I'm contemplating being on the demo team for centurion for the INT in central california. The boat that centurion wants used is the avalanche which is a fairly big boat at 22 feet in length and 100 inch beam. My question regards how well do you think this boat will perform on small waterski lakes like the ones INT uses in this area. Personally i think the cyclone which is closer to the X2 and san in size is a better fit for the tournament lakes. From experience the smaller boats like the X2 and the SAN have an easier time putting out good wakes on a ski lake. They are even noticeable better than the VLX. The cyclone has a 91 inch beam and is 20'8 in length.
any info or feedback would be greatly appreciated. and any cyclone c4 owners feedback would be great as well. I'm leaning towards the cyclone duee to it's size and garageability.

Maybe you're missing my point. when i say a small lake i mean narrow, 4 to 5 feet deep, 1/4 to 1/2 mile long with islands on the end to turn around.
In these shallow lakes the wake acts funny and it seems that the smaller the boat the better the performance in wake size. Do you know how deep your lake is Jesse?

Thats not the only boat that they'll give me.
I'm just trying to find out what boat will work best on a waterski lake.

Sounds like you have your mind made up. So use the smaller boat. Smaller hulls (usually) throw better wakes period.

Another thing to throw into the mix: If I remember correctly, the Avalanche draws over 30" of water when sitting still, no weight. If the lake is that shallow, that could be pushing it...especially in the turn arounds.

I would agree that the cyclone would tend to be the better boat for that situation. Smaller, easier to sink with weight and more manuverable. I think it's hull is a smaller version of the avilanche
