The X-80 is a beast!

Today I saw one up close for the first time and these seem more pleasure craft than a watersport boats, they're huge!






Just another beautiful day in Az.

Ya, the X80 is a fortress on the H2o! Saw one at HavaZoo in Copper Canyon. Just a beast! I'd still like to see the new 300 on the water. Better yet, I'd like to surf behind one!

coz you never disappoint with the pics you supply. I've seen the x-80 up close too and they are HUGE, especially compared to my little '85 ss.

The 300 is a must see.. saw one and got on one at a open house in ktown. A x 45 was there too. Figured it was all staged open house. Owner must know someone from factory I guessed

Awesome pics ... what is the extra pole on the left side of the tower?

Is that the swing to offload the Waverunners like on most yachts?

seriously .... what is that extra pole?

It's a rod holder for deep lake fishing.

May not be factory installed. The few I've seen in person haven't had it, neither does the other 80 in the OP's pic...
