Wake gate, product review.

I had a chance to meet up with TT member Scott, and his sister this morning in Southern California. Lake Paris was the venue.

Having just sold my 2013, sacked out X – 30, with surf tabs..... I thought I might be a good second opinion, on his device.

We are shopping for an X – 2, so the opportunity to ride on Scott's boat with the wake – shaping device, had a double bonus.

With stock ballast full +2 400 pound bags in the rear lockers., Scott attached the device in about 30 seconds, including showing me how to do it.

This thing is legit, even for a Rider like myself that hasn't been doing it that long.

At 10.5 mph The WAVE was perfectly clean, as clean as my X – 30 ever was.
The boat remained level the whole time.

I weigh 180 pounds, and ride a 4 foot seven and Soulcraft Board.

I was able to recover from approximately 18 to 20 feet behind the boat.

Riding conditions, we're typical for a Saturday, a few waves here in there lots of other boats out.

Compared to the x30, the wave was not as tall,
I believe this could be fixed, with more people or more weight in the boat.

Scott and his sister, basically sold me on an X – 2, and the Wake shaping device he created

He took some GoPro pictures, and I'm sure he will post them later.

P.m. me if you have more questions, or just post them here

This might be a stupid question, but did you ever look into like a 20mxz malibu? So you wouldnt even have to screw with make a "gate"

I'm confused why you would sell an X-30 with arguably one of the best waves in the current industry to change to a smaller boat with a strap-on?

The lake he wants to go to only allows a boat to be a maximum of 20ft.

We did , it was nice

This device is going to be nice for someone looking to stay in the $35-45k range... Like me.

It take 20-30seconds to install or remove.

Um, pics of the "device," the wake, how it mounts, etc? Without any of that, is this truly a review?

I was solo , was just dropping in on Scott's Family outing....
As I mentioned he took some GoPro footage and will likely post soon. .. But I was back in my car at 1030 am and he returned to his day on the lake.

I love pics too!! Stories aren't as good without.
He will prolly post a link after the weekend when they get home.

Sounds good. In regards to the other thread, yes good info but a few pics over here would save reading through 37+ pages.

Thanks!

The product is more refined now...
No wood parts....
It made of White smooth plastic, machined out and smooth to the touch....

He's done well, and the results are quite nice.
