At that price the older X30 is going to be king. With a newer style 06 X2 being just above that price range being a close 2nd. Quite honestly tho, in that price range you can get a much more surf specific boat/wave from another MFG that will beat any MC with a 40k price tag. MC really didn't hit surf spot competition/focus til 2012-2013. Will their boats surf? All of them will get you ropeless just about. However if you are looking for progression and a surf performance oriented wave pre 2012-13 MC kind of lacks.

I second that for the '06-'11 x30 & new-hull X2 reco. But would add the '04+ W23LSV and CC220, CC236 to that list. Search youtube to see some of the surf wakes. I'm not sure how the '04+ Xstar is, but have been surprised to see a batch of them swinging in under $40k. Could be worth a look. I hear some Centurions and MBs do really well in that price range but don't know enough to reco a model.

Cool

Thx for the info I heard that mc is more of a wakeboard / ski boat. Unless you have 80000 to spend.

Of course. And a surf machine. Most underrated surf boat out there.
