Unless MC comes out with something surf oriented soon, I'm jumping ship. (No pun intended of course) It wouldnt hurt for it to be all analog, no frills, and in the $60's please!

Well, one myth that seems to have busted... The NSS system ends up being used in combination with human and water ballast to lean the boat for competitions. To 'lean' the boat...

http://www.planetnautique.com/vb3/sh...Ballast-Config

So if you're thinking it simplifies surf wave tuning, yes agreed it does. Does it solve all things in tuning the wave without moving people or water... Think again.

I continue to experiment with my new X30 in reducing time to switch sides... I've got it down to a few minutes, yes I'd spend less time with a system, don't have surf tabs either but based on the transfer tricks i see, I'm not driven get it down to a real-time switch over ...

This was basically my conclusion after test driving the G23 and X30...MC was little more work, but thats part of the fun I decided.

My sales rep at Martin is saying it will be just a sac option. He may not have been told the truth or cannot say. For what it is worth, my 13 x30 can switch sides as fast as a surf gate boat. I fill all ballast including my plumbed in 750's in the back lockers and the small sacs (250's I think) under bow seats and use my surf tabs to change sides. Works good and makes it fun to fool around with going from one side to another. Still trying to learn to do it with no rope. Here is a shot of the port wake. Just me and my wife and 2 kids in boat. I will try to shoot a video later today or tommorow. Just not sure how to upload it.
