both brands back in the day. I just got this today. Looks like a more robust design but similar design intent as the malibu system.

All I know is that I hope I don't see one of these on the lake we ski screwing up my smooth water and throwing waves that will swamp my open bow direct drive and eroding the shore line.... Just sayin....

There's a Supra on our 275 acre lake (including 2 islands) that likes to wake surf. We're out of the main area back in a bay behind a bunch of rocks so it doesn't affect us, but these kid's neighbor is my observer and man, does he ***** about how they slam his pontoon boat against the dock with those big waves! I think they're oblivious to others around them

by late, you mean us? I have yet to see surf tabs make this great of an effect on the wake. Now for a pro-sized surf wake... still nothing better than ballast that I've seen.

Yes us or MC. To my knowledge MC hasn't done anything for a surf specific hull or any other add-on design like the other two have.

I'm not talking about how good the other two add-on products are because I have yet to see them. Like you, I believe the best way to make a monster wave is to displace the water. After that then you can do stuff like shape it.

Regardless, we are late to the surf specific party.

Not sure who shot this but the new X-10 looks to carve up a pretty sweet surf wave on both sides http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=oItkqqKwEes
