I will agree with all.......FRIKING AWESOME........I can tell you my wife drives like a champ and loves pulling me boarding and skiing, but she absolutely is terrified driving the boat during the busy times (well the only to surf) for surfing because it leans so much.........Showed her the video and she wants a BU pronto.

I have to say this and pure vert ballast have been two things that have got my attention over the years.

I am not sure I understand how the surf gate works to make a wave. I understand that the surf tab (or trim tabs as they have been called for years in the rest of the boating industry). if you want your boat to tilt to the port side, you trim down the starboard surf tab. So with the surf gate, do you push out the starboard gate to make the desired starboard side wave or does the starboard gate give you a port side wave?

Did the X30 Zane showcased have tabs on it?

Just take a standard trim tab and install it horizontal instead of vertical ?

I'm perplexed how this works too. Does it push the tail to the side to make the boat move forward slightly off it's centerline axis?

It looks like it works like a plow. Turns a furrow of water over just like in the dirt (for the farmers out there)
