I've been looking into adding surf tabs to my 2012 X-15 (I realize that Gen 2 tabs cannot be added :mad::mad:) not so much for surfing, but for keeping the ride even when driving around Lake Powell with 10 people+ gear in the boat. The boat is very sensitive for weight distribution and was wondering if the surf tabs help at all in keeping the ride level.
Thanks!

Yes and can be used with the auto launch system also.

Surf tabs are nothing more then trim tabs.

I guess my question is if they work well enough to justify the price

Not the gen 1 tabs. they make the wave a little longer, but for the price of installation and stuff, id just plumb in more sacs.

Tabs keep the boat level under the auto lauch feature.
