Yes and no... mostly no. MC had problems in only the 2012 models when they switched vendors. I've heard even the 2012s are fine now so long as the dealer installs the correct software updates. The...

I hope my wife doesn't read this, but I'd be more excited about the boat delivery than the baby delivery.

Congrats!

From a pure performance standpoint, they are both outstanding boats, but I think the X25 produces the same level of performance with less extra ballast than the A22. With just factory ballast, the...

I'll add a little... plenty of good advice on the techniques, but it sounds like part of what you need is how to address the fear.

First - second the helmet recommendation. Even if it never comes...

I'm trying to think of anything I'd not rather watch women do than watch wakesurfing. Maybe rhythmic gymnastics or synchronized swimming??? Nah... I think even those would be more interesting. ...

I find wakesurfing boring. HOWEVER... it does make sense to add it to the tour, though not as much sense as adding women to the tour. My reasoning is that what the tour needs for success is more...

It's been a few years since my buddy sold his, but my recollection is we were more like 60/40 toward the rear. There's a personal preference aspect as well and you might like a different ratio. ...

How sure are you about the speed? Have you checked it with GPS? My buddies prior boat was the same year and model - routinely rant it at 20-21 and 65-70' with a nice clean wake. It did have a trim...

I've got both an O'Neill and Billabong and can barely tell them apart... doubt the Rip Curl is much different. I'd go with whichever is cheaper, though would be best if you can try them on in person...

I have not been on an ATR, so I'm pulling info out of my a$$... but my understanding is the benefit to an ATR is entirely focused on rails. If you don't hit rails and don't need the more durable...

I agree 142 for a 190# rider. I'm more indifferent between the Modello and Timebomb. I've ridden both and can't tell much difference. If I were on a tight budget I'd feel perfectly fine sticking...

Pleasant isn't always the best for wakeboarding though it is closer to you. Being shaped more like a giant bowl, there isn't much shoreline to knock down chop so you don't see as much glass as other...

My experience was the One boots run a bit small. The length seemed true to size, but they had a shallow instep that made the boot fit more tightly than other Ronix boots I've had. I wear a true 11,...

Possibly true, but it would be the manufacturer getting sued, not g-mantrix as a buyer. It might be worth the try if you like everything about your X2 except for the ease of setting up for...

this is scaring me... it's like you reached deep into my brain and pulled out the exact reasons I bought my boat... except I don't have a lift so it's the amorous stares in the parking lot.

g-mantrix - what is your intended use? OP was a mix of skiing, wake boarding, and surfing, but you revived an old thread. Skiing is a tough combination with the other two sports. Many of the newer...

I'd throw the X20 in the mix. Good boat from what I understand but very few available used since you indicate you're not buying new.

You're right - my bad. I confused this with the other thread. Wake boarding it is/was.

I don't think you can find a better wakeboard boat at 40K than a SAN210 or any of the MC 205v variants. ...

Does a trampoline workout do more than just build flip and spin skills? Does it actually tire you out or build core strength - anything like that? How do you do a trampoline workout?

Remember that part of the 50K upgrade cost you mention is really a premium you're paying to go from a used boat to brand new. You could cut that in half if you were willing to get an X-25 with...
