Think about it. No more crazy leaning boat, no more waiting, no guessing, no more fat sacs, back to wakeboarding in seconds, side to side transitions! Epic!

This could seriously be a game changer and I hand it to Malibu for stepping up to the plate and spending the time and money for the sport! Mastercrafts efforts are well, lacking to say the most.

That IS .... quite interesting. I'm not a surfer myself but I can see the advantages that surfgate offers. Sure beats the MC method of "bigger boat, more people, more ballast, more engine HP....and Oh yeah....WAY MORE Cha Ching! $$$$$

Props to Malibu...

HAHA Surf Tabs. They have never impressed me.

I am excited to see this in person. I want to think it will take a little more weight to get the size of wake we are used to with ballast now. Changing sides is a game changer for a lot of my customers.

If Malibu has this in their back pocket what does MasterCraft and Supra have in store for 2013?

More videos of 30's with stock plus 400#'s with Zane attempting to show of the surf wake?

At the very least, MC should be considering picking up a pro or two to showcase their surf waves!

I love Mastercraft boats, and I love wakesurfing. Really hoping they'll put forth some effort to keep my attention!
