My new Malibu arrived today at Active Water Sports!!
As many of you know, I sold my previous VLX in order to upgrade to Surf Gate. Its been a long wait, but my new 2013 Malibu Wakesetter VLX arrived today at Active Water Sports.

Lots of work to do before she comes home:

Get 18" XD Badlands put on trailer (wrong wheels sent from factory)
Install Plug-n-Play sacks (750lb. Straight Line Sumo Sacks in each rear locker)
Install cooler hinge & shock (see cushion pic below, courtesy of Fman)
Install hot tube in place of side cup holder (see hot tube pic below, courtesy of Fman)
Install full Exile system (in-boats, sub, and tower)
Tint windshield with 20% (still unsure on this)

Here are the teaser pics I got. Ill post more when its done.




These pics show some of the interior mods I'm having AWS do for me (pics courtesy of Fman)

That is a sick looking boat. Those sparkles are so subtle until it hits the light just right.

Looks great let me know when your ready and we will do some board demos

Active water sports in Portland? What I would do for this boat... proabably sell one of my kids...

ralph 05-30-2013 4:28 PM

Exactly. You can always make more kids. That is the fun part.

Very very nice!

polarbill 05-30-2013 5:49 PM

Looks great.

Congrats on your VLX. Great looking color scheme... I'll keep my eye out on the Willamette for ya!

BTW, I think the tint would look great.

boardman74 05-30-2013 7:03 PM

Like the colors!

runin90lx 05-30-2013 7:57 PM

Nice IXFE. Post some better pics once you get them wheels on her...oh and of course we want to see it on the water.

Looks awesome!

I got a chance to go down and see the new VLX in person yesterday. Super stoked on the silver flake, red accents (inside and out), black floor, and dark gray vinyl.

Beautiful boat DBC!

ixfe 06-07-2013 10:56 PM

Just a few more before I have Exile installed.




polarbill 06-07-2013 11:28 PM

Yeah Buddy. That is sick. Is that a ski rack on there?

keithwallaz 06-07-2013 11:56 PM

That is sick! That will be our next ride!

Yeah, my wife still likes to slalom on occasion. I'm sick of it taking up room below the seats, so I'm going to see if the rack is a better solution.

DBC. Very nice boat. Thanks for posting.

Sweet boat! I love those wheels on the trailer.

Wow! I love the colors and the wheels kick a$$ too!

tyler97217 06-10-2013 9:27 AM

Guess I have not been on WW enough to see this. Nice work. Looks great. Hope to see it out on the water.

wakecumberland 06-10-2013 12:30 PM

I guess I missed this too! Very nicely done! Those badlands always look good on a trailer, good choice. I wonder if I could pull off the hinge and strut modification to the cooler seat on my Mastercraft? I'm definately stealing your hot tube idea for the cupholder location.
