Stephen,

I own a 25LSV. The A24 is a very similar wake. We had 750 PNP on both sides of the motor. About 300lbs under the dash and the wedge was set in the 2spot. The beauty of the A24 wake is...

I took a wakeboard set behind one that was optimized a few weeks ago. The wake is seriously impressive, but Axis wakes have always been great. I usually say that the difference between a Malibu and...

B, first M235s aren't $200K. You can sit in a maxed out one for about $180 (Less than G23 with a super charged engine--M235's stock engine). And where on earth did you get the idea that a Malibu is...

Don't confuse sport and industry. Some of the best wakeboarding came before it was an industry. My point is let the athletes lead the sport and let the money follow. Not the other way around.

The 2017 MXZ has a whole new hull, a different prop and a different gear ratio. Also, wedge position plays a huge role. I see knuckleheads with their wedge in the 5 spot when surfing. I run my 25 LSV...

Unless I am wrong. That is not the current 24MXZ. That would mean that it isn't benefiting from the lifting wedge, new gear ratio or the 17" prop. The new 24 runs a much lower RPM.

The Moose is a WW legend. I don't understand why people take pleasure tormenting him. Live and let live. I would love to have his stoke level for a day.

Deep Vs are way overrated IMO. I'm speaking from the wakeboard side, but it seems that it would translate to surf. Deep Vs typically equal tall, but thinner wakes. I prefer a steep keel-drop, and a...

The box probably has a safety ramp. Practice olling flat and landing flat. Even if you come a little short, you will probably be fine.

It's the WW mean girls click. You can pretty much avoid them completely by staying in the general wakeboard discussion. Any DIY, dock or political discussion is their domain.

I was going to say that triple axels were for kooks, but a few 1,000 mile trips a year! If anyone could justify it, it would be you.
