Looks a little small even for a wide angle lens.

It seems like most of the industry is tripping over itself to come up with new surfing technology. I can surf, and I like that my new X30 is said to throw a nice surf wake, but I still see surfing as something that I will get into later in life when my body can no longer handle the punishment of wakeboarding. For me nothing can compare to that feeling of gliding across flat water then sailing up and over the wake. But I do respect the fact that others have their preferences, but to me...surfing....boring.

AZX450D nailed it! Surfing is fun but can get a little boring.

I'm still waiting to see someone make a widget that delivers a great surf wake from a tournament slalom hull.*

Ninja edit: *it must also be completely retractable to avoid screwing up the 30+mph wake.

X2. Just cannot get excited about surfing. It's sweet the first time you drink a beer while surfing for about a min, then its old.

I don't even like being in the boat while someone is surfing. Lame

I still ski a lot. Most of the time it's wrapped up and over 40 mph.

Fact is we surf in the morning before all the tuber toms show up. Then ski the 6 miles upto the sand bar for beers and grilling.

I take offense to being old. I'll accept the tired and too drunk. Regardless to what is thought surfing is a big part of the industry now. I know I've become a somewhat MC naysayer as of late but they really are getting flat out owned across the board.

The irony is the people doing the most wakesurf bashing are the ones who most benefit from some of these new surf technologies. Pure or hardcore surfers still look at these as at best small improvements in their ability to tweak the wave shape, but it doesn't change their requirement to weight the crap out of the boat or spend time reweighting to get the wave on the other side. Pure wakeboarders who view surfing as an occasional lark or fun to goof around with at the end of a long day wakeboarding or when the conditions are too choppy benefit by being able to quickly dial in an acceptable but not great surf wake.

I'd throw myself in that camp... Much prefer wakeboarding to surfing, which is exactly why I'm interested (depending on price) in some of these technology developments. I'd surf more often if it weren't such a production to setup the boat. It wouldn't change me into a surfer - would just add an hour every now and then to the end of my day on the lake.
