Christmas list

Just picked up the new addition to the family. 2018 NXT22. Now my wife wants my Christmas list. It's been 11 years since I bought a new boat, so help me out with some ideas. Got couple boards already. Kids got their tubes. Thinking I'd like to learn to single ski. All the pics on here make it look fun. As for the boat itself, it's pretty well equipped. Already got the stereo, amp, and sub. Don't want the tower speakers because I kept hitting my head on the last boat. What are the must haves, or fun to haves I should put on the list?

Sweet boat, like the colors! Not sure what you use for a music source. We use an iPad mini with 128 gig filled with music downloaded from Tidal streaming music service. Get your family setup with a good source for your tunes.

Yes! Bags for sure.... A ski will make the list, just no clue which one since I have absolutely no clue about skiing.
Black 'n green, your boat helped with our color scheme. Seeing yours helped sell us on the green. Music wise, we just throw Pandora on. I learned that when you have iPod/iPad with loaded tunes and kids, the same *%#?!#&@'ing Taylor swift songs gets replayed all day.

We also bought soft-sided coolers for food and additional drinks that exceed our built in cooler. The soft-sided coolers will fit in your coffin and under your spotter seat storage. They donít scratch your interior gelcoat and donít take up your floor space. I bought Polar Bear brand on amazon. Very sturdy, keeps ice for multiple days, priced well below Yeti brand. We also got some koozies that are Yeti knockoffs from Walmart, keeps your beer ice cold to the last drop. You are getting your boat late in the season. My crew bought wetsuits and we are still going out in our lake in California. Maintenance supplies - wax, spot remover, upholstery uv protection, etc.

Soft Coolers are good idea. Can never have enough cold storage... I see you are in paso. I might go big and ask for a nacemiento trip in the summer.

Sweet boat!

Christmas list...ummm.

Like hyman989 recommended a Phase5 wakesurf board (I bought an Oogle), a solid all around board everyone can use. Maybe a box anchor/slide anchor combo depending on where you do most of your boating, we have a set for Lake Havasu. Invest in some quality life jackets and ropes (surf, ski, and wakeboard). As far as slalom ski, I have a Connelly that does the job (F1) but if I do buy another one I would probably take a hard look at Radar skies.

Have fun and enjoy the year round boating.
