Having a friend with a surf boat and you with a 214, and there is nothing you can't do on the lake.

Peace.
and friends with a surf boat mean they probably have a bigger cooler!

I second Brian's comments having also come from a (1988) 190. It's a very solid compromise for a family that slaloms, along with those other water sports. With the ballast full it's fine for wakeboarding but the hull/wake really only provides pop on one side. We surf too but don't let go of the rope (I guess that's not really surfing). I think it's reasonable on gas too. In the future when we move to two boats, I'll probably do a 46/23 and an old 190 restomod =)

I have an 08 X14 and everything here is accurate. The roominess, power with the MCX, and versatility make this an amazing boat. Surfing is not an option and the lack of rear freeboard, especially, would terrify me if I were crossing another boat's wake. My kids grew up on this boat wakeboarding and skiing but now they're not around to use it much so unfortunately, I'm going to sell my X14. I'm in mourning. I never thought I'd ever sell this boat. I also own an 15 X46, which is great for surfing but forget waterskiing behind it, even though they say you can and there's a pre-programmed configuration for doing so.

I think it's funny a dealer would say it compromised on all the sports it supports...I mean obviously it did. It's not a 197, or an x star, etc. The question is, is the compromise acceptable. In my humble opinion, there's currently no boat that does what it does as well as it does. In my next incarnation, I'll have a 190 and a larger wakeboard/surf boat. We are mostly skiers and foilers though.
