Wicked Wakesurf setup on my X-35 Review!

Been talking to Joe from Wicked Wakesurf now for a while. The below is an outline of my ballast setup and before and after results. Needless to say I'm super impressed and happy. Many people might be surprised that Wicked Wakesurf did my MC. The reason Joe works mainly with Axis/Malibu is because there isn't a MC dealership within hundreds of miles where he can build gates off the back for everybody. I happened to tow my boat from Fl to Atlanta over a long weekend to have this done.

Setup:
08 MC X-35 LY6
Stock hard tanks with 750lb Fat Sac plug and plays from Wakemakers in rear lockers
Had extra 800lb Ronix Eight3 bag that we tried, but realized we didn't need it.

Before Pics/Vids (this was last year with only stock ballast tanks filled, no gate)



In Progress and After:

Looks great! Wave looks awesome.

Do you have any concerns with all the pressure being put on the swim platform? I wonder if can withstand the constant pressure from the side...

Looks great! How much does it weigh and how did you make the attachment to the platform? Looks better than mine!

Looks good. I have the tabs on my boat and it works quite well, and budget friendly. I think I spent $450 for both.

Thanks man the pics don't do it the justice it deserves! From Joe, "custom builds it's best to contact him via the Wicked Wakesurf website, but standard pricing is $499/set, and $275 for a single side.

Not at all, I think the angle that the paddle protracts out into the water doesn't produce an extreme force against the swim platform. I would venture to guess if you used a more aggressive angle the paddle sticks out into the water the greater the force imposed on said swim platform.

Why not make something that eliminates the tacky straps?
