Gary,

You are on the larger side for most off the shelf models, basically pushing you towards larger/longer versions in some cases.

Flimsy Flap or Surf System/Accessory

I suppose Centurion Boats has turned tail in some peoples minds and decided that they need a 'surf system' available beyond their 'hull' and other peripherals. Based on the video release, the new...

Like Steven said, lots of boards out. Lots of color this year, especially from the wakeboard brands.
