Did you use plastic kitchen cutting boards for the tabs?

Yup, cutting boards, basics but never break

My tab on the photo is small (17"L), i'm gonna try with a bigger one, the malibu surfgate is long in fact (22"L)

When it comes to the final version, get a piece of King Starboard. It machines like wood and should be perfect for your application.

how u going to make it fit the back of your hull its not flat like the one pictured above. i know i am made some mock ups of cardboard and wood and think i have one just need to water test it . what is the actually size of the mu gate? 22" is the length right? looks like it tucks in flush when not in use are you going do the same to swim deck? i want to build one for my x-star i think it would awesome i have surf tabs and can make it all work just need to figure a what to make the gate out either king starboard or stainless which would be better and what lenco actuators and switch to go with cause u only want gate deployed at a time or has anyone tried both at once?

You may need to make a contoured mounting block that matches the transom and has a flat surface for mounting the tabs/gates..........

Here is a video of one and from I can see it doesn't do much of anything other then mess up the face of the wave.

Moreover, it seems the method of use is to weight the boat evenly and then deploy the gate on the opposite side that you want to surf on.

It doesn't look like a "game changer" to me. I think it will be just something to order like the surf tabs now and end up being a big waste of time and money.
