Here is a different thought.

I don't care for the look of that but I've only seen it in pictures. It certainly is a departure from the norm and looks to have some excellent functionality. It'd be nice to have your big guy back there during a surf session. I'm sure wakeboarders like it to when they're putting on their board. From my understanding its removable too.

malibu 03-21-2011 1:01 PM

Wow! what do they call that addition above the swim platform. I wish Sanger would send one of those surf series boats my way.

tonyv420 03-21-2011 2:12 PM

Weird looking, probably functionally it is fine, but still looks funny to me.

duffymahoney 03-21-2011 3:46 PM

If sanger just made their top cap taller they would be my favorite boat out. Always loved the quality, wave etc....

dennish 03-21-2011 5:13 PM

V237 has the taller top cap. 9" higher than the V215. Great surf wake both sides.

getssum 03-21-2011 5:18 PM

Guys, There's no weight in that duck tail, it's just there to make it easier to put your board on/off with out whacking it on the transom.

Surf series refers to the extra trim tabs on the sides of the boat in back, that's all.

duffymahoney 03-21-2011 5:53 PM

I want like 2 feet taller:) Boats need to be taller and safer.

surffresh 03-21-2011 7:17 PM

what ever it's all about , you would think that they could come up with something other than "Surf Series" and it's almot a carbon copy of Supreme's font used on the V226, they might as well label their wakeboard boats "Super Air"

dennish 03-21-2011 8:32 PM

Actually Sanger used that font and name 3 years ago. Supreme is using the same manufacturer of the graphics. Sanger was the first "surf series".

rallyart 03-21-2011 11:39 PM

They wouldn't use 'Super Air' anyway. What Sanger owner would want that? :eek:

surffresh 03-22-2011 7:04 AM

Thanks for setting me straight Dennis, we just DO NOT see any Sangers here in FL or Supremes for that matter so the first "Surf Series" I saw was James Walkers. So I need to change my tune and say shame on Supreme for carbon copying Sanger's Surf Series. I just hope Sanger will forgive me :confused:

tuneman 03-22-2011 9:10 AM

Hmmm.....a big expensive fiberglass seat/enclosure hangin' off of the back....where are the speakers and lights!

PictureMeRollin 03-22-2011 3:23 PM

I sat on that duck tail thing and it really makes a lot of sense! I think its a great idea.

motogod77 03-22-2011 3:32 PM

Wow a "Surf Series" with a manual trim tab huh?

dennish 03-22-2011 4:09 PM

@moto When we tested the original surf tabs we found that the center tab did not need to move that the other tabs did everything you need. The Sanger, without the surf tabs, has a great wake with the manual trim tab both sides no adjustment needed.

Look a little closer and you'll see the surf tabs on the sides that are hydrolic.

gunz 03-23-2011 5:09 PM

So the middle one does nothing?
All the real work is done by the side TT's?

I was thinking of experimenting with my V210,I have a middle,but no sides.

hatepain 03-24-2011 3:51 PM

Not that it does nothing but its really just stationary and standard on the boats. The work yes is done with the side tabs. They help to list the boat over more.

wofrankwo 03-24-2011 5:52 PM

@rich ...... i was thinking of making my middle trim tab hydraulic and someone posted on here that i would be pleasantly surprised if i did that ....... a family friend has a 2005 like mine and he has an adjustable trim tab out the back and the wakeboarders say it makes a big difference in the wake as it really makes it taller ........ so i gotta believe it would help out and maybe that might really help you with making your wave bigger

wake_upppp 03-24-2011 6:57 PM

If Sanger made their top cap taller, it would ruin the look. I prefer a lower profile in a boat. I cant stand all these boats with tall a$$ sides myself.

wake_upppp 03-24-2011 7:07 PM

A CENTER trim tab will never make a hulls wake bigger, only smaller. The wake with the trim tab all the way up is the same as no trim tab at all. The wake with the trim tab in any position from flat to all the way down will lift the transom and push the nose down and only make the wake smaller.

gunz 03-24-2011 11:10 PM

I can do the side ones,The custom exhaust wont be in the way,and it would help.
I will look into this.

gwnkids 03-25-2011 12:51 PM

Sparky is dead on about the wake plate.
I had a Supra 22 SSV and the adjustable plate was a very good addition when the boat was fully loaded, you put the plate down for help getting out of the hole and when on plane raise it all the way up.
It was also helpful in taking the peak out of the wakeboard wake for people who did not like the steepness but it in no way makes the wake larger. You need the wedge for that.

I think with the advance of surfing all boat manu's are gonna start making taller top caps. They could keep their looks with a little bit of work:)

wofrankwo 03-26-2011 12:02 AM

from my past boating experiences i believe that when my nose of the boat is down in the water i end up plowing and throwing a larger wake ......... so i want to think that when im planing high and the more i can plow the front end of the boat down the stronger wake i will throw as the boat plows through the water ........ if i am wrong ( which happens quite frequently i might add ) then why do some of the wake boats have center trim tabs that move? i get that when the trim tab is lowered the back rises but that at the same time this pushes the nose down and this makes the boat plow? and i want to think that the more hull i have in the water the more wake i will throw? id like to make my rear plate hand adjustable at first ....... cutting it then hinging it up and down to see what happens

Well that is true but if you take a boat which has always had a fixed tab on it and replace it with an adjustable tab which can move higher than the fixed then YES you will be able to make a larger wake with an adjustable tab. I added a tab to my boat and I recommend it 100%, it was a great upgrade

wake_upppp 03-26-2011 10:57 AM

A ride plate does not make a bigger wake period. It is true as Darren said if you take a boat with fixed plate and either take it off or replace it with an adjustable one, that will make a bigger wake because the transom is not being lifted with the plate all the way up. Like I said a hull without a plate or an adjustable plate in the all the way up position makes the biggest wake PERIOD. With that said I agree an adjutable plate is a very good upgrade because adjusting hull attitude on the fly is very usefull.

gwnkids 03-26-2011 1:10 PM

Frank, In the good old days (when I skied) the prostar I had used what they called hook built into the hull along the transom to give the boat lift (forcing the nose into the water) they do this to eliminate the wake for a flatter ski wake and eliminating the porpoising that happens at speed. All of the manufactures use something to reduce the porpoising but not create lift as to get a larger wake. The hydrolic wake plate does both when deployed it can eliminate the porpoising and lift the rear of the boat or raise it all it way and have the ability to have a very large wake. When I had the Supra we only wakeboarded so Im not sure on how if effected the surf wave? I will leave that to the guy with all of the knowledge -Dennis- he has tested and refined more hulls for surfing than anyone and he said it has no effect on the wave.

wofrankwo 03-26-2011 3:54 PM

okay im a believer!!

so if i make my plate adjustable ....... if i get it to go higher then it is now at flat out the back my wake should get bigger? will i then be able to use less ballat to get the same wake? and if i turn the plate down will it be like adding front weight? so then i may not have to use front ballast?

i have plenty of wake but if i could get away with less ballast which is now at 2000 lbs that would be really cool

wake_upppp 03-26-2011 6:59 PM

Frank, yes if any plate is all the way up and out of the water verses flat that wake will be bigger because the up plate is not pushing the transom up. The up plate will mean you won't need as much rear ballast as with the flat plate, follow? Now if you turn that plate down, you are basically taking weight out of the rear and moving it forward and essentially making a smaller, more rounded wake. The center trim plate cannot be a substitute for weight. Any given hull will make it's biggest wake with no trim plate touching the water and the correct amount of weight ratio, front to rear for that given hull. Understand? It will never allow you to use less weight and achieve the same wake as correctly weighted. I think I am sounding redundant now. Lol

wofrankwo 03-26-2011 7:22 PM

hello ... 54 .... LOL thats what i tell my kids as an excuse for my " oldness"
