The solar eclipse was awesome. I'm hoping the new star eclipses that. Cheezy, but couldn't resist...

IBR - that is a nice surf wave. seems to me that people forget that the Xstar really wasn't all that bad.

I suppose it's better than what Nautique did with the G boats, being marketed as "Super Air" like the 210/230, when there's no air involved in why people are buying them.

Hard to sell boats when people aren't wakeboarding as much. I love wakeboarding but I want a boat that is going to be great at both, i.e. the X23....

The reality is that the only growing part of the towboat market is wakesurfing. MC is in business to sell boats, you can't make money selling a production boat to the 7 people who don't care at all about the surf wave.

Most people who are that hardcore (i.e. professional wakeboarders) don't buy the boats.
