Thanks for the suggestions. We have talked about owning two boats but with that comes another dock, another lift, place to store it and maintenance. Might have to hold onto the moomba for another summer or two and save some coin! I am looking forward to teaching my kids to ski off the boom rather than drinking hundreds of gallons of lake water like I did learning!

While that's true - usually you can get by with a single dock and two lifts.

The storage of larger surf boats is problematic - you aren't going to stuff one in most garages anyhow so plan to pay for storage of the surf boat. And V-Drive maintenance is more problematic than DD.

Other option is to make a friend to surf with or vice versa.

a x2 might be good for you. my 2nd inboard was a 02 outback and while it was a great ski boat it didn't do squat for wakeboarding and of course surfing. it's a freaking tournament ski boat. here is my 07 x2 with GSA added, ps, the ski wake is really flat with the wake plate added.

Sorry all for the late reply. Mebunkeryou, if you want a crossover that tilts toward skiing, there is no better than the X-14. Agree with other posts re surfing. It's do-able, but you need a longer, more buoyant board (ie Liquid Force Fish or Hyperlite Landlock), a wake shaper (delta surf gate works really well), and extra ballast or a bigger crew. That said, I've kept the family happy with the X-14 DD. With just the four of us, factory ballast and a wake shaper, my 11 year old was surfing
