Wake-Shaper V2.0 (Wake Enhancement System)

Well it has certainly been an interesting year. The response from the first generation of Wake-Shapers was excellent. Thanks to everyone for their input in the previous thread! It is great to see that we are able to retrofit these older boats and produce a pretty amazing surf wave at a very reasonable cost. Since the end of the season (if that really exists) I have been hard at work designing, developing and testing the next generation Wake-Shaper. This new version Wake-Shaper 2.0 is finally here and has the following features:

-All Aluminum Tabs
-Stainless Steel Hardware
-Folds Flat for Easy Storage
-More Durable
-Rubber coated transom plate to protect gel coat
-Carrying Case
-New Graphics
-Available as unfinished, polished, or anodized to your color choice
-Adjustable to fit a wider variety of boat makes/models (still testing - specific makes and models to be released)
-Will work on all X2 models 2006+ (assuming no starboard and port tabs are installed already)
-installs between transom and swim step in seconds with no bolts or modification to boat.
-Best part of all is that 1 Wake-Shaper will work on both sides of the boat.

I have been incredibly busy making sure this is ready for next season so my apologies for not having any video yet. Please keep in mind that this is still in the testing stage and there are still some finishing touches that need to be made. I am hoping to get some new footage up in the next week or two, but in the meantime, please check out the prototype pics below. If anyone is interested, please send me a PM.

Nice looking, what do the two swing out pieces do? I get one is out depending on the flipping between the sides installed on, but is it a blocker of water flow over the top or what is the purpose?
